While progress has been made on several aspects of the state mandated Service and Delivery Strategy, Barrow County and its municipalities remain divided on the issue of water rates.
On October 2, leaders of Barrow County’s municipalities were shocked when Barrow County Commission Chairman Danny Yearwood announced he intended to renegotiate the water contracts between the county and the cities.
Before the issue could be discussed further, Yearwood abruptly left the meeting.
