Leland's Response to H2GO's Proposed Lawsuit Settlement
The Town of Leland sent a formal response to the proposal from Brunswick Regional Water and Sewer (H2GO) Sanitary District regarding possible settlement of the litigation arising from the H2GO’s transfer of all its assets to the Town of Belville.
The letter, signed by Leland Mayor Brenda Bozeman, was delivered on Friday, Feb. 21, to Ron Jenkins, Chairman of the H2GO Board of Commissioners, as well as H2GO’s Executive Director Bob Walker and Belville Mayor Mike Allen.
“We support building an aquifer-based reverse osmosis plant if it is the product of regional cooperation and Leland and its citizens are protected from future unlawful or unfair conduct. This would be achieved by the previously proposed regional compromise plan that representatives of Belville, the Sanitary District and Leland discussed and tentatively agreed to last year,” said Bozeman. “We hope to reengage in a dialogue with Belville and H2GO officials to finalize the regional compromise plan, so this matter can be resolved quickly with a solution that addresses everyone’s interests.”
