The sewer project is the second largest capital request in the history of Ridgefield. This vote will impact Ridgefielders, their property values, taxes and how our town grows over the next 20 years. Given the enormity of this, the selectmen, Board of Finance and WPCA approvals, wouldn’t a taxpayer think the current Phase 2 documents and presentations posted on the town site would answer the following questions? They do not as of Sept. 30.
Why is the Board of Selectmen and WPCA stating the sewer system cost is $48,000,000 when the actual cost is $62,800,000 when you add in $14,300,00 in interest? Why in all the published Phase 2 material is there no cost breakout available on the $48,000,000?
