After the meeting with everyone last week he is looking at addressing the various concerns and incorporating them into his plan. This includes options for serving the sewer needs. I understand he had met with Cobb Water & Sewer to explore different options and is in need of some more time to explore them. That being said, the meeting was advertised as a public hearing so anyone wanting to attend to express their positions (in favor or against) will have time to do so, I just wanted to let you know that the Commission will not have the information before them to engage in discussion as the plan may or may not be adjusted before October.”
