WWTP Upgrade Project Abstract:
In regards to the claims there was a question as to why the check to Edge Civil Corporation was for $78,000 while the VFW Sewer Extension Grant was for $75,000. Village Administrator John Power stated that the amount was increased due to the fact that we had to move the project further back from the edge of NY RT 3 in order to get NYS DOT approval. This move involved work easements, an additional manhole and paving for the Agency Specialist driveway.
Reports were given by Mayor Grimshaw for the Zoning/Code Enforcement Officer; John Power gave reports for Village Administrator, and Water & WWTP Superintendent.
