Sauk Village Trustees Refuse To Give Back To Residents.... As Promised

Sauk Village Trustees Burgess, Washington, Jones and Tates voted down giving residents a $1 per 1000 gallons reduction in water rates during the March 28, 2017, village board meeting.

One reason there are village board meeting minutes are so current and future boards can't have selective memory or claim lack of knowledge.

The March 3, 2015, meeting minutes clearly state that the $2.00 increase which raised rates to $7.50 per 1000 gallons was to pay for the water treatment plant project and if loan forgiveness occurred the increase is not needed and could be a savings for residents.

Sauk Village has received nearly $4 million in partial relief however, board members refused to provide relief to village residents and now have other plans for the money.

Isn't time to give back to our residents......some Trustees think not.
