THE UNIONS DONT MAKE A CITY OR ANYTHING ELSE SAFE-IT IS THE PEOPLE THAT DO.UNIONS ARE GOOD FOR CRYING AND COMPLAINING WHEN THINGS DONT GO THEIR WAY,AND ALSO VERY GOOD AT GETTING UNION MEMBERS TO TELL US ALL WHERE WE WOULD BE WITHOUT THEM.THE CAPE NEEDS TO GET RID OF THE UNIONS AND THERE CRY BABY MEMBERS ABOUT NOT GETTING A RAISE OR HAVING TO PAY A LITTLE FOR HEALTH CARE WHEN PEOPLE ARE LOSING THERE JOBS AND THEN HOMES.

Richard Perry wrote "I can honestly say I have never heard of anyone having to pay $20,000-plus for water and sewer hook up other than the poor expansion homeowners here in Cape Coral."

- Well, *I* have. And it's *very* common. Most communities throughout the country completed their water and sewer street projects decades ago, and the cost to lay those water and sewer pipes is *much* more expensive now than it was say 20 years ago. The contractors have to be paid when they do the work, and even when the up-front money is through bonding or other means of financing, those bonds or loans have to be paid somehow - usually by these kinds of assessments. And the actual "hook-up" charge is usually paid *in addition* to the assessments.

Unions make us safe? You smokin’ dope or sumthun? Police do not prevent crime, firemen do not prevent fires, utility workers do not prevent water main breaks, you might as well state that TV weathermen prevent hurricanes, pothead.

You really don't understand how it works, huh? The law says the sewer line must be placed a certain distance away from potable water, so that places the sewer near the middle of the road. I would think with a computer you would learn about stuff before you make ignorant comments.
