County waits on cities to act on water authority

-A A +A

Vote in the Citizen's online poll on water authority

By Lou Elliott Jones, Editor

Once again Levy County has put off taking any action on joining any government utility authority until all of the municipalities reply to Chiefland Mayor Teal Pomeroy's proposal that the county form one of its own.

The Levy County Board of Commissioners met Tuesday and one of the items on the agenda was Pomeroy's letter to the other seven cities in the county to form a countywide water authority.

 While the commission did not discuss it, they also received a letter from Fanning Springs Mayor Cheryl Nekola and City Commission Chair Whitney “Stoney” Smith.

Several weeks ago the Nature Coast Regional Water Authority approached the county about joining. The NCRWA is composed of the municipalities of Fanning Springs, which is in Levy County, Cross City in Dixie County, Trenton and Bell in Gilchrist County, and Dixie and Gilchrist counties.

In their letter, Nekola and Smith said forming a Levy County authority would be “like reinventing the wheel and counterproductive. The time, tax money, and support greatly outweigh the existing opportunity you have to join with your most northerly city in the county.”
