Over a dozen stockholders and officials with Twin Lakes Canal Company met with Franklin County Commissioners recently and asked elected officials to retract two letters it wrote to the Idaho Water Resources Board concerning adoption of roads that would be built if a proposed dam in the Oneida Narrows is constructed.
The canal company asserted shortly after a recent hearing by the Idaho Water Resources Board about the proposed dam, the commission wrote letters to Water Resources alleging testimony was given that Franklin County would be willing to adopt the roads that would be built as a result of the dam. In the letter the canal company made reference to, it said Franklin County was not willing to adopt or maintain a road.
Company officials said information in the commission letter to the IDWRB is false because no such testimony was given at the hearing. In the same letter Twin Lakes said the commission stated the public voted and do not support the proposed dam. It told the commission at the meeting it feels they blatantly misrepresented the outcome of a non-binding advisory vote held in 2006.
