Extension of Saw Mill Sewer District- Meeting with County

Last Friday, staff and Council Member Ivy Pool met with Marion Pompa, from the Westchester County Department of Environmental Facilities about the County’s proposed extension of the Saw Mill Sanitary Sewer Trunk line up NYS Route 120 from Hunts Place to the first entrance of the Wagon Road Camp. The project is in the concept phase. The County has earmarked monies in the 2019 County Budget for engineering services to layout the new sewer. The County expects to issue an RFP for Engineering services for that layout this year, and with construction planned in 2021-2022. We will keep the Board and residents posted of the progress and also the proposed creations of other local sewer districts which can be constructed via connections to the trunk line in other locations.

Thank you to NCCMC!

Thanks to NCCMC for the purchase and installation of the new monitors upstairs and down stairs at Town Hall. These monitors scroll the calendar for Town Hall, contain a site directory, and alert readers to Town programs and other relevant information. We so appreciate their initiative and expertise in bringing 21st century technology to the Town.
