City should foot bill for waterline repairs
The city of Niles sewer system is 80 to 100 years old and in desperate need of repair. The system was bought and paid for by the taxpayers of Niles.
When there is a break in the line in the street, the city wants the homeowner to repair it, costing $6,000 and up. With the economy in Niles, very few residents can afford this costly repair.
Seems like the politics is the same as always in the city.
