Jackson County School System May Be Stuck With Huge Water Bill

(1/20/2014)  The Jackson County School System recently received a shocking bill in the mail.  According to the Tuckaseigee Water and Sewer Authority the school system owes over sixteen thousand dollars for four months of water usage.  The stunning bill is attributed to new construction of the performing arts center and the gymnasium at Smoky Mountain High School.  TWSA determined that Jackson County Schools used over seventeen thousand gallons of water per day during the four month time span.  The School System must pay the complete amount unless TWSA changes their policy.  TWSA’s next board meeting will be held February 20th, in which Board Members will be discussing this matter in more detail with TWSA Director Dan Harbaugh.
