The wastewater bond is a waste of money!

To ALL Genoa Township Democrats and Republicans against wasting public money.

Sign the petition.  Stop the waste of money for the wastewater pipeline bond. Help me defeat this bond.

A better, cheaper alternative exists.  Here are the numbers:

The Bond Numbers:
$300 a year or more: $4,300 total cost per household for the $6 million wastewater pipeline bond.
VS  the cheaper alternative:
$  240 a year for township provided soft water plus (for 1,000 homes in Northshore and Oakpoint Subs.)
$   88 a year for Oak Point wastewater plant improvements.
$ 328 subtotal
   -60 a  year savings in salt costs, and  you NEVER have to BUY SALT AGAIN!
$268 TOTAL a year - $32 a year cheaper than the wasteful pipeline bond.
for household on wells: (400 households in the Tri-lakes area)
$ 240 a year for potassium chloride ($20 a bag at Costco).
$   88 a year for Oak Point wastewater plant improvements.
$     6 a year for inspection for salt at grinder pumps.
$ 334 a year subtotal.
    -60 a year savings in salt cost - you are buying potassium instead
$ 274 TOTAL a year - $26 a year cheaper than the wasteful pipeline bond.

In addition to the cost savings, we get getter water in the deal. No unhealthy salt in our household water or in the Oak Point wastewater plant effluent.

All democrats and all Republicans against wasting money help me defeat this bond buy signing and circulating in Genoa Township the petition so that a vote of the people will be required to issue this bond.  We need 1,600 signatures or 10% of the registered voters on the petition to STOP THIS BOND!
