MWCD assessment stopped
(2007-12-15)
(WOUB) - The state legislature has stopped the Muskingum Watershed Conservancy District from implementing a 200 million dollar assessment for a major building program.

The district describes it as "a temporary hold" -- the result of action taken this past week.

That prompted a special Muskingum Watershed board meeting yesterday...which resulted in the passage of a resolution.

The resolution authorizes the administration of the 18 county district to " take the necessary steps to protect the interests of the conservancy district."

The executive director said -- "We are certainly disheartened that the General Assembly has taken this action...because of the need to begin work on major projects in the district."

Collection of the assessment was scheduled to begin in a few weeks.
