One year ago Kirk Ashburn started a petition against the Posey County Regional Sewer Districts plans to include his Wadesville neighborhood in their reconstruction plans.
"When they laid out the plan for it, they decided to include our subdivision even though we're the farthest away from the wastewater treatment plant," said Ashburn. "Our youngest house is 3 years old, our oldest house is 19 years old, our septic tanks and field beds are functioning perfectly fine."
According to Ashburn if the plan goes through those living in the neighborhood will have to pay one thousand dollars per year for a service they don't even need.
After expressing concern to the District he says no action was taken, so he decided to take matters into his own hands and lawyer up with Attorney Joshua Claybourn.
"We came to the conclusion that there was really an arbitrary reason to include them at all," said Claybourn. "In fact, we believe it's in order to sustain and prop up the system as a whole because they believe that subdivision can pay for everyone else that's going to be hooking up."
44News reached out to the Posey County Regional Sewer District for comment, at this time they have no remarks but will look into the concern.
After a year and over 40 residents signing the petition, Ashburn feels he's done all he can and is pleading with the district to do their part and consider their requests.
"That's ultimately the resolution we hope to see, that oak hill subdivision is not included in the Posey County Region Sewer District," said Claybourn.
