Foss water hike comes under fire at council meeting

“They’re punishing the people of Clinton, Hobart, Cordell and Bessie,” he said, suggesting that the names and phone numbers of the Foss board members be published so they can answer to the people. He also said, “They ought to be a little more responsive to our city manager.”
