PUBLIC HEARING

8:00 P.M.

 

Establishment of Water District No. 4 – Town of Eden

 

            Supervisor Nellis explained that the public hearing is to receive input from the public pertaining to the establishment of Water District No. 4 as published in the Hamburg Sun, the official Town newspaper and also on file in the Town Clerk’s office.

            Supervisor Nellis then turned to John Reid of R & D Engineering to summarize the establishment of Water District No. 4.  Mr. Reid explained that Water District No. 4 would consist of parcels on Jennings Road to East Church Street to Kulp Road.  Kulp Road to Jennings over to Sandrock Road, Paxon Road from Sandrock Road and back to Jennings Road and Wepax Road with the exception of one house.  Mr. Reid also stated that the Water District required a pumping station near the intersection of Jennings Road and East Church Street and a 150,000-gallon standpipe at the upper elevation of Kulp Road.  The maximum amount to be spent is $1,860,000.00, the district is applying for a Rural Development Grant Loan combination and for homeowners the cost would approximately be $445.00 a year based on a 40% grant with an additional $160.00 for water to be purchased from the Erie County Water Authority totaling $605.00 per year. Mr. Reid also expressed that the $445.00 is low because the interest rate on the loans dropped last quarter and could be heading back up at the beginning of the year.  The final number could change.  He has filed the pre eligible determination with Rural Development and the next step is waiting for them to acknowledge the district and the availability of funds.  Mr. Reid also explained the petition received for Gary Drive, Mr. Reid proposed that on the final application that Gary Drive is made part of Water District No. 4 and it would not impact the cost.

            Frank Mantione of 2722 Kulp Road noticed that there are three scenarios listed on the map and Mr. Mantione asked Mr. Reid to explain why done that way.  Mr. Reid stated that at the time when getting into the project there were various possibilities and they all needed to be evaluated and were able to include the best price to establish the water district.  Mr. Mantione also expressed that he heard that a lot of people wanted the water and asked what the percentage was.  Mr. Reid stated 80% of properties total tax assessed value.  Mr. Reid also expressed that 80% was excellent for a district of the size that proposed Water District No. 4 would be. 

            Joyce Bischof of 2840 Paxon Road asked how long it would be to hear about the grant.  Mr. Reid explained that it could take anywhere between two to six months.

            John Bischof of 2840 Paxon Road asked if it would be possible to lock in the lower interest rate.  Mr. Reid answered “No” once a letter of commitment is received the interest rate is received and needs to be finalized with the grant application. 

            Chief Laing questioned Mr. Reid on whether an eight-inch pipe or twelve-inch pipe was being used.  Mr. Reid explained that an eight-inch pipe would be used.

            Mr. Bischof also asked if residents would be allowed to install their own piping.  Mr. Reid stated that residents would get diagrams from the contractors with the specs that are required to connect to the right of way line.

            Councilman Zittel asked Mr. Reid if it is specified to the exact distance between fire hydrants for it has been observed that the cost of the rental back to the community is going up and is quite a budgeted item, however Councilman Zittel felt that they are worth while items, he was not suggesting a change.  Mr. Reid explained that it is 500 to 600 feet between fire hydrants, however when the water lines are installed, “t-values” are placed for additional development of the area. Andrew Reilly, Town Engineer stated that a request can be made to extend to 1200 or 1500 feet and would have to prove that it is a rural area.  Councilman Zittel expressed that he would not want the responsibility except working with Emergency services and looking at the total Town.  He felt that the town should be alerted of the expense of fire hydrants.  Chief Laing noted that each fire truck carries 1000 feet of hose.

            Mrs. Bischof asked if it would be possible to begin project in the fall of 2000.  Mr. Reid answered that he is not sure for it depends on the acceptance of the proposed water district and once the pre-edibility is received then it can be determined when it would begin.
