County commissioners have first public hearing

by Ty Beaver, Herald and News 2/5/08

   The Klamath County Board of Commissioners held its first public hearing regarding the proposed Klamath Basin Restoration Agreement Monday.
   Presentations from those who worked on the agreement were given with commissioners asking questions. As of 10 p.m., the meeting had yet to allow any public comment.
   Groups such as the Klamath Tribes continued to advocate for the agreement, saying it would provide certainty and stability for the Basin.
   The Klamath Off-Project Water Users continued to oppose the agreement, instead laying out a plan to bring the settlement groups back together and reach an agreement that will be beneficial to all parties, not just a majority.
   Commissioners asked questions of each presentation, but the overall sentiment was that more time is needed to analyze the agreement.
   “Taking a little bit more time seems to be a prudent action,” said Commissioner Al Switzer.
