No scam, and their pretty good at maintaining the system, had some back-ups over the years, fixed same day unless it was on the weekend.

Unheard of here in St. Thomas, "good at maintaining" ..isn`t something we are accustomed to!
Good for you, there IS hope!
Is the service so good BC Chucks husband was awarded the sewer contract with his sewage company W/O employees or equipment?
Or is it that good as it is, & if so, why did Chucky`s hubby get the contract?
Was that sewage on the sidewalks of STX? Or was that Bert Byan mouthing off?

I received my tax bill this week also for 2006. I thought I had already paid it last year. I guess I had paid for 2005 despite not closing on the property until Sept of 2005. . . I remember someone talking about the importance of saving all the paperwork in a prior post. I found my cancelled check but no paperwork with it. By the way, my taxes are lower for 2006 than what I paid before (which I guess was for 2005). New goal - save all paperwork and write on the check what year payment is for).

don't worry, you didn't pay your 2006 tax bill last year, that is the bill that just came out. last year the 2005 bill was issued. you probably also got a credit at your closing for part of the 2005 tax bill.
