Water and Sewage line improvements continue in Peru

— Timmons said the water and sewer department waited to submit the Locust Drive proposal to see what the cost of the project would be.

Timmons estimated the cost of adding 120 to 125 feet of pipe, setting a man hole, and running sewer lines to homes around it with labor would cost about $15,000. Timmons said he hopes to save the town money by having the town separately pay for materials.

“The infrastructure is old and we are trying to update it as best we can, so again we've been having a series of meeting with engineers and trying to get things done and find the money for it. We're going to look at floating a bond which of course the town is going to have to approve it, there will be a public meeting and if anybody voices concern about that we will address that concern. Otherwise we will work with the bond council,” Glushko said.

The board will make a decision about moving forward with the Locust Drive project at a tentative budget meeting and workshop on Oct. 4. The meeting will take place at 6:30 p.m. and the workshop will follow at 6:45 when the board will make a motion for lines and a motion to hire Darryl & Sons of Plattsburgh to continue work on the Locust Drive sewage line.
