County Officials Say Wastewater Plan is for Regional Entity to Make Town by Town Decision
During its meeting on May 23, County Commissioners defended the idea of a regional authority for wastewater solution decision making.
While the debate is still out on what entity will be controlling - or overseeing - the process to find wastewater solution for the Cape, County Commissioners defended their idea for a regional wastewater board.
"At their May 23 meeting, County Commissioners Chair Mary Pat Flynn of Falmouth and Commissioner Sheila Lyons of Wellfleet said that the approach advocated by the county is not for a regional authority dictating to individual towns, but an entity that can facilitate town-by-town decision making by providing information and technical resources to support low-cost decisions," according to a The Barnstable Patriot report.
According to the Patriot, there will be a public hearing on wastewater costs hosted by the Cape Cod Water Protection Collaborative, begins at 6 pm, May 31 at Harwich Town Hall.
