Sewer debacle still hurting Colwood

Re: Colwood must rein in spending, Letters, Oct. 5, 2011.

Buried in this letter was the fact that only five residents had signed up for the Solar Colwood initiative.

One reason might be that, with the $10,000 lien that Colwood has put on all houses in the Lagoon area this year, most residents can’t afford to install solar panels.

Several years ago we were forced to join up to the sewer line, at our own expense.

Now, in 2011, Colwood is in debt, someone had a great idea. Why not tell all those residents on the sewer line to cough up another $10,000?

No choices, just pay up. Otherwise it will be added to your taxes.

A new mayor won’t make this nightmare go away, most of the candidates are just recycled councillors.
