Dozens attend Hugo council meeting with more water concerns

“Do we feel good with the job we’re doing? Had we not got elected we would still be drinking the water from Severn Trent, we would still be having the same issues as we’ve had before. The difference is we’ve brought it to light. It does cost money to do this. My bill went up just like yours did. There are certain things that we have to do to make this city work and I do feel like we’re doing a good job. I do feel like we’re doing our best. It may feel like we’re falling short of glory now, but in the end, we’ll be in a spot where we feel prosperous.”  Councilman Ernest McCarty

HUGO –– Tuesday’s city council meeting met a packed house, as dozens of Hugo water consumers voiced their questions and concerns regarding the quality of the water and the recent spike in the water bill rates.
Jennifer Smith, creator of the “Say No More to Hugo Water” Facebook page commanding a call for action regarding the Hugo water municipality, addressed the council on behalf of the citizens, inquiring as to why her bill went from $70 a month to $376. But Smith was not the only one, and several others spoke to the same issue.
