    Amen to that. Perhaps it's also time to delay constructionof the unneeded and unnecessary water treatment plant since Lodi will continue small commercial devlopment and that gigantic housing markett that now will never come to Lodi that will require the unneeded and unnecessary water from that plant, and will save taxpayers of Lodi much needed funding for the replacement of the infrastructure of old Lodi that has been long neglected and rather spent on building this unneeded and unnecessary water treatment plant. Install water meters on all wells, commercial, industrial and residential and you'd generate more funds than you'd know what to do with and force the water wasters to either pay up like everyone else or only use what they really need.

    Jerry stated...that's just wrong...

    Very well said Jerry!
    Taxes are very high and hit us hard . The tax many times is used for things we do not approve of. We lose our sense of freedom I think.

    Let me see, for the rest of my life... I pay taxes on what I earn.. then I pay taxes to spend it.. then I pay another tax so I can Die.. or rather my relatives will have to if I don't put aside some money... just so a bunch of Government Employees can have my money for their health benefits and retirement.. this after they make me stand in long lines all my life.... that's just wrong...
