The water department mess in Rockwood has gotten messier — and just when we thought the city council there had turned the corner.
Here’s a quick summary:
After some members of the city council focused attention on municipal utility director Rod King, he filed suit against some of those same people, accusing them of meeting illegally to discuss his fate.
Last week, the council approved a $75,000 settlement with King, contingent on his resignation. In between, there has been much finger pointing, teeth gnashing and even plenty of back biting.
