Gaddy to Bring Water Plan to Blythewood

WINNSBORO – Mayor Roger Gaddy told The Voice after Monday’s Council meeting that he plans to attend the Blythewood Town Council meeting at their next regular meeting on Dec. 22, with the intention of opening up the lines of communication not just with Blythewood’s Mayor J. Michael Ross, but with Council as well.

“Mike (Ross) and I have talked, but I have not talked with the Blythewood Council members to explain Winnsboro’s decisions regarding the water issue between the towns,” Gaddy said.

He said he plans to not only talk with them, but to ask for their support in Winnsboro’s endeavors to continue to provide water service to Blythewood.

“I think it’s important for us to talk, and I want to explain why Winnsboro can’t and doesn’t want to be dependent on Columbia water in the future. We want to be able to negotiate with industry as it comes to our area. We want to be in control of our own destiny,” Gaddy said. “And I think it will be good for our Town governments to have an open dialogue.”

The meeting will be held at 7 p.m. at The Manor.
