Officials give opinions on water plant project
PRINCETON — Not everyone agrees with Princeton Commissioner Joel Quiram’s statements at Monday night’s meeting of the Princeton City Council concerning what Quiram calls the extravagance of the new water tower project and its impact on residents’ water rates.
On Tuesday, Mayor Keith Cain said Quiram has been down this road before. He’s not been supportive of the project, and he (Cain) thinks Quiram’s comments are politically motivated at this time. Everyone has the right to his/her own opinion, and Quiram has the right to his opinion, the mayor said. However, the water treatment plant is near completion, so there’s no changing anything now, Cain added.
On Wednesday, Princeton City Manager Jeff Clawson said the water rates have not increased as much as depicted in Quiram’s statement. The hard part about utilities is that customers forget to factor in their utility use, he said.
