Council holds off on service delivery decision

Attorney cites ongoing talks

POSTED: October 18, 2012 12:31 a.m.

The Cumming City Council decided to table a vote on utility service areas during its regular monthly meeting Tuesday.

City Attorney Dana Miles recommended delaying the matter, which outlines service delivery strategies for the city and Forsyth County’s water and sewer departments, until the governments have finished their mediation sessions.

The two sides met behind closed doors Monday and Tuesday for mediation regarding the division of local option sales tax funds and an ongoing water contract dispute.

Miles said the current service delivery strategy, which is renewed every 10 years per state requirements, expires at the end of October.

“The county has requested an extension through February of next year [on the delivery strategy] and in light of the ongoing mediation over water, LOST and other service delivery strategy issues, I would recommend that you table this item in the hopes that in the next few days we’ll be able to complete that mediation and arrive at an agreement,” Miles told council. “If we’re able to that, then we won’t need an extension.”

Council voted 5-0 to table the strategy extension.
