Will Augusta supervisors mandate controversial sewer hook-ups?

A public hearing will be held tonight to hear feedback from citizens concerning a controversial ordinance proposal that could force homeowners in Greenville to connect to a county sewer line even if they object.

With 114 houses involved, the county is looking for 100% participation and is considering mandating that all must hook up to help pay for the $3 million sewer line. Homeowners would be responsible for the hookup costs that could be in the thousands of dollars, and then must pay a monthly fee. It was previously discussed that those who did not actively use the system would also be responsible for paying a monthly fee.

Tonight's meeting is very important for any who are concerned about eminent domain or Agenda 21 issues involving overreaching government telling citizens what they can and cannot do with their property.

The meeting will be held at the Augusta County Government Center in Verona (located behind Citizens Bank) in the public hearing room at 7:00 pm.
