Cecil County’s daily newspaper says Elkton’s deal with “Artesian was not a good one”

The editorial writers at the Cecil Whig offered their take on the nearly 60% increase in water rates Elkton residents are facing, in an opinion piece in Tuesday’s paper (Oct. 25, 2011).  The “gigantic increase” that came about after
the town signed a new contract with Artesian is “a pretty big pill to swallow, the
column stated.  The paper’s conclusion:  “What seems clear is that the agreement with Artesian was not a good one.   We wonder how carefully the town considered it before signing off.  It looks like water users think not carefully
enough, and we’re inclined to agree.”
