We do not need it, we do not want it, and we cannot afford it without doubling household water costs and taking on a massive amount of debt.We have a water supply that works and is not particularly expensive. Spending $400 million to replace the existing water supply with a recycled/re-used supply was not supported by any neighborhood association when you, against all of our objections, recently approved this plan.If you want to tax us further [note: we already have the highest state & local taxes in the country], please tax us to: provide masks and other essential equipment for our first responders; pay for HVAC in every school classroom; actually build affordable housing. But please, do not spend $$$ we do not have on something we neither need nor want. Nothing “sustainable” about that.Jeremy K.
