Letter to the Editor: Restore senior discounts

We hear now that Mayor Emanuel of Chicago is proposing a discount in the water bills for senior residents in single dwelling homes there.

The residents already are forgiven on their sewer tax, which is half their bi-monthly bill. The village of Morton Grove previously gave such discounts to senior residents until they considered the small income they were missing, so they revoked it.

While the village spends over a million for contaminated land at the former site of Maxwell’s Restaurant, surely they can find alternate ways to prop up the general fund that supports the village expenses.
