A rally Sunday afternoon at the Forsyth County Courthouse drew people with passion and questions about the ongoing water dispute between the county and the city of Cumming. A crowd of about 30 gathered at the gazebo and on the sidewalk to discuss what can be done to get the contract issue resolved fairly. The county and city governments have not been able to agree on a new contract since the previous one expired in May.
