Seneca applies for Additional Seats on OJRSA

Sister station WGOG reports that Seneca’s bid for additional seats on the Oconee Joint Regional Sewer Authority Board will be decided in the individual council chambers of its member-cities. What loomed as the potential for an open fight failed to materialize during the Authority’s annual meeting. As expected, Seneca attorney Michael Smith made the City’s request official. Seneca requested the authority board be re-apportioned to reflect its 63% share of the annual treatment costs.  While attendees discussed it amongst themselves as they left Seneca’s Gignilliat Center, there was no discussion on the floor.  That is in keeping with the agreement establishing the authority, indicating that the proper forum to consider Seneca’s request will be meetings of the municipal councils for the member-cities.
