Newspaper account of meeting was very inaccurate

Published 9:50 am Friday, November 4, 2011

I would like to point out some of the inaccuracies written by Teresa Moore about the city council meeting on Thursday Oct. 27, as very few things were quoted accurately.

First, I did not say, nor was I, upset about the two disconnect notices from the water department.

Second, I am not afraid to step in the mud. There is mud in front of my house 365 days a year. I said I did not want to drive a car through six-inch deep mud (caused by the water leak) and track it through my garage.

I discussed problems we have reaching anyone who knows anything about the mud (left after the water leaks) or how to clean the streets after the leak.

Previous administrations have had mud removed as soon as the leaks were fixed.

There were several other matters about water bills discussed that were more important than what was reported in the Ironton Tribune.
