WEST FARMINGTON, Ohio (WKBN) – West Farmington Mayor Shirley Mackintosh is reeling from a potential water rate hike in her county.
McIntosh voiced her dissatisfaction at the weekly county commissioner’s meeting. She says West Farmington Village Public Water System is a bulk water customer. This means the village maintains and operates its own distribution system for her 300-plus customers.
She doesn’t feel the increased costs are fully justified.
McIntosh said the village districts need to address the quality of the water they are receiving at their master meters.
“I don’t think this increased cost is a fair deal for us,” she said. “Fix our problem first.”
Commissioner Frank Huda said the prosecutor’s office is currently reviewing proposals to consolidate water districts, which would affect water rates.
