Walhalla takes two sewer votes

January 23, 2013

When it comes to Joint Regional Sewer Authority policy, Walhalla takes the position that it’s better not to rock the boat. And last night, with one member absent, the city council voted to oppose Seneca’s request to allow that city additional seats on the authority board. Josh Holliday, chairman of the utilities committee, made the motion, which got a ringing endorsement from Mayor Danny Edwards. The mayor attended last week’s annual JRSA meeting, where Seneca made official its request. “I think you pretty much fell like I do,” Edwards said to his council. “Our system is not broken. Our cities need to work together,” he said. Seneca takes the position that, by virtue of its customers paying two-thirds the freight of treatment costs, it’s entitled to greater representation. City Council also voted to accept the new Walhalla High School as a sewer customer, with conditions. Those conditions weren’t specified during last night’s meeting.
