ESCALATING FEES ARE DRIVING RESIDENTS AWAY

I will admit I don't know all of the details, but I read in The News that the Village of Springville Board voted to increase the water rates for owners of "vacant" lots by $4.24. This, coupled with the sorry state of the City of Buffalo's fiscal disaster, reminds me why I abandoned Buffalo and Erie County 10 years ago. It also reminds me why so many of my friends and my own son have left this state in the pursuit of a better life.
