The Tuckaseigee Water and Sewer Authority will be holding a public forum this evening at 6:30 pm in the Cashiers Community Library’s Community Room in policy that was in place from 2008 to 2011 which allowed persons who purchased sewer allocation from TWSA for a specific use on a specific property to request a transfer of that sewer allocation to another property. This policy was established when there was a limited amount of sewer capacity available in the central part of Jackson County beginning in 2008. The policy was written in a way so that when additional capacity became available at the Waste Water Treatment Plant, the Transfer Policy would end. Additional capacity was reached with the completion of the Waste Water Treatment Plant expansion in July of 2011. There has recently been an interest to revisit the possibility of a Transfer Policy being reissued in the Cashiers area. The public meeting is meant to provide the community with a forum to receive information about TWSA, their obligation to manage flows, the history of past Transfer Policy, and what drives the issue currently. TWSA Executive Director, Dan Harbaugh states: “We want the public to have an opportunity to provide input into the process, so we’re holding this public meeting as a forum for such. We’re also receiving written comments through next Monday, September 9th at noon, to be incorporated into information being discussed with the TWSA Board at their Workshop Meeting on Tuesday, September 10th.”
