In case you missed this in the South Now insert in your Wednesday Journal Sentinel paper:
I was a little surprised to see Franklin officials willing to spend a million dollars to “beautify” their city hall, when they have just spent several years and a bundle of money to prevent the Oak Creek Water facility from upgrading the water plant.
That upgrade would have allowed the plant to meet state Department of Natural Resources requirements and improve reliability by replacing equipment that is beyond its life expectancy and for which repair parts are no longer available.
They were assured there would be no increase in rates due to this project, but that made no difference. I guess it’s different when the shoe is on the other foot.
