We've all seen the TV shows. A cunning detective sets out to solve case after case in a sleepy town full of secrets.
We already know that the cute shopfronts and handpainted houses are always a front for human drama, corruption, and tragedy. And it's not just confined to the small towns and a rural haunts on television. The drama is real.
The city attempted to seize land to lay piping down without paying for it or permission, force homeowners to maintain it, and then force the homeowners to pay for the work and a large hook up fee.
It caused a huge ruckus and the city was forced to go through the proper procedures to buy the land, lay the pipes, and fix and pay for any damages caused by the pipe laying.
You see most folks in that area of town had septic tanks. The city wanted to charge more people for utilities so basically went around the voters to force the pipes through, claiming the people on the back of the properties wanted to be connected to the city.
