    New fees for new homes? What new homes? And remember that all these fees will be passed on to us, the consumer, the little guy that can't afford a big accounting firm to hide their income. This is just another way of taking the money right out of our pockets. And stay tuned, there's much, much more to come.

    Should have done this a long time ago and we would not be in the hole were in - let the developers pay for the new roads/schools/etc... not those who have lived here forever!

    When there's a recession, government charges more, private enterprise charges less.

    Connection fee for trash huh. I'm serious considering dropping my trash service. I have a wake county dump a 1/2 mile down the road which I don't mide going to. I don't live in Raleigh, but I live in a town that is under King Meekers control when it comes to this stuff.
