In January, the Danville City Commission passed Resolution No. 2003-12-30-01 titled: "A non-binding resolution expressing the intention of the Danville City Commission to purchase water from the Bluegrass Water Supply Commission." The resolution states that it is Danville's "intention to enter into a long-term agreement with the proposed Bluegrass Water Supply Commission to secure committed capacity for one million gallons of water per day." The resolution further states, "Danville expects to actually draw 200,000 gallons of water from the grid per day."
The Citizens for Good Government-Danville/Boyle County requests that the City Commission provide it answers to the following questions before any vote on the ordinance presented to the Danville City Commission Feb. 23 by representatives of the Bluegrass Water Consortium.
1. If the City of Danville desires to only sell water, why would the City Commission pass a resolution commiting it to buy? Why does Danville want to be a member of the Bluegrass Water Supply Commission?
