Elkhart property owner says she can't afford city services

My household does not receive any city services. I don’t have the extra money for trash/water/sewer service. If you are going to force Area 7 into the city, why can’t you pay for the water and sewer lines?

I just watched the news, and I agree with Randy Wilson of M-3 & Associates, who opposes annexation by Elkhart.

The city controller made the comment that people may already be receiving city services. If that is the case, charge them for it!

It’s my understanding this will cost thousands of dollars and homeowners and business owners will also have to pay a contractor to hook up from the road to our structures. Isn’t there anyone who can help us?

I sure don’t feel my properties will go up in value, but my taxes sure will.
