Dixon's Independent Voice

Sewer Rate Hike Protest Fills Council Chambers

By Dave Scholl, Categories: City+School, Business, Local Life, News

The Dixon City Council chamber was packed almost to capacity this past Tuesday, as about 90 Dixon residents attended to protest the recent doubling of Sewer Fees and the council’s refusal to allow the issue to go on the ballot in the November General Election. The protest rally caught members of the council by surprise, as Mayor Batchelor and Council members Steve Bird and Jerry Casteñon snuck by the crowd and into the chambers - where the doors were closed until shortly before the meeting was to begin. Vice-Mayor Thom Bogue, however, joined the crowd and encouraged their participation. The rally continued to grow in size both outside the chambers, and once inside. An obviously nervous mayor Batchelor - whose voice was quivering and body language should discomfort and annoyance - announced at the beginning of the Public Comments of Items Not on the Agenda, that speakers would be limited to a maximum of five minutes.
