Letters: Crescent City sewer rates should be charged by usage

archive_import

I agree that the sewer rate has to be raised to upgrade the plant so the city can grow (andquot;Sessions explain rate hikes,andquot; 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.
