Jimmy Poss w sm
The mayor and aldermen of Smithville have scheduled a special meeting Thursday night to come to a final agreement on what to charge DeKalb Utility district for water. The special meeting is set for tomorrow night, Dec. 12, 5 p.m. at city hall.At last week’s regular meeting of the city council, some members expressed dismay that DUD officials have not contacted the city to begin negotiations on a new water-purchase contract with the city.“We've given them every opportunity to come before us or meet with us and work with us to thrash this out, and they're not wanting to do it,” Alderman Danny Washer told the council. “I think we should have a special called meeting and set the rate and be done with it.”
