Harrietstown to test for chloride leaching

Earlier in July, Harrietstown said it would not share a storage shed or pole barn at the village-owned site on Van Buren Street - leading some to believe that the town had no interest in collaborating with the village.

Miller clarified the town's stance last week.

"We have every intention of working with the village on this," he said. "But we want to do it at the town's site."

"We've been trying to work with the village to do a sand-salt shed together," Miller said. "I think this board, in the fall, will be looking at some type of proposal if we don't get our Green Innovation Grant in August, as to some way of covering or building a salt shed and maybe downsizing what we need to do if we have to go it alone - though we would rather share and work with the village to do that."

The federally funded Green Innovation Grant would give the town $800,000 to use toward the construction of a pole-barn or storage shed to cover sand and salt. The grant requires a 10 percent match, although Miller noted it can be fulfilled through in-kind services.

Miller added that the town already has the preliminary go-ahead from the Adirondack Park Agency for the potential construction of a storage facility.
