Residents of Jackson, Barrow, Oconee and Clarke counties should be outraged at their public officials for voting last week to grant special privileges to some residents based on where they live.
The Upper Oconee Basin Water Authority voted to limit use of the Bear Creek Reservoir by the public to three days a week, but grant seven-days-a-week access to owners of property adjacent to the lake. Several went so far as to suggest that people who bought “lakefront” (actually, no private property touches the lake) lots must be given priority treatment.
The Upper Oconee Basin Water Authority voted last week that people who own property that abuts authority land at Bear Creek Reservoir will be able to use the lake seven days a week. Other citizens may use it three days a week.
