I donít know how many years Montpelierís control of Berlin Pond has been an issue. Iím not even sure exactly when the issue made it to the Supreme Court. But wouldnít you think that Montpelier, with all its lawyers and its $100,000-plus city manager, had plenty of time to get its case together? It canít have been that difficult to read Vermont law and see that Montpelier might have a problem. Having seen that there might be a problem, wouldnít you think the city would be ready for a variety of eventualities, that it might even have been discussing possible solutions with the state?
Instead, here we are many months past the case moving to the Supreme Court and a week past the Supreme Court making its unanimous decision that Montpelier doesnít have control of Berlin Pond, and nothing has been done. People are trashing the city water supply, and where is our city manager? He is still preparing a list of options to present to the City Council, a list that should have been ready long before the Supreme Court made its decision. Is anybody else less than impressed?
