Taxpayer takes issue with hauling effluent to Hartland

Why am I not able to pay for your sewers?

While it has happened again, just like three years ago. I got my septic tank pumped and on the bill there is a $0.27 a gallon charge for effluent disposal ($202.50  plus HST) to haul this dump it in Langford. I like to shop local.

I would like to know why this effluent can’t be dumped in Sooke and the money, we in Otter Point, Shirley and East Sooke pay to Langford cannot stay in the community?

If I was on the Sooke sewer system, I would be asking council some questions about this.

Bud Gibbons.
