Hearing for Triunfo rate hike

I am trying to build awareness of the proposed 2.5 percent increase for sewer service fees for Triunfo Sanitation District.

There will be a hearing in this regard at 5:15 p.m. Mon., May 21 at the Oak Park Library.

Residents may also protest the increase by mailing letters—no petitions or emails—one letter per address or parcel only. The information has been posted on Nextdoor and Facebook.

I contacted the county clerk of the board on May 4 and was advised that about 99 letters have been received. My personal research shows there about 12,200 residences. Therefore, 6,100 letters would be needed in order for this increase not to pass.

I am hoping to bring greater awareness to this matter.
