Gainesville City Council on Tuesday tabled a joint agreement that supports Hall County’s application to the state to fund Glades Reservoir.
Councilwoman Ruth Bruner said she would like to look at the recently updated application for $14.5 million in project funding for Glades. Councilwoman Myrtle Figueras was absent from last week’s work session when the agreement was presented by Public Utilities Director Kelly Randall. The item was tabled for at least 30 days, but less than 60 days.
Several speakers spoke against the agreement at the meeting, including Sally Bethea, executive director of the Chattahoochee Riverkeeper, and Lauren Joy, an associate attorney with the Southern Environmental Law Center.
