Forsyth County News
Extortion is the only word to describe what Mayor Gravitt and the Cumming City Council are perpetrating upon the citizens of Forsyth County for the water the city pumps from Lake Lanier and sells to the county. In addition to the city’s water racket, there is the city’s continuing attempt at extorting from the county a disproportionate share of sales tax revenues. Extortion can be the only accurate way to describe these travesties!
