C. DAILY SUN: FUTURE OF FRYEBURG WATER DIST. MAY BE DECIDED

by Christian Mower on September 18, 2012

THE CONWAY DAILY SUN SAYS FRYEBURG WATER DISTRICT TRUSTEES ARE SCHEDULED TO DECIDE TUESDAY NIGHT WHETHER TO SUSPEND THE DISTRICT’S ACTIVITIES – A DECISION THAT MIGHT GO UNNOTICED EXCEPT FOR THE PROPOSED AGREEMENT BETWEEN NESTLE AND THE FRYEBURG WATER COMPANY.

THE SUN SAYS THE WATER DISTRICT WAS CREATED BY THE MAINE LEGISLATURE IN 2005 AS AN EMERGENCY MEASURE BUT ITS TRUSTEES HAVE SINCE OVERSEEN MORE ELECTIONS THAN WATER.

THE SUN SAYS THAT PROMPTED DICK KRASKER – A FOUNDING TRUSTEE – TO PROPOSE EARLIER THIS SUMMER “PUTTING THE DISTRICT TO SLEEP.”

THE SUN SAYS KRASKER’S PROPOSAL HAS RAISED CONCERNS FOR TRUSTEE SCOT MONTGOMERY, A CRITIC OF NESTLE, WHO SAYS HE HAS BEEN ASKED ABOUT CONFLICTS OF INTEREST – AND TELLS THE SUN A MOVE TO DEACTIVATE THE WATER DISTRICT SHOULD INCLUDE PUBLIC INPUT, PARTICULARLY AFTER THE ANNOUNCEMENT OF A 25-YEAR AGREEMENT BETWEEN FRYEBURG WATER COMPANY AND NESTLE.
