Disagreement over county's financing Southern Water & Sewer

A regular vote to pay the county’s bills garnered some dissent last Friday, as one magistrate protested the continued financing of Southern Water and Sewer. John Goble, magistrate for District 1, voted against paying the claims, though the list was passed by the other magistrates present. Goble said that when the county’s fiscal problems weren’t so glaring, it was understandable to chip in and help, but now the county simply can’t afford it. "The county is running in the red and we just can’t afford to pay everybody’s bills." Goble insinuated that politics is driving the continued financing of Southern Water and Electric. "Politics is politics, but what’s right is right."
