Jeff Gahan and Mike Moore have something in common, as both mayors inhabit the chieftains's chair at their own sewer boards, self-appointed and salaried.
New Hope in Jeffersonville asks for city sewer credits, by Elizabeth Beilman (Hanson's Folly)
JEFFERSONVILLE — A local nonprofit organization building affordable housing is asking Jeffersonville officials to credit its sewer fees.
New Hope Services Inc., which is in the middle of building M. Fine on Spring Street, made its request at a city sewer board meeting on Thursday.
Moore is having none of it.
But Mayor Mike Moore, president of the sewer board, didn't seem open to changing the terms of the agreement.
"I wouldn't expect because of policy changes, months after you and I have reached an agreement, I'm not going to go back and start changing all old contracts because the city's changed directions," Moore said.
Surely Moore would have benefited from texting Gahan for the wording of Dear Leader's 1st Commandment of sewage-based subsidies:
NO SEWER TAP-IN WAIVERS EVER UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES UNLESS IT'S LUXURY HOUSING, AWARDED TO DEVELOPERS WHO DON'T NEED THEM.
Lesson: Focus on luxury at the expense of affordability, Mike.
You're a Republican, for chrissakes, and can do this sort of thing without being a hypocrite.
