Push for additional Seneca seats at JRSA

At the request of the city administrator, the Seneca mayor will pick up the phone this morning and formally request that the member-customers of the Joint Regional Sewer Authority grant the city additional seats at the JRSA commission board. And once Mayor Dan Alexander makes the request, the matter is to be added to the agenda for next week’s annual meeting of the JRSA municipal members. It’s believed that based on what flows through the meter and its share of treatment costs, Seneca will seek two additional seats at the table. How this might play with the other municipal members could reveal itself tonight when Walhalla utilities superintendent Scott Parris meets with his mayor and city council.
