The council voted 3/2 to On Dec 3rd to approved a request for pressurized irrigation connections to the Highland City system. Ironically, this is the ditch adjacent to the East side of Wimbleton. The details were NOT finalized in the Dec 3rd meeting. It was necessary to approve this in order pave the way for the council to also approve the disposal of Wimbleton.
Councilman Ed Dennis is trying to get it abandoned by having the city provide water via the pressurized irrigation system to a large user that is currently in the county. There are still too many unresolved issues with that plan to approve it. If the ditch is unresolved then about a third of the trail can’t be sold. As of the Dec 3rd meeting, it wasn’t resolved.
