The Jackson County Board of Commissioners met behind closed doors with the county water authority for one hour Monday morning before voting to file a lawsuit against the Upper Oconee Basin Authority over the county’s share of the Bear Creek reservoir.
The BOC voted for the law firm of Balch and Bingham to file the lawsuit to “verify and establish the county’s share of the reservoir.” Bruce Yates made the motion and commissioner Dwain Smith and chairman Pat Bell voted in favor of it. Commissioners Jody Thompson and Tom Crow were not at the meeting.
