Wisconsin: Petitions handed in for Waterford Sanitary District President recall
Waterford sanitary district president Bill Gerard is facing recall petitions. The reported chief backer of the recall is a former sanitary district president in the early ‘80s, said that he has decided to run against Gerard. Petitioners need 531 signatures and apparently have collected 729.
The issue is alleged increased costs of sewage service and paying for grinder pumps: “Multiple attempts to make grinder pump users pay for WSD (Waterford Sanitary District) system infrastructure and miscellaneous WSD financial reasons.” Gerard claims the issue is a lawsuit over a 99 year lease to a building in the district.
