Okay, so my town set up a sewer system, and everyone had to pay to have thier septic tank torn in and hooked up to the system. My brothers live in mothers house in town (she passed away 3 yrs ago, and they are raising my brothers). Well they have both been laid off and have not been able to afford the hook up fees that with the late fee they are trying to hit them with totals about $6400! The town forged a letter stating that the local health department was going to take them to court over this. They know that the letter is forged, because my brother took it to the local Health Department to try to get a grant and they said they never saw the letter, never wrote the letter. Can anyone give me advise on this?

Sounds fishy. Do you have a consumer reporter at the local news station? Take it to them and maybe they'll investigate and air a report. Also, do you have a representative on the city council? Report it to that representative. Really despicable, in times like these and your bothers both being laid off, they can't expect them to pay for this service nor can they force them to pay for something they just don't have the money for.
