Should city and county combine water/sewage systems?

comp plan

       Clayton Preble, standing, and Roger Schultz, seated to his right, lead a discussion on merging some operations of the county and city at a planning meeting last week.

       Should the city of Jasper and Pickens County combine resources to form a joint water/sewage authority? 

That question was the key discussion point of the Comprehensive Planning Session December 12th at the County Admin building. The comprehensive plan update is required in all Georgia counties on a regular basis. Pickens is expected to begin drafting a revision to the current plan early next year to submit to the state by summer of 2018.

Water and Sewage should be a start, but over time, should be a combined government that enables efficiency in delivery of services and general leadership countywide. We are TOO SMALL and TOO POOR to have seperate government entities providing services.

the county applies higher minimum fees and ridiculous late charges someone told me it is 45.00 so all in the city should be against any merging of the two
