RENO, Nev. (KRNV & -- The City of Reno is declaring a state of emergency due to weathered sewer pipes.

The City says they declared it so they can get construction contracts started, but it's unknown when they will begin construction on the pipes.

The City says this is a procedural situation so that they can begin the construction for new sewer pipes.

probably goes to the overpaid city manager's wallet. I agree, the city has been raising the cost of sewer services multiple times in the last few years. Subway, Port of Subs, roundtable probably get a lot of that money because those fearless city leaders all just get lunch and make poor financial decisions for this struggling city as a whole.

why as a home owner could i not declare a stateofemergency @my house? i had to pay 22k for my new sewer line because it went across the st. & according to the CITY and roto rooter/lakeside diggers that is my property.SO now i guess i own the street. 3x these yahoos came out to tear up my front yard. i say the city, like me a home owner should have to pay their own bill! HEY CITY call up rotor rooter/lakeside excavators they will do a fine job..... maybe u will be lucky & it will only take them once. pay your own sewer bill city of reno. I HAD 2.

What has Reno done with the money it collects from us for sewer services?? That's $106 PER quarter from everyone with a property...seems to me that's enough to avoid an emergency let alone rebuild it from scratch...and is in addition to property tax!! Rich Ribas
