Re: “Getting hosed

Having your sewer waste line replaced is YOUR responsibility if you have a house that needs the foundation replaced. In this instance the house is and has been maintained and the tap/reconnection fees will go to nothing concrete. Think about this with common sense please: Having the utilities kept on would cost an insignificant amount each month if no utilities were used. According to the law, one could connect the utilities for a month, turn them off for a couple years, and keep doing that and it would cost what? . . . a few hundred bucks! not over ten thousand! $11, 000 is a lot of money for most people. The Knaufs could fully pay for a year of college for their daughter with this kind of money. In this situation they are getting basically nothing, for what most would consider a lot of hard work. $11,000 is not cheap. . . not for most of America that is. The main problem is that people aren't being notified of this when they get these services turned off. This is not a new house, it doesn't need/has not needed $11,00 worth of maintenence, this policy shoudn't apply. This is the problem with government getting too big, they monopolize our resources and make people pay large sums of money to get revenue, because people don't vote for tax increases to maintain our infrastructure. Our waterlines do need to be maintained, but an $11,000 bill compared with what most of us pay for utilities that we use per month is outrageous.
