I have mixed feelings. I have not seen anything good come of a public utility anywhere, and our local government does not instill feelings of trust or merit, but Utilities Inc is the worst I've seen yet. I would rather see competition.

Its a power grab from Kholbarger and crew, they want to take over the water so they can control the use of the water and then build build build.

This deal sounds like a bad idea for the county and a great idea for the Hafen family.
The utility company thought they were building something big during the housing boom in Pahrump, and have been running under capacity every since.
They took a gamble and are now looking for the county to bail them out so they can make some of their money back.
