Mayor responds to council's decision to dissolve RAWA

READING, Pa. - Reading Mayor Vaughn Spencer has responded to City Council's vote Tuesday night to dissolve the Reading Area Water Authority.

Spencer had supported entering into a new long-term lease with RAWA, but council members said the city needs to create a new authority with better financial oversight.

During a news conference Wednesday afternoon, Spencer said council's decision to dissolve the authority raises many questions.

"When is the authority or the board being completely dissolved? What does that mean as far as our city auditors here? What does it mean as far as the budget issue and some of the other things?" Spencer asked.

Spencer said he will discuss the questions he has with City Council during a meeting on June 11. Spencer assured RAWA customers that there will be no disruptions in service.
