That water dispute has been the subject of ongoing litigation. The Griffin Daily News reports (http://bit.ly/U2d3uR ) that Coweta County and its water authority have spent more than a half million dollars in legal fees to win a change in price.
Under a 50-year contract, Coweta is required to buy a set number of gallons of water daily from Griffin. The required purchases increase each year until peaking at 7.5 million gallons per day in 2025. At one point, Cowetta offered $7 million to buy a share of the Griffin water system so it could get the same rates as city residents.
The Griffin Board of Commissioners has scheduled a vote on the matter for Tuesday.
