Open letter to Chadds Ford Sewer Authority chairman

Dear Mr. Altman:

It is always a pleasure to be able to thank public servants when they provide exceptional service to the public. I attended your meeting on June 18, where you reduced the sewer rates for residential users of the Chadds Ford Township Sewer Authority system. I applaud your action and thank you for your dedication to the residents of Chadds Ford.

It is virtually unheard of for a governmental agency to reduce rates; you are a great example of what an informed, dedicated board can do. I also appreciate the detailed discussion the Board engaged in when making this decision, which revealed your decision was based on facts and data and that you understood the need to properly fund the Authority while at the same time keeping rates as low as possible.

I understand when the Turners Mill Wastewater Treatment plant was put into operation, the authority promised to review rates when the system had stabilized. The authority then was under Department of Environmental Protection orders that required significant spending. However, once these items were addressed, the authority ‘remembered’ its promise and took action to benefit Chadds Ford Township residents.

It is my intention to do the same, to take action to benefit the township and its residents, should the residents elect me as Township Supervisor on Nov. 5. Thank you again for setting an example of how government can serve the public.

Frank Murphy
Republican candidate for supervisor
