WPCA board approves budget


STAMFORD — The Water Pollution Control Authority board of directors voted Wednesday to approve a $26 million operating budget for next fiscal year.

The budget forecasts a 1.68 percent increase in revenue and 2.4 percent increase in expenses for fiscal year 2014-15. The WPCA anticipates collecting $19.2 million in sewer use fees from its users, representing a 5.1 percent increase.

The budget will now go before Stamford’s Board of Finance and Board of Representatives for consideration.

    It needs to vote itself out of existence and be replaced with a more responsible and responsive agency. Its collection system should – like those in many neighboring communities – qualify WPCA fees as local taxes, enabling homeowners to claim them on their income tax returns.
