In 2009 a five year plan to essentially *triple* both our water and sewer rates was approved in order to fund repairs and upgrades to our aging water and sewer infrastructure (and increasing water costs). What exactly failed? What is the repair? Might such failures be expected elsewhere? How does or doesn't this failure mode relate to the ongoing plan for repairing and upgrading our sewer infrastructure (for which we are presently paying dearly)? Thanks for relaying the City notice -- but let's look beyond just the traffic inconvenience, please! ;-)

Hi Gerry, Thanks for providing background information and some context. I'm always more than happy to look into such matters and appreciate the insight/tip. MB Patch wasn't here in 2009 but I have lived in MB since the early 1990s and wasn't aware of the context you've offered, as I'm sure many residents aren't. So many people go about their daily business and aren't aware of city matters. & indeed, bringing people up to date on such topics is one of Patch's goals. BTW: Are you going to run for City Council? :)

I agree with Gerry, the water rates were increased significantly over a four or five year period to repair or replace the entire MB sewage infrastructure. Is there any accountability or progress reports on what the city is doing to upgrade the entire sewage system? For those unaware that the rates are increasing, all they need to do is review their water bill, and the reference on the bill to the increase, and the reference to go to the city website www.citymb.info. Would be nice if patch would keep- people updated on this if possible as the the city doesn't appear to this.
