I read with interest the front-page article of the Gazette, “Town Restoring Water and Sewer Bylaws”. (8 March)

I fully support Elsie Fetterman and her position that no city resident should be responsible for the sole cost of repairing public infrastructure, in this case $18,800.

About 15 years ago, our family was hit with a similar expense when a sewer broke in front of our house. Despite proof that a third party was responsible for the damage to the pipe under the street, and despite the resulting damage to our residence, we ended up paying the full cost of repairing the sewer line. Our appeal to the city was dismissed out of hand, without explanation. We were told that our only recourse was to hire a lawyer.

It’s too late for justice in our case. It’s not too late for the city to do justice to Elsie Fetterman and establish a fair and transparent water and sewer repair process.
