Annetta fires water advisors who led annexation efforts

(Continued)

“Both of them ... were the two that were very negative,” Wood said.

“This seems a little bit harsh that this is the first time we’re hearing about it and you’re asking for their immediate removal and to my knowledge or recollection, I’ve heard nothing but positive things of our water board as a whole,” Mayor Bruce

Pinckard said, adding that he was concerned about the timing of the issue.

Machak said he believed the council was acting too quickly.

“I think that all the crap we’ve put up with the past three months was orchestrated from that direction, though I have no proof of it,” Wood said.

Sheridan said he felt creating the water committee was one of the smartest things they’ve done, allowing the council to get a lot of information they normally would not have had about how to operate the water system.

“He has obviously been very dedicated in getting us information,” Sheridan said of Thompson.

“Let’s grow and work together and not do something as exacting as getting rid of somebody,” Sheridan said, adding that he felt the removal was harsh in light of what had been accomplished by the committee.

Moore said he believed the committee had chastised the council, adding that he was not happy with the leadership.

Several recent statements from Thompson have been negative and over the bounds, Patterson said.

“I would hate to have any action taken without those accused having a chance to defend themselves,” Pinckard said.

Sheridan said he thought discussion of the town hall facility was somewhat justified. “Some of that money that is going to be needed to fund city hall will come from the water system,” Sheridan, adding that the two issues are related.

“The council, as I recollect, requested the advisory committee to look at some of those items,” Pinckard said, something Wood disputed.
