Letters: Crescent City sewer rates should be charged by usage

I agree that the sewer rate has to be raised to upgrade the plant so the city can grow ("Sessions explain rate hikes," Sept. 12). Have you been on Front Street when the tide is in and it is foggy? Wow, what a smell!

What I don't agree with is charging everyone a higher rate. My mother is 76 years young and lives on her own, on a fixed income. She should not have to pay as much as a family of 2 to 10 people.

You charge by water usage; you should have to pay by sewer usage. People should have to declare the number of people in the household and their income to determine what they pay.
