To The Editor:
I want to encourage Waitsfield voters to approve the water system on November 4. Clean and plentiful water is needed by many individual homeowners as well as businesses. The fire hydrant system is for the use of the whole town. There will be no increase in taxes for any resident for the water or hydrant system. If you don't connect to the system it will cost you nothing.
There is much talk in Congress for more economic stimulus spending on infrastructure. Because most of our planning and design has been completed and we could start construction next summer Waitsfield will be in an excellent position to take advantage of these grants. This would further reduce the cost to users who connect. Let's not miss this opportunity.
Please vote yes for water next Tuesday and help your neighbors get the water they need.
