Buckeye recall effort fails to meet goal

Buckeye Mayor Jackie Meck won’t have to stand for election again this year after an effort started by residents angry over disputed water bills failed to gain enough signatures to recall the longtime public official.

A week before the March 23 deadline to file 1,718 signatures required to trigger the recall election, Jeff Hancock, organizer of Buckeye Residents Against High Water Bills, acknowledged that his group had fallen short of its goal.

Hancock said the group would have collected about 1,200 signatures if all petitions were returned as promised.

“It’s not a lost cause,” Hancock said of the controversy that brought attention to water bills for hundreds of dollars for thousands of gallons of water that residents said they didn’t use.

They were angered by the city’s claim that water leaks, theft or billing contractor errors were responsible for the high bills in a fraction of the city’s 20,000 water accounts.
