Do local laws protect our water?
The Fryeburg Land Use Ordinance (rev 2009) states that any development atop a "prime aquifer" must first complete a study of adverse affects on the aquifer before approval. The LUO is based on Fryeburg's Comprehensive Plan (rev 2104) Ch 3: Natural Resources. The Comp Plan is not law but provides guidance for law makers when writing ordinances.
Why move to public ownership?
FWD trustees believe that transparency of business practices, citizen voice and security of quality and quantity are best insured when residents and rate payers can choose who will make the decisions about expenses and income from our local aquifer. Read here about the process of remunicipalization moving toward public ownership of the town water system.
