City of Fresno Issues Statement on Pinedale Water Issue

FRESNO –Assistant City Manager Bruce Rudd today issued the following statement concerning the Pinedale water situation:

"There appears to be a misunderstanding with regard to the letter that the City of Fresno sent to the Pinedale County Water District related to water service and the pending expiration of our 1985 agreement. To be clear, it has never been the City of Fresno's intention to shut off water service to the Pinedale Water District or its customers, but it remains our goal that the parties meet so that the terms of an extension or new agreement can be negotiated as soon as possible.

"The parties have reached an agreement that has postponed the current legal action pending further negotiations."
