Treatment being forced on city

Re: Former sewage project insider speaks about treatment plan (Letters, Nov. 30)

After reading the letter by Maleea Acker, I was convinced that once again we, the taxpayers, are getting a proposed plan forced down our throats by the politicians and bureaucrats because they  think it’s “the thing to do.”

On one side we have the scientists and the professionals, the ones who know what they’re talking about, saying the plan is wrong and should not be carried out, and on the other side we have the politicians and the bureaucrats saying it’s the thing to do and it’s going to be done.

As one writer pointed out, there were 24,478 people that voted against the plan via their political vote and 14,519 who voted for Murray Rankin who is for the plan.

I am totally  fed up with politicians continually wasting our tax dollars over and over again and forcing projects down our throats that we are against.
