TOM PACK: (R)

I agree that the county and towns need to continue to work together on water.  I understand that their water systems are important to the towns and that whatever we do needs to be fair to all.

The county has a sewer treatment plant that serves the middle school, Department of Social Services and the old Woodland Mills building.  The county contracts to have someone from outside the county monitor and service the treatment plant.

I think that we should try and work with the towns to provide personnel to monitor and service the treatment plant if it works for them to keep the money in the county and help the towns cover their costs associated with running their systems.

There are more areas but the main objective is to save the citizens money and be fair with all involved.
