  1. So let me understand something about this city meeting. It’s about the water and sewer rates which ARE going up again. Why have this meeting. It’s utterly useless. We have no say or powers to stop it. No power to lower it. Oh ya by the way when was the last time it went down or stayed the same. NEVER! The MWRA is like a mafia fiefdom (you must pay the Vig or its 2 in the hat). Welcome to Somerville come on in for (our motto) a beer and a beat’n.
