Clark-Edgar Rural Water District – (ECWd) –
At tonight’s regular meeting, the Clark-Edgar Rural Water District voted to shut off the water meters located at the State Police Weigh Station on I-70, and also the Lincoln Trail State Park Picnic Area – effective immediately.
This is due to the state’s nonpayment of water bills. Good for them!
In other business, I asked them again to develop a plan to connect water to those that have paid their connection fees and not yet been connected.
I also asked them to justify the taking of “tap-on” fees when the statute does not give them the power to do so.
I questioned the auditor’s “cut and paste” from previous audits, evidenced in the fact that this year’s audit still had the water district board as being appointed by Clark and Edgar Counties – when they are actually elected by the people.
I asked for an affirmation or denial of their intended use of the monies collected from “future” customers.
