"..the law, which requires a citywide referendum and a super-majority vote by Charlottesville City Council."

Presuming the above statement is accurate, then the city council has already committed felonies. In that case, arrests, trials, and convictions should follow.

But--of course--nothing would be done.

"Because the alliance is a new group, funding for the case is the next need on the table." First, it's a new group in name only. Same old obstructionists. Second there are four of them, not thirty. Third, funding for the case is non-existent, which is why they are sending out press releases like mad. Fourth, this project has been studied to death and has widespread public support including all major civic organizations, UVA, Charlottesville City Council, Albemarle BOS and RWSA. Fifth, the dam contract is for 21.5 million not 200 million which includes many infrastructure improvements. Sixth, water rates from RWSA will not go up due to the construction. Seventh, why anyone would defend "mellow-yellow" forever is just nuts.

Dam tree-huggers. I guess they needed to find something else to do with their time after the "occupy" movement crashed & burned. Not enough money was wasted trashing Lee Park, so they're going to try a lawsuit now. Guess they've forgotten about the drought we had a few years ago, huh? Do the rest of us a favor and just stick to eating your tofu & drinking your Evian, huh? I think the rest of the city wants to ensure plenty of water.

The Commonwealth needs to pass a law similar to that passed by Texas...loser in these types of lawsuits pays all legal bills for both sides. If a group can't guarantee payment, the suit is dropped.

The regressive thinking by this group is one reason why I chose to retire in a place other than Charlottesville. These people call themselves intellectuals. They are regressive thinkers who won't be happy until all are on buses, on bicycles, or driving a horse drawn wagon.

Look at this group, their core is from the "Gang of 10" who oppose everything because they are luddites. Every time you see a lawsuit of this type it's the same group of 10 or less on any issue.

I agree, they should have to pay if they lose the suit. Then we'd see these nuisance suits stop.

Or I wish there would be a way for a class action lawsuit against these obstructionists. How many teachers and police officers have to lose their jobs to fund the defense against this lawsuit in a time of shrinking government resources?

These idiots are against anything that promotes progress! Except where money talks; subdivisions continue to be approved and built. Do you think at 35% increase in population places a strain on water supply? It's already getting warm and we are having a decrease in rain and it's only March!

More of the same crap from the same losers. In other news, Lindsey Lambert is freaking smokin' hot. If NBC29 wants to up their ratings, they need more of her kind on air and less makeup shotgun drunks like Sharon Gregory who can't even read a teleprompter.

Funny, posters here are the first ones to criticize others looking out for their own interests and the will be the first ones to howl like scalded dog when their water rates go sky high. Its no wonder this country is going down the tubes.

Actually, The Villages...dumb azz. As far as Sanford is concerned, liberals should let this individual be tried in the courts not in the press.

We need to get moving on a solution to the water problem before the NEXT drought. This has taken WAY too much time already.

There is no way this handful of obstructionists are looking out for the residents. Got any proof the water rates are going up because of the dam? What has the RWSA said on the subject... no rate increase. And you would know better?
