Vote YES on 34-112
I got my ballot in the mail today for the Nov 8 vote on whether Sherwood will continue to be robbed by the city of Portland for their water or if Sherwood will make an investment in ourselves and build a pipleline in cooperation with the city of Wilsonville to get treated water from the Willamette.
I strongly urge a YES vote on this measure.
Portland has enjoyed a relative monopoly in the water providing bussiness and they have acted like it. Bull Run water prices have been going up and will continue to if Sherwood signs another long-term contract with Portland.
Wilsonville has a top-notch treatment facility and have been using the Willamette as a water source for some time. The water exceeds all EPA guidlines.
With a YES vote, Sherwood will own the infrastructure that brings the water too us. We will no longer be renting from Portland.
Besides, there's obviously something strange in the water from Portland... there's no other explanation for the craziness from that city.
