Oligarchy: Thanks for Nothing


Just got off the phone with the City of Anna. Apparently, if I want Water Service, I am required to also pay for Trash Service. Its a mandatory charge whether I want it or not. There is no way to have Water without also having Trash. The explanation was, "Minimum billing" which makes about as much sense as anything else the City has done to me lately. I suppose I should fall to my knees and thank the City didn't mandate I must pay for a host of other services I don't require, because at this point it sounds like they could certainly do so.

I took a look at the list of City Council members and know most of them personally. I know them to be honest, hard-working, honorable men. But I guess what the City wants, the City gets. And right now, the City wants to wring me out like a golden dishrag.
