Franklin escalates against Norfolk on water dispute

Norfolk, for some reasons known to themselves, have not lived up to their end of the 1993 agreement on water by either returning the water provided, and providing some $43,000. Franklin has therefore initiated a termination of the agreement as part of the process to reach a more equitable agreement to this situation.

Norfolk will get a year notice to allow their 13 residents to find another water source after Franklin terminates the agreement, unless there is a resolution along the way.

Additional documents pertaining to this are available on the Franklin Town Council web site. (PDF)

The Town Council passed the resolution to terminate the agreement after some discussion to try and tighten the time line.
