Clint Didier, Donnie Landsman, Donnie4Commissioner, Will McKay, Matthew Shea ... this is the Open House to discuss the proposed Resevoir in which KID is attempting buy 4 productive farms, one of which is the Robert Cox Farms. The Coxes DO NOT want to sell their farm and KID is threatening to condemn the property and cease said property by emminent domain.

sounds like Covid is the perfect excuse to hide their doings under the rug. There are other options, KID clearly just doesn't care.

Why is irrigation down in west kennewick and when will it be back up? Hottest days of the year and there’s an outage

KID needs to leave the Cox family be. You say you care about the community, but then do something under-handed like going after a farmer and his family. Shame on you. Stop it.

It was so good to hear that there wouldn't be a shortage of water this year. Too bad the equipment keeps breaking down in the middle of the last two heat waves. So much for the garden, eh. I guess a burnt yard is what we pay for? Sorry for the rant but it's frustrating. Can someone speak to the plan for maintaining and refreshing the infrastructure?

Also the small print on bottom right the photo says : This is not a public hearing. This is for informational purposes only. Will this meeting even be for the public to ask questions?

No public comment? No questions? Not a real Open House and no transpanency?

Premuim farm ground is NOT the correct option to put a Reservoir. With this virus going on right now most have realize how important FARM GROUND IS, for everyday living and needs. People need to eat. 🍉🌽🌶🥒🥬🥦🥔🥕🍓🥩👨‍🌾🚜👩‍🌾

This is for the matter of Robert Cox Farms vs KID eniment domain matter. I would like the public to be aware that they are trying to force us to sell our 65 Acer farm, that our family has owned since 1966, my late grandfather build this house and farm to make it what it is today. KID stated they stand behind us farmers, and need a Reservoir but they want to take prime farm land almost 400 acres of the land here in badger canyon to put this pond that no one is getting any answers too, the public has been very unaware the situation that KID is trying to place eniment domain , take prime farm ground and also taking are home and shop away from us. KID needs to look into further options , and make the public more aware exspecially the neighbors out here in or around badger canyon! Please follow Robert cox Farms Facebook for more info and updated on this matter ! Thank you for the huge public concern for us at Cox Farms

Kennewick Irrigation - my question for you is: alot people are not going to be able to have access to zoom. Some people dont know how to even use zoom. Or have computer access. This is not going to be a good option in my opinion for the public to get the answers they much Desired since the last meeting. Is this another stall tactic from KID for the public to hopefully forget about this matter? Is KID hoping the public is not able to attend the much needed information meeting ? As you seen from last meeting there was a very high attendants wanting lots of answers. Charles freeman stated - they would have to rent a place for the public meeting to hold the 65 thousand rate payers ! Maybe Mr. Freeman forgot he stated that would have to be the option and also why the last meeting was delayed. As Mr. Freeman said the meeting would not be until after the Corona virus, to were they were able to have the open house, were the public could attend 🤔 Has KID even try at this point to look into other options? Like Kirk rathbun stated to Robert Cox in the parking lot after the last meeting: Kirk said if you robert can find us another area to do this project, Robert said well look harder , I'll try to do your job and find better land for you. KID you haven't looked into further options still have you ? Going with the easy Convenient land🤷‍♀️
