If you're a ratepayer within the Metropolitan Sewer District, the answer is both obvious and unpleasant. Sewer rates are projected to continue increasing throughout the foreseeable future.
As a result of improvements mandated under the federal consent decree with the Ohio EPA, ratepayers bear the burden of compliance with the Clean Water Act. Hamilton County Commissioner Chris Monzel will explain what is required of our community to meet our obligations, why is it so expensive and what strong County leadership can do to hold down the cost.

Over the past five years, Hamilton County Commissioner, Chris Monzel, challenged every department in county government to deliver essential public services while holding a tight rein on costs. As President of the Board, Chris Monzel has been the driving force for right-sizing government while keeping taxes low and improving our economy by cutting the red tape for businesses planning to expand or relocate in Hamilton County.
Chris' growth as a public servant predates services in either city or county government. He confronted challenging societal problems by volunteering in the communities in which he lived.
He blends experience in both public and private sector. As both an engineer and manager at GE, Chris has achieved private sector results by improving the delivery and cost of repair technology services while managing a substantial budget. These results translate to providing cost efficient government to the citizens of Hamilton County.
Chris, his wife Jana, and their children currently reside in Glendale. Chris and Jana are both deeply involved in their children's activities. They believe that providing a stable family environment steeped in faith and tradition is their primary responsibility.
