If you haven't checked out the www.savethe tar.org website yet, PLEASE do. It's got lots of excellent information on it. One of the best tools is from UNC, the UNC’s Water and Wastewater Rates Dashboard.
Play with it a bit and you will realize that Creedmoor water and sewer customers pay the second highest rates in the entire state of North Carolina.
Compare these numbers for a water and sewer bill of 5,000 gallons a month
$131.57 Creedmoor Customer
$84.80 SGWASA Customer
That's a $47 a month overcharge current Creedmoor users pay for water and sewer. That's almost $600 a year more that Creedmoor upcharges to profit from Creedmoor's citizens.
On last year's, 2011 budget, those overcharges amounted to $721,612 that Creedmoor used for general purposes. A cash cow for The 'Ommissioners, a slush fund; a stealth tax courtesy of The 'Ommissioners for the citizens of Creedmoor.
Creedmoor has the second highest water and sewer rates in the state and Creedmoor citizens pay the highest tax rate in Warren, Vance, Granville and Person Counties.
If The 'Ommissioners have their way and build the sewage plant on Hester Road, Creedmoor can be number one in both!
