Westminster to decide the question

January 29, 2013

Westminster’s mayor and council are apt to be the ones to decide whether to approve Seneca’s request for additional seats on the Joint Regional Sewer Authority, according to one JRSA commissioner who spoke to 96.3/WGOG NEWS. Last week Walhalla City Council voted down Seneca’s request and that action, the commissioner said, leaves the matter up to the JRSA’s third-member city, Westminster. City Administrator David Smith said today he likely will place the matter on the council’s agenda for its February meeting, planned for Tuesday, February 19. When asked what his recommendation will be, Smith said he’s aware of Walhalla Mayor Danny Edwards’ statement in which the mayor said, “The beauty of the system that we have, as I see it, is that no one municipality has control….We are, for lack of a better word, forced to work together….I would not think it be fair for Walhalla or Westminster to ask for the votes to control the board.” Smith said Edwards made a good point.
