Can we send other bills to the city?

Re: Stormwater fee won’t cover costs: mayor, Oct. 5.

The politicians forced Goulbourn township to join the municipality of Ottawa. Now these undisciplined spendthrifts are imposing a charge for water and sewer infrastructure that are not used by those who have their own wells and septic systems. Does this mean those of us not using this infrastructure will be able to send our bills for well upkeep and septic cleansing to the city tax gurus? Are these politicians proposing to put these infrastructures into our properties?
