The City of Maricopa does not have a good relationship with the board of the Maricopa Consolidated Domestic Water Improvement District.
That played out visually Tuesday when a city council invitation to the water district board for a special meeting drew only one member. Chairman Dean Scott faced the council alone, saying he was there probably against the wishes of his board.
City Councilmember Marvin Brown, who has been the council’s de facto water expert, was clearly put out by the district’s response, calling it an affront and lack of respect.
