Prichard Water Board May Be Up For A Vote Again

Prichard Water Board May Be Up For A Vote Again

Posted: Updated:
MONTGOMERY, Alabama - State Senate Minority Leader Vivian Davis Figures is introducing another piece of legislation taking aim at the Prichard Water Board.  In late 2012 voters approved a measure to dissolve the board.  Last year the Alabama Supreme Court overturned the vote saying the referendum wasn’t done properly.  Figures says she’s introducing a bill this legislative session to put the issue on the ballot again.  She says the new bill addresses the higher court’s concerns.

“It is on the fast track [Majority Leader Del Marsh] understands it needs to pass immediately so it can go on the June 3rd primary ballot, I've spoken with probate judge Don Davis he wants it to be on the June 3rd ballot,” says State Senator Figures.  Opponents of the Water Board argue homeowners could eventually get lower rates by become Mobile Area Water and Sewer System customers.
