Something’s missing in Devola sewer issue

I read with interest the Marietta Times article dated April 6 regarding the Devola sewer and the Environmental Protection Agency. As explained in the article, the county commissioners signed a contract with the city of Marietta to pay 11.7 percent of the cost of the upgraded wastewater treatment plant. This plant is being upgraded to receive this extra sewage from the county as mandated by Ohio EPA.

My sewer bill has gone up this year. It is my understanding that there will be a significant increase next year because the county has not paid their share.

Commissioner White was quoted as saying that the county is abiding by their promise to pay 11.7 percent of the cost for Marietta’s wastewater treatment plant upgrade.

Are they or aren’t they? Where’s the check?
