so i don't think you have any room to complain about your $80 bill when you get all the fresh, clean, water you want for free. or are you just complaining to be a jerk.
i want the sewer fixed. i know a bunch of people that have drain problems because of the city's sewers. i just don't think we should pay for the clean-up on top of that.

so now it's all IDEMS fault? it sounds like the city should have sued dana. like you said they are the ones that started it. now it too late because dana holds no responsibility. if the city knew there was a problem, why did it get put off for so long? i put most of the blame on dana, but the city knew about it also. are you saying there is nothing the city can do when someone is polluting?
i don't mind paying for getting the sewer fixed, but when they raise your bill to pay for someone's screw-up, it seems hard to justify. do you think it will go back down when things are paid off? that's not how it works. so, what is the excuse for the high bills when things do get paid off?
Dana's bankrupcy prevents the city from suing the company for its wrongdoing. As I said before, bankrupcy of a company makes them a born-again virgin. They now are scot-free of any liability for their pollution. The state (IDEM) had the complete control of the site's fate, not Angola or the county. Univertical had an agreement with IDEM and Dana that also was washed out. The City was, unfortunately, not involved in anything until it was too late to do something. State government trumps local govt; bankrupcy trumps everything.
