from the meeting.
Duszak was the primary author of the plan that he and the commissioners believe to be the answer to residents' cries that the existing rate structure is unfair.
Starting on July 1, businesses, Lower Moreland High School and approximately 400 households will be charged a flat rate or $104 per quarter for sewer use, plus an additional $1.76 per 1,000 gallons of water used.
Formerly, residents and businesses were charged a minimum of $61 per quarter, plus $7.20 per 1,000 gallons of water used after the first 5,000 gallons.
But in his boldest attack on the board to date, Grandinetti accused board members, Duszak, and everyone involved in figuring out the newly passed sewer rate of "deliberate falsification of records" to conceal that the board borrowed more money than it needed.
He has vowed to have the matter investigated.
Grandinetti said the board had borrowed $1.3 million too much for the construction of the new sewer plant serving District 4.
He said the board overestimated the costs of the project by $800,000 at the same time it underestimated by $500,000 the amount of interest the authority would earn from loans for the project waiting to be spent.
The net result, he said, was that residents in Sewer District 4 are getting charged $100 per year too much under the new plan - primarily to pay back the $1.3 million the authority didn't need in the first place.
In an another matter, the commissioners told the managers of Forest Hill Cemetery that they would have to get permission from the Lower Moreland Zoning Hearing Board to erect a 240-foot-long replica of Washington's Vietnam Veterans Memorial on their property July 3 to July 7.
That meeting will be held at 7:30 p.m. May 8 in the township building at 640 Red Lion Rd.
Opposed to the plan to allow the monument were two residents whose Roy Lane homes abut the cemetery.
