I just drafted a letter to our city mayor. About a month ago, the homeowners of our village had a meeting with the city engineers, city admin, DPWH engineer and contractor regarding the tapping of a newly constructed drainage system into our village's culvert. The connection would definitely bring about a deluge of microbes and ditch water into the low-laying streets in our area. After the meeting it was agreed upon that the new drainage system will not be tapped into ours. Yes! Or so we thought. After two weeks, the contractor still connected the new drainage into ours. Guess what? The filthy water coming from the ditches has stagnated in our streets! I just hope our mayor would finally do something about our predicament as the health and welfare of the residents in our village are at stake.
