MONROE - A proposal to spend $74,000 for a county-wide water study next year was struck down in a deadlocked vote at the Land and Water Conservation Committee meeting Thursday. Green County Supervisor Kristi Leonard, who moved the study to be included in the conservation department's 2017 budget, defended the need it, citing advanced technology that would be used in the study to catalog groundwater throughout the county. "The technology is there," Leonard said.
