Englewood Taking Advantage of Seniors on Water Bills


Posted on July 5th, 2011

"Englewood is taking advantage of seniors on their water bills. We should not be treating our seniors with this disrespect.

About 2,000 of Englewood’s residential households are still on a flat-rate water system. These senior households, usually consisting of one or two people, pay the equivalent of 4.5 people’s water.  The Utility Department admitted some of our seniors are charged for 20,000 gallons of water per month, which is twice the reported Englewood average of 9,400 gallons, and forces these seniors to pay about $800 annually versus the average usage cost of about $400. 

My metered water bill for a household of two people and a standard lot is around $130 annually, but if I were on a flat-rate account I would be forced to pay around $290.  The utility department and city council have stated multiple times that most flat-rate households are being charged for way more water than they use...."

Cushing Park Could be Saying Bye-Bye!

Posted on June 7th, 2011

"Although city council seems to have done little or nothing to notify residents, they have been planning for years to pave the wetland riparian area at the west side of Cushing Park, according to their comments at last night's council meeting.

Do they really think this is what Englewood, Colorado citizens want? If you are an Englewood citizen, is this what you want? Do they care what you want? Have they asked you?...."

Rezoning Via Moratorium?  Wait Isn't That Illegal?

Posted on June 20th, 2011

Hope you don't own a office, duplex, or apartment building or weren't under contract to purchase a single-family home with the intent to renovate it into an office, duplex, tri-plex or apartment in the 3200 to 3400 blocks of South Grant Street or the 3200 block of South Sherman Street.  If so, you currently will be unable to get permits for renovations or upkeep because, without notice to affected citizens, the current City Council voted 4-3  to approve a moratorium on the following:

"Recommendation from the Community Development Department to adopt a resolution recommending a moratorium on the issuance of certain building permits in the MU-R-3-B zoned portions of the 3200, 3300 and 3400 blocks of South Grant Street and the 3200 block of South Sherman Street.  Staff Source: Alan White, Director of Community Development Department..."

And to think... I was under the impression that there was a "zoning process" we had in place for such things?  Oh wait we do.

**Note** 3 of the 4 council members in favor of this moratorium will be running for re-election this November 2011, current at-large council members Bob McCaslin and Jill Wilson (has yet to confirm her running), and District 3's Randy Penn.
