A few months ago, we became the laughing stock of the state because of the shenanigans that went on with our elections board.
Now we are in the middle of a finger pointing, “Who’s in charge here?” scenario involving the Water Authority, Rockdale Water Resources and the County Board of Commissioners.
We believe that there are some smart people involved with this dispute. We also believe everybody has the same ultimate goal — for Rockdale to have a robust water system to attract and support economic development and to make sure that the community has clean water to drink and toilets that flush.
From the commission chair on down, they need to get together in good faith and straighten this mess out. Everybody needs to swallow their pride and take the high road, even if it means taking some personal hits.
The alternative is to become a laughing stock and lower the quality of life — and that is something nobody wants.
