Why must utility payments go all the way to Va.?

-A A +A

Why must we mail our Watts Bar Utility District payments to Virginia?

This has resulted in a late payment for me.

The clerk said, “It takes more days in the mail since the letters go to Virginia. They deposit it in our account the day they receive it.”

Why can’t we hire someone in Roane County to do this work? Who authorized this money to go out of our county? Who benefitted? Who has the answer?

We have people in our county who need this job, these wages!

I am disappointed that Virginia is being paid to handle our county’s money.
