Supervisor Bob Hayssen, R-Varick, came to Tuesday’s Seneca County Board of Supervisors Public Works Committee meeting with a new proposal for a study of sanitary sewer system expansion in the south end of the county.
He was hoping for committee support in the form of approving a motion to appropriate $30,000 in county funds, plus disbursements, for the study by Hunt Engineers of Rochester, passing it on to the full board for a vote Nov. 14.
Hayssen said the preliminary engineering report (PER) on upgrades to the three south end wastewater treatment plants by Barton & Loguidice Engineers of Syracuse can continue. He said Hunt could examine the expansion-of-sewer issue as a separate contract.
He went way unhappy.
The committee did not support his plan. Committee chairman Don Trout, R-Waterloo, said he is willing to work on seeing the sewer expansion study done. “But I want it done legally,” he said.
