Water rights a very hot issue

An article in the Deseret Morning News talks about the fight that Roosevelt is having right now to be able to use water that they have a right to use. When I was on the City Council, Weber Basin Water wanted to drill a well located on city property. I got more phone calls on this issue than on any other single issue that came before the council. Water rights are still an extremely touchy subject in the state of Utah. This lawsuit that Roosevelt is involved in could easily affect every city in the state. Should our city give some of our money to help fight this battle?
