"No matter what the current feeling is toward the county system, years from now, when there is an emergency, we'll be thankful that someone had the forethought to ask for those hookups in the city," said Wilma Koss, president of the Saratoga Lake Association. Koss' group is now engaged in a legal battle with the city to dissuade it from developing Saratoga Lake as an alternate water source.
Resident David Bronner echoed Koss' sentiment. He said going to the lake was futile when a county system runs through the city. Bronner said when the day comes when the city finally realizes that the it will join the county system, the cost of going to Saratoga Lake will hit home. ""
