Commissioners made the wrong decision
Placeholder Image
This letter is in response to the anger of many Dawson County taxpayers over Commissioners Jimmy Hamby, Julie Hughes Nix, and Sharon Fausett voting down an agreement with Etowah Water and Sewer Authority for the installation of adequate "water lines and fire hydrants" as noted in the Dawson News May 11 article. Since fire protection is the responsibility of Dawson County officials, the issues and implications are clear. First, the existing water lines and hydrants are not in any way adequate for fire protection of our homes.
