City may sue Foss and hike golf rates
Apparently not everyone in the City of Clinton’s leadership is happy with the compromise rate agreed to by directors of the Foss Master Conservancy District for water purchased above the regular assessments that member cities are obligated to take.
One item on the agenda for Tuesday’s next meeting of the Clinton Public Works Authority is “discussion with legal counsel regarding pending litigation regarding Foss Master Conservancy District including an executive session as authorized by 25 O.S. ss 307B(4).”
There’s no further explanation of what the pending litigation might be about, but some members of the City Council – all of whom double as trustees of the Public Works Authority – were very unhappy over the Foss district’s budget for 2014 that was adopted Jan. 13. It contained rate increases of more than 20 percent not only for water sold as part of each city’s regular assessment but also for overages bought by the cities above their assessments.
