McGregor Water and Streets

McGregor Residents have questions about “the Cost of their City Utilities” and “the Condition of their Streets.”

This Group is focused on identifying the City Water and Street Issues, documenting the current situation, and offering Potential Solutions that feature our Residents.

As a Group:

What do we want?
To “Lower the Cost of Living” for the Residents of McGregor.

How do we get it?
We refocus “City Spending” and “City Spending Priorities.”

WATER — [Our first Group effort] — We are organizing a Petition to the Mayor and City Council to “Reduce the Water and Waste Water Demand Fee Rates” which will lower the cost for water no matter the Usage. [Refer to our Member Post for the current details].

STREETS — [we are organizing this topic as our second “of many” future efforts] — We are collecting an album of Street images that document the current Street status. Our Third World Streets are lowering the Property values and we are organizing potential solutions that refocus City Priorities and City Spending. [Member Posts have details].

Our intent is to Lower the Cost of City Government and reestablish the idea that the Government should be a “cost savings” organization.

If you have questions about “our group” please ask any of our members for answers.

Members and Previewers

  • We are not an adversarial organization.
  • The City and the City Employees are not “the enemy.”

Remember – Our Petition is asking the Mayor and City Council for their attention and their assistance. [Be appropriately nice where possible].

McGregor uses a very complex and highly detailed method to calculate Your Utility Bill.

To reduce the Cost of Water [initially], we compared the cost of water to other areas like McGregor.  We tried many combinations until we realized one of the things that affect the cost of Water and Waste Water is the “Double Demand Fees” the City imposes.

If we reduce the Water and Waste Water Demand Fees to a Flat Rate of $30.00 that will Save each household $515.00+ Annually.

We are petitioning the Council to consider our Fee reduction idea and implement it in the 2021 City Budget.

Let’s lower the cost for City Government.
