Sewer Vote Update.


Courtesy News from Julie Zahner Bailey.

Dear Milton Citizens, Friends and Neighbors -

For all the Moms in our community, Happy Mother's Day. And for all of our mother's whom we honor, thank you for all you have done for us.

On the City front, last week I provided you information about an agenda item scheduled to be heard at our May 3 Council meeting. The agenda item read as follows:

- Discussion and Vote on Justice Norman Fletcher's Proposed Sewer Map with Fulton County, Georgia, pursuant to the Service Delivery Strategy Act Court Ordered Mediation. (Agenda Item No. 10-1129)

Results:

- Motion to deny the proposed mediated position failed 5-2 (Councilperson Tart made the motion, seconded by Councilmember Zahner Bailey) Motion to call the question passed 6-1.

- Motion to approve eight parcels passed 4-3 (Councilmember Bill Lusk put forward the motion to approve the proposed mediated position PLUS all additional parcels requested by Fulton County for sewer extension - the motion was seconded by Council member Joe Longoria. Lusk, Longoria, Lockwood and Thurman voted to approve the motion).

The result of this motion and vote is that approximately 138 acres of land from Arnold Mill to Green Road to Crabapple Road to Freemanville to Mayfield is poised for sewer extension. These parcels were never intended for sewer as they are in the Etowah Basin. In September, 2008 when a majority of Council voted for sewer extension, these 138 acres of land were not included in the then vote to extend sewer to some parcels.

The City Attorney and the Community Development Director at the time said for the record that these parcels would represent sewer extension. This was restated for the record last Monday night by the City Attorney when asked to state his position. Nevertheless, by a vote of 4-3, a majority of Council voted to approve this latest wave of sewer extension.

Please note that since this vote, the Mayor and Council have received additional requests for sewer extension from other landowners.

Subsequent to the May 3 meeting, citizens have inquired as to how it can be that a vote of this magnitude -- a vote and motion that went way beyond the proposed mediated position of the court mediator -- could proceed without ample time for the public to be apprised of the issue, much less the specifics. These are all questions that need to be posed to the City Manager, the City Attorney and those who voted to allow this to proceed despite any details being formally posted or available.

If you wish to review the proceedings of the May 3 agenda item and vote, use this link from the City of Milton website.

Please note, this agenda item had only been advertised for the one week prior. Citizens had questioned why there was no information posted accompanying the agenda. The response they had received was that it was potentially confidential information, yet it was discovered subsequent to the City of Milton Council meeting that Fulton County had posted the maps and letter tied to this issue without concern. Click here for the letter and map.

If you have concerns, questions or comments about this issue, please provide me your input while also contacting staff and the entire Council. Your input matters.

Also, there is a Work Session scheduled for Monday, May 10th at 6:00 p.m. and a Council meeting on Monday, May 17th at 6:00 p.m.. The agendas for these meetings and others is in the right margin. Please note, public comments are always welcome at Work Sessions and Council meetings.

It is an honor to represent your interests.

I went to the meeting last week after she stired everything up with her emails for action and guess how big her army of followers is now? Four, and they are the same whacko's that do anything she says and get no respect.

All of those that believe this hogwash that she is printing then you can just come right up and ask for sewer! Lets see how truthfull she is then?

We emailed council and staff this past week stating our requirement to have our nine acres on Bethany included in the sewer map.

Two of the council have agreed; the others have not responded yet.

We can all bash Julie all we want, and Believe me I do understand the issues of relentlessness in her M.O. But one thing I know for certain from this letter - if it is 100% accurate and truthful - then we really have lost the fight for, or rather against, sewer. You all can be mean and ridiculous on this blog for the sake of pure political one sideness or actually have an intelligent conversation and figure out what the heck is going on with the picture as painted by way of this email. If these parcels were on the map for the extension of sewer proposed and approved by Fulton County, then that's one thing. If these parcels were NOT on that map, then the majority and "People" of the city of Milton have been duped. This is a very serious issue folks. I'm tired of talking about sewer. On the other hand, someone just LIED big time. It's either Julie or The majority of council who have been stating all along that these parcels were on that Fulton county map! Who isn't telling the truth? Someone please find out. This is crazy.

Julie is just grasping to get attention because she has nothing else to offer and she knows if the sewer issue goes away then she is worthless to the city. Of cours she is telling mis truths and twisting the facts, research yourself.

Tim, Julie has said in her emails that you can now ask for sewer and then get it, so we know she is supporting you but who is the other one?

Tim Enloe said...

I do not have confirmation that Mrs. Bailey is supporting our request.

The support comes from two others.

As this develops, I will keep you in the loop.

Thanks,

I guess the city attorney lied ON RECORD when he stated that the parcels represented sewer extension. Check public record.

He is correct based on her definition. If you stick a 1' piece of pipe onto an existing one it is "extention". What she misses is that there needed to be a legal boundary in order to enforce who gets sewer and who does not.

Last poster: let's hope your right and this isn't the wolf in sheepskin clothing

An activist like Julie will stretch and twist the facts in any way to see only their extremist view poit. Look at he personal life and reputation and you will definitely not want to follow her judgement. The only "wolf" out there is Bernerd that she tried to poison.

Ummm.... look at the rural picture settings of Lusk and Thurman during their last campaigns. Great examples of stretching and twisting the facts.

Hey thatwas Bill's horse and he also shared it with Tina for pictures. Jane brushes and cleans up after a horse everyday.
