ALCOSAN: Councilman invites community to ‘unite to fight this injustice’

-Letter to the Editor-

The Borough of McKees Rocks has been working hard to increase its base, improve and expand municipal services provided and make McKees Rocks a better place to live, work, play and worship. Thanks to a new development and better management, the borough has been able to improve its credit rating (and reduce its financing costs) and generate additional revenue without increasing taxes.

ALCOSAN acquiring the former Crivelli Chevrolet property and removing a $2.86 million property from the tax rolls cancels out our efforts and is unacceptable. They (ALCOSAN) are a public authority serving 83 municipalities, and our small, economically challenged McKees Rocks should not have to bear a disproportionate share of the cost for the sewer authority to implement its Wet Weather Plan (especially when they have other options).

Everyone in the Sto-Rox community should be outraged by their disregard for our town.

Time for all “Rocks” residents, businesses, nonprofits and religious organizations to unite to fight this injustice!

—Chaz Maritz, McKees Rocks councilman and V.F.W. Post 418 commander
