Are We Ever Going to Have a Sewer System The response to the Open Informational Meeting held last Wetinesday at the Town Hall regarding the waste- water issue was poor. Pres- ent were Supervisor Smith, Town Clerk, Millie Rhoades, Councilmen Chatland, Cushman, Jock and Lau- zon, Town Assessor, Mar- ion Elliott, Ron Lauzon, Ben Tarbell and William Lewis. Engineering Fees Again William Lewis reiterated many of the arguments heard around the town. How many more engineer- ing fees are we going to have to pay? Smith countered that during the nine years of his administration, the engi- neering and architectural 'fees have been paid through grants. The $13,000.00 which was the issue of dis- cussion for the archaelogicaH, survey, will not be reim\ completed. \It's a gamble,\ said Chatland. However, if the study is not completed, the funding will be gone and the project will be finished. r It won t pass \Cet me make it clear, said Bill Lewis, \that I am for the sewer but I just don't #ink it will pass. The idea has to be sold.\ All present agreed. A suggestion was made that a spokesman talk to the senior citizens since many are on fixed incomes and feel threatened by the pro- posed users fee. The users fee includes operational and maintenance costs which would have to be extracted from those in the water dis- trict (technically, the lighting district). The projected fee is $250.00 per year and many fear the amount will increase with time. Millie Rhoades suggested that the younger residents actively campaign for the sewerage system since their future will be affected. John Lauzon stated that many, like himself, are not in the district \but what happens in Fort Covington affects us. Look around, the town is dying,\ he emphasized. Marion Elliott added that a sewage system would be needed to attract business and industry which would, in effect, help with the tax base. 'Free Ride\ Another problem said John Lauzon \seems to be that many people want a free ride. They want to wait until the state or federal • government comes in and does the work for them.\ Residents would do well to examine this- misconcep- tion. First of all, no matter who installs the system, they are not going to pay the users fee. Residents will still be liable for that part and who knows by what terms? Secondly, the way the fund- ing is presently designed, the state and federal governments are installing the system. As it stands, the federal and state financing is approximately 85%. Last week, Smith informed, another 10% was added by the passage of a bill in the House and Senate under the Innovative Testing Pro- gram. Indications are very strong that this type of fund- ing will not be available in the future. Raw Sewage Another problem, noted Ben Tarbell, is that people are presently dumping raw sewage into the river and paying nothing. We reiterate Cushman's comment, \that kind of activHty helps no one.\ Some discussion cen- tered around what other towns are doing. Smith noted the expansion expe- rienced by Norfolk since the installation of their sewage system. Several days later, Ben Tarbell submitted an estimated user fee cost in Norwood and Waddington. The former has a users fee of $420.00 yearly ($35.00) per month on a system which is approximately 10 years old. Waddington resi- dents pay $329.00 yearly ($27.42) per month on a sys- tem approximately 121 to 15 years old. The board voted 3 to 1 (Phil Jock in opposition) to study and related expenses appropriate the $13,000.00 to continue the project, to finance the archaelogical (PWM) A J Ceramics Chateaugay St ciim/Tmn/ in JULY/me Fr.

MAGNIFICENT MONOCHROMES Ah, spring. Flowers .. . mud puddles ... colored eggs ... and new spring clothes. If you're on a budget and can't afford to replace your old spring wardrobe with a 1985 edition, try this trick from fashion designer Gabriele Knecht. Knecht recommends building your wardrobe around one color. Knecht's own all-white collection of clothes won her the 1984 More Fashion Awards, an event spon- sored by More cigarettes for new designers. Knecht says one color makes a \stronger more coherent state- ment. Fdr example, there is noth- ing more stunning than an all-ivory outfit,\ she says. A PALACE $r•'•+ * * i~ * * t.
