Trying to Fight Unfunded Mandates? Go Directly to Jail.
Township Supervisors in Cromwell Township (Huntington County) are fighting a mandate from the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection to install a public sewer system. The supervisors claim such a system will cost their constituents too much (at least $70 per month), and most residents have no need for it.
As a reward for fighting to save taxpayers money, all three supervisors will be sent to jail, for a minimum three month sentence.
