Water Rates as a way to fund John Dickert’s Fun and games

One of my favorite cartoons on the Great John Dickert Mayor of Racine  is above

 

 

To the Story

As you know (because our Mayor is telling us) The City of Racine in land locked we can not grow away from the Lake, if I understand correctly from time to time The City of Racine has tried to trade with the  Village of Mount Pleasant for land south of the City in and around Mead St (East) to I understand say 21 St (south) but Mount Pleasant is not interested.

This is one of the reasons we are told Root Works needs to happen this idea would give Racine areas to develop (just like the old Porter’s Project!)  You know the City gives the owner Money a TIF is made the streets turn to Gold

Porter’s project today

Not the project we hoped for (Photo from the Journal Times)

So with many needs and many Court Cases in Federal Court what is a Mayor to do?

How does he find the money?

Might  a way be Water Rates with forcing as many as possible to buy Water from the City of Racine?

After all the Poor Farmers on Hwy V will not only be made to pay for the Water and Sewage lines  run thorough the Farmers land into Caledonia TID 4 (now that is a story that may yet end up in court and be rather upsetting to many in the Racine GOP perhaps even Governor Walker)

Not only will they have to pay for the lines but over time buy City of Racine Water use City of Racine Sewer with that money going to our dear Mayor’s pocket!

Just think how much Water a farmer may have to use!

As well if/when Caledonia builds up how many more homes/businesses will be buying The City of Racine Water  at what is seen by some as high rates that our Mayor could jack up at anytime!

    and what happened to the deal regarding treated sort of water being sent down the Root River (community west of mke).  Another dirty deal?  Another poop on you story?   Is this deal too still in the works?  Hush Hush, under the table.commanded!..

    taxpayers v. public servants taxpayers v scjohnson too  The Wind is really talking and it is moving the flatiron of which I am apar!!!!  WOW

    • No deal yet since the water deal for Lake Michigan Water has (and may not) happen yet.
      With the Millions in “Development” being help up by a lack of Water, knowing how Wisconsin now works, we will see Shit sorry treated sewage in the Root River soon.
