Lewis & Clark Water Project Votes to Stand Still

The Board of Directors of the Lewis & Clark Regional Water Project met last week to discuss and vote on their options for continued construction of the project.

Executive Director Troy Larson said they had a couple of possibilities………

Larson said the board decided to wait and watch to see what Congress may add to their budget for next year………

The vote to stand still passed on a fourteen to five vote.

Larson says there is frustration all around due to the lack of federal support……

Larson says the federal obligation stands at just over two hundred million dollars.
