House panel OKs Boone County sewer bill

The Cincinnati Enquirer

        FRANKFORT — A bill that would expand oversight of Northern Kentucky's sewer district passed out of a House committee Thursday with a favorable vote and a message to Boone County commissioners.

        The bill was scheduled for a vote last week in the House Local Govern ment Committee but was delayed being called by the bill's sponsor, Rep. Charlie Walton, R-Florence, at the urging of House Majority Caucus Chairman Jim Callahan, D-Wilder.

        The lawmakers were concerned over a resolution passed last week by Boone County Fiscal Court. It called for the county to study privatizing some sanitary sewer operations.

        Mr. Walton's bill would give Boone County another voting seat on the board of directors of Sanitation District No. 1 of Northern Kentucky, which manages and operates Northern Kentucky's sewer system.

        Mr. Callahan said he had the bill delayed to let the commissioners know their actions impeded “ ... regionalism and spirit of cooperation.”
