Harold Myers, Owner, appeared before the Commissioners to complain about the Twin Lakes Regional Sewer Board filing a lien on his campground. When his campground was destroyed last year with the January 7 floods, he contacted the TLRSD because the sewer lines were starting to back up. He was told by the TLRSD that he did not call to have the sewer lines turned back on. He felt that it was not fair for the TLRSD to charge him a monthly service when his sewer lines were shut off January thru May 15. He refused to pay the $4,000 bill and they have since put a lien on his property.

The Commissioners explained that they are responsible for appointing the members but they do not have any control over the TLRSD. They suggested Mr. Myers to go back to the TLRSD and try to work out an agreement with them.


Pat Robertson, Carroll County resident, said that she was concerned about a stop sign that was missing from Hicks Corner. White County Highway Superintendent Steve Brooke explained where the stop sign was supposed to be and the issue was resolved.

There being no further business to come before the board, their meeting was adjourned.
