PERSIA - The town of Persia might be one step closer to having a contract with the village of Gowanda for the water and sewer district.
The town received a draft contract from the village, Town Clerk Denise Trumpore said at the monthly meeting. According to Trumpore, Village Attorney Deb Chadsey sent a letter requesting the town to pay for the sewer which is partly funded by the state. Supervisor Mel LeBar asked why the town would have to pay, but the answer was unclear. The town will further discuss the matter at a later meeting.
The town first started discussing the water district in late 2009. Fourteen houses in the town which currently get their water from the village of Gowanda want to create their own district. These residences will be billed separately if the district is created.
The board approved Louise Hubbard to help with Assessor Mary Bailey and the town board announced they have started the budget process. The town also was cited for electrical violations by the New York State Labor Department, health and safety division. The town will have 30 days to fix the violations which were found in the basement and upstairs of the town hall once presented with the list.
