Water Project – Evans vs Brant
The towns of Brant, North Collins and Eden were all considering water projects at the same time as Evans. The other three towns asked their resident what they thought was needed and if they thought the their town could afford the project.
In Evans, the first meeting on the water project was to “inform” residents about the project. The cost was $12,000,000 for water improvements and $8,000,000 for road improvements. After objections to the cost, the $8,000,000 for roads was removed from any public discussion.
Just how were Evans residents better represented by a five member board?
Below is the letter and survey Brant sent to its residents.
