Refusal of sewer study unbelievable

The disbelief is overwhelming. Not only did our BOS refuse to recognize the value of the sewer study proposed by staff and supported by Sue Horne, the explanations offered for their decision (or was it indecision?) just don’t make sense.

A few years ago, within the General Plan Update process, the idea for considering a possible need for future sewage treatment facilities was placed (albeit briefly) on the table. The idea got about as much support then as it has in recent weeks.

Having heretofore believed that we had, at long last, produced a BOS capable of managing our public affairs on a higher plane than their predecessors I am forced to re-think my position in that respect.

Your editorial of Dec. 24 (“The supervisors’ decision on sewer study raises questions”) presents my own views perfectly. I wonder who the editorial writer is. Perhaps he or she would like to make themselves available during the next election.
