    are sustained from the public purse.  In this particular instance, although the original plan was to have a private sewer and water system, they actually extended the public main and hooked into the public sewer, the garbage truck comes into the private drive and so does the U.S. mail.
    Perhaps when the pavement has to be replaced, the homeowners will spring for that. In other parts of the country, when subdivisions aren't built to public standards and rely on private utility services, the larger community provides no services, until wells get polluted and septic systems fail and then something has to be done in the name of public health. It's very wasteful of natural resources to demand that houses be built on lots that are large enough so the septic fields can be moved around. Some people think large lots preserve the forest canopy, but when new leach fields have to be installed, everything gets cleared and is kept clear, lest roots get into the lines.

      Sounds like your situation is very complex -- a perfect medium in which the lawyers can perform their thievery on behalf of their grasping clients.

      Good luck with your fight!

        offend owners. I did the research before hand and intended to contest the prevailing attitude.
        Also, there's the previous owner for whom an injustice needs to be avenged. She was cheated out of her dream of a little house on the marsh.
