Chabot June 3rd Meeting

On June 3rd US Congressman Steve Chabot met at CUFA’s offices to discuss our concerns about foreclosures, high sewer bills and sewerage overflows.

On Tuesday, CUFA met with Representative Steve Chabot in South Cumminsville to present information about the issues that impact our lives. Local leaders addressed issues surrounding the Metropolitan Sewer District such as sewerage overflows in our basements and the resulting increasing sewer bills. We also brought up CUFA’s local win with the Vacant Foreclosed Property Ordinance and the need to continue providing relief to homeowners in order to prevent foreclosures.

As a result of our meeting, Rep. Chabot committed to:

  1. Send a letter to Mel Watt, Director of the Federal Housing Finance Agency, supporting principal reduction in order to end the foreclosure crisis
  2. Include CUFA’s suggestions to hire local workers to clean up Hamilton County’s Combined Sewer Overflows (CSOs)

Rep. Chabot is co-author of HR2707 which seeks to reduce the cost of cleaning up CSOs by implementing local solutions. We are glad to hear that his proposed legislation should bring down our sewer bills.

Thank you to all who attended or spoke! Check out more pictures from the meeting on our Facebook page.
