Interesting story about the luxury senior housing complex in Melville ["Sewer spat," News, Dec. 10].

The residents chose to buy and live there and knew of the charges for their sewage treatment plant. Now they want the county to take over because of the expense of operating it. What a great idea!

If it works for them, maybe I can have my cesspool taken over by the county and have everyone share in the annual cost of having it pumped out. It could be the county's 27th sewer district!
