Homeowners in the Mountain High, Nottingham Square, Tillicum Village and Timber Ridge neighborhoods must pay 5-thousand dollars and more to put in new water lines.

 

Bob Speik has lived in Tillicum Village for twenty years.

 

He says this all started when the city took over its utility, formerly Juniper Utility that served these subdivisions.

 

"They're putting in new pipes and tearing up the streets. They just have to patch up the street and not return it to the pristine condition.  Seecondly, we can put them $5,143 now or $26 a month for the next thirty years.  The catch is we owe $9381, so that's on every house."

 

Speik says residents are looking at hiring an attorney to fight plans to collect the money in 2015.

 

They claim in order to enforce the homeowners agreement with the city, they need 80 percent of the residents to agree -- and they were never asked.

Help Puerto Rico

Most organizations are asking for cash, rather than supplies, so they can route help to where it’s needed most more quickly. Here are some of the largest groups with campaigns underway:
