Judge approves water supply district for Mahoning County suburbs

Published: Mon, November 30, 2009 @ 5:58 p.m.

YOUNGSTOWN — A judge has approved the creation of a regional water supply and storm water management district for Austintown, Boardman and Canfield townships.

Judge James C. Evans of Mahoning County Common Pleas Court approved creation of the district at a hearing today.

The judge ruled after he asked twice whether anyone in the audience objected to creation of the district, and nobody objected.

“This proposed district is necessary, and it, and the plan for the operation of the district, is conducive to the public health, safety, convenience and welfare,” Judge Evans said.

Iris Torres Guglucello, Youngstown city law director, and Dan Pribich, deputy city law director, sat silently in the back row of the courtroom; and Guglucello declined to comment after the hearing.

We'll see what this generates... The proposal was somewhat vague when presented to the public.
I'm sure lawyers will be falling over each other for a piece of this pie.

I hope it performs as promised, but lets not forget P.T. Barnum’s famous quote.

We can all thank Mayor Jay's flawed income tax for suburban water proposal scheme for this. Y-town played the water card one time too many and lost this big time. Can't wait to see what Mayor Jay's next move will be.

Will the new water district continue to use the youngstown water lines and infrastructure? One would think that the options for the burbs are to lease them, purchase them from the city, or completely install a new system on their own dime.
