Throughout its history the town of Hanoverton has been administered with fiscal responsibility, frugality and efficiency. It is a quaint and historical little town and attracts people from all over to walk Plymouth Street and view the old homes and buildings, listen to stories of the underground railroad and dine at the Spread Eagle Tavern. Now because of an EPA mandate, it has to construct a sewage system that will put an unbearable financial burden upon its residents. There's no help for this town. What happened to all those funds for these shovel ready projects Obama was talking about in his stimulus package?
As I travel throughout the county I see water and sewer lines extended for miles into remote areas at no cost to the residents. Something isn't right here. There's something at play that I can't quite put my finger on. Does somebody have an ax to grind against this town? Is there somebody behind the scenes pulling the strings that will financially benefit from this town's misery? Can you imagine the audacity of someone suggesting that if the town were dissolved it would fall upon the county to bear the construction cost of the sewer project? At the county, state or federal level there has to be an agency that will extend a helping hand to resolve this problem.
