“Wash Me” Owner Seeks Sewer Rate Adjustment

Local businessman Shon Schroefel just got tired of waiting for a response from the City of Buffalo.

Schroefel appeared before the city council on Tuesday to again protest the unfairness of the city sewer rates…


According to Schroefel, residential sewer rates are “capped” at $20.60 but commercial rates are based on gallons of water used.

Obviously, a car wash uses water and his sewer rates is 3x his water rate and it simply impedes his ability to expand his business…

Mayor Mike Johnson assured Schroefel that the council will have a response to his concern at its next meeting on May 16th.
