    It’s better paved 1 yr and water don the next. Any time 2 utilities are done 1 time isn’t good. Even if it seems batched & efficient, done at 1 time… too much equipment on 1 road. – NOT good. – …Insurance….

    With MANY more to follow… Who pays for this old infrastructure? You best believe it won’t be American Water. Am I the only one who remembers that American water won a 12 mil lawsuit against the city of Scranton 10 years ago??? How about the one man who predicted the housing crash?? They made a movie about it?? Today he invests in WATER. Start BREATHING heavy…. Air will be next… Listen….. things MUST CHANGE!,. it is not an Ozzie and harriet world any longer. Does anyone really want more crap from wallshart and the dollar store? No jobs, kids with not an ounce of common sense. Their rights of passage stripped away.. Now their FB posts will effect their future just as much as a criminal record would… A hard rain is gonna FALL
