PSJ commissioners clash over utility rate waiver policy

His motion was quickly seconded by Commissioner Phil McCroan and Commissioner Bo Patterson expressed support, but Mayor Mel Magidson advised caution.

“We don’t need to be dealing with water bill adjustments every meeting,” he said.

He said commissioners were not requiring any payment on the bill in question until a policy was in place and said commissioners were elected to set the standards for staff to follow.

Thursbay angrily responded, “I am tired of it.”

He said he sat in his chair on the podium each week, made motions and watched as 15-20 minutes went by while the issue was debated, in particular by Magidson.

“It takes an act of God to make you move,” he said.

Gibson stepped in at Magidson’s request after Magidson responded to Thursbay to “Now, settle down a minute.”
