Deserve better

To the Editor:

It is a sad day when the city of Harvard can force a property owner to tap into water/sewer services at a cost of $20,000 and then blatantly ignore its own municipal code requiring maintenance of the water main/fire hydrant. The water line that services my property has been frozen since Feb. 21. The city itself has determined that it is on its side of the line. The city has ignored its own Municipal Code 13.06b, and by doing so has jeopardized the safety of its citizens and those who have invested in the city of Harvard.

We have paid our permit fees and monthly service fees and abided by the city code.

It is a sad day when a city ignores the codes/laws they have created. I ask Mayor Nolan, why should the citizens of Harvard abide by the codes/laws if the city itself does not?

Therefore, Mayor Nolan should step down. The citizens deserve better. Mayor Nolan is either unable or unwilling to fulfill the duties he was sworn to uphold. It truly is a sad day for the city of Harvard.
