Our view: City officials should meet soon with the county so the interconnect can move forward
Tuesday’s BOCC meeting revealed a frustrating and unnecessary communication gap between city and county staff, the result of which could leave some businesses and residents without access to city and county water services. During the meeting, County Attorney Donald Conn informed the board that, despite efforts made by staff to contact City Attorney T.J. Wohl and Interim City Administrator Tom Slaughter to set up a meeting to discuss boundary lines, the city had yet to make any attempt to respond.
It’s a head-scratching move for sure, and time is running out for an agreement to be approved. The county is up against a key Jan. 28 deadline regarding utility funding for the U.S. 17 road expansion, and although it can move forward without the city, it would prefer not to.
