Nearly Half of Detroit Water Customers Can’t Pay Their Bill & The UN May Be Called In


Democrat run for half a century:

It’s a basic human right: water. But could the United Nations soon help the Detroit Water and Sewerage Department provide the service to struggling customers?

Water department spokeswoman Curtrise Garner says it’s a possibility – but for now, the water bills must be paid.

“We do have programs that do help those that are just totally in need; can’t afford it – but we also know that there are also people who can’t afford it would can not pay and we know this because, once we shut water off, the next day they are in paying the bill in full. So we do know that that has become a habit as well,” said Garner.

“At the DWAS Department – it’s not our goal to shut off water. We want people’s water on, just like they do; but you do have to pay for your water…That’s the bottom line.”

Garner said the reality is that nearly half of Detroit Water and Sewerage customers can’t pay their bills; and that has led activists to lobby the UN to step up and take action.

Nice work. They turned it into a third world country.

That being said, no way on Earth should the United Nations be involved in this. Nope.
