Camp said the board didn't receive the information until Jim. 6. "Did we go to the newspaper frst?" Camp said. "No. We went tO them and they ignored us. We liaven't been gratified about liaving to lay down the law on Kyle. But when they ignore us for months and the overpumpage Mattis wasn't sufficiently forth- coming in communications with the council. And, added Camp, Mattis has been no more cooper- ative with the water board. "Our staff has been totally frustrated with Tom Mattis," Camp said. "So is our general manager and so is our board. Our board and staff decided we've had enough with him." is this what to do." Thickening the plot, Camp told the city late last month that the aquifer board wished to by- pass the city maaager in negoti- ations and deal with the ci council. Camp said he has found councilmembers to be more " cooperative than Mattis, adding that councilmembers Troy Bearden and Lon Taylor have Complimented him on his con- sistency throughout the process. Camp added that Moore raged to him last fall about discoveriug the city's water problems ill the media. According to Camp, the fact the Moore learned of the prob- lems in the media indicate that extreme, I don't knOw Moore, Bearden and Taylor all declined comment after Tuesday's meeting. However, Mattis said he had received no indication that his communica- ,t ion with the board had been unsatisfactory. "No one has suggested on either side that I've lied or mis- led anyone," Mattis said. Leading to the dramatic pay- off at Tuesday's meeting, Mattis presented council with a new agreement with the Edwards Aquifer Authority (EAA), laud- hag that board's "professional- ism" throughout the process. Mattis said the city overpumped those wells by more than 77 mil- lion gallons in 2001 and avoided a $23,000 free by funding a $68,000 project to aid the city's water works. Mattis added that the city overpumped the EAA by 120 million gallons in 2002, but avoided a fine by purchasing $37,500 in water rights. The presentation led up to a comparison between the EAA and the BS/EACD: The city could have settled excess pumpage of nearly 200 million gallons with the EAA by spend- ing $60,000, while the BS/EACD wanted $130,000 for 89 million in excess pumpage. With that, Moore asked Mattis if the EAA was asking for councilmembers to call board members and apologize or even go to lunch. Mattis answered each in the negative. With that, Moore made his motion, the council approved and Marsh went off into the night, insulted and without an agreement. 424 N. Loop 4, Buda, Texas 512-312-5252 oeeBe Barbara B.
