(In regard to Mary Snead’s Feb. 9 letter to the editor,) the Columbia County monthly newsletter, which is included in our water utility statements, has been one of the most beneficial uses of funds in our area. Yes, Ron Cross’s letter addressed the situation of the Tax Commissioner “this time”. However, it addressed how the commission is or not involved; what steps are being taken to correct the issue and who would be involved in an unbiased way.
This “newsletter” has also addressed a breakdown in your water bill; “SPLOST” funds and how they are used; building codes in a community growing by leaps and bounds, and interaction of local government just to name a few.
Ms. Snead, “yes” Ron Cross is our commissioner, but I cannot think of a better source than the water utility bill to bring all of the Columbia County community informative, concise information about its governing body. You are the one making it a political issue.
