Pelham should not waste taxpayer money

Dear Editor,

After reading the Jan. 22 Pelham Reporter, I would ask that Pelham strongly consider the $8,500 septic system fix rather than spending 10 times that amount for a sewer connection. I recognize that would require changing the law to allow near-sewer septic users the option to not connect to the sewer — choices are a good thing for everyone. It is never wise to waste the taxpayer’s money.

Since it does not matter which pocket you pull the money out of, if Pelham spends the extra cash for a sewer connections, all park users will eventually pay for it via increased fees, including those that make no use of the ball parks, like the golf and tennis players.

Once again, it is never wise to waste the taxpayer’s money.
