Since SGWASA’s creation in 2006, Creedmoor has refused to join and become a full-fledged “put up or shut up” member. Creedmoor insists its infrastructure must be bought by SGWASA. Creedmoor would not fold into the regional water authority because Creedmoor had more infrastructure than Stem or anybody else, so Creedmoor’s system had to be purchased!
Where does this “beggar your neighbor” negotiating point leave Creedmoor’s Citizens?
The Creedmoor infrastructure has been bought and paid for 1 time already by Creedmoor citizens through taxes, fees, and water and sewer bills.
Now let’s just pretend that The Creedmoor ‘Omissioners accept the coerced offer on the table (since last August) of $13.5 million from SGWASA for the infrastructure.
Who will have to pay off that $13.5 million purchase price for Creedmoor’s infrastructure?
Why ALL the SGWASA users of course, including the Citizens of Creedmoor. The ‘Ommissioners’ terrific negotiating skills will make Creedmoor folks pay twice for the infrastructure!
WHAT A DEAL! And that is one more reason...
Something Stinks in Creedmoor!
