And the winner is....

the Town of New Hartford.

The D.E.C. agreed to waive 20% of the Consent Order fines...instead of the fines being paid to D.E.C., the Town of New Hartford will receive $30,000 for a local environmental beautification project!

Concerned Citizens remembers New Hartford Highway Superintendent Roger Cleveland commenting on this topic...however, Roger called it a "grant" at the town board meetings...no mention of D.E.C. and the Consent Order. Members of Concerned Citizens are always amazed at the difference between our recordings of the town board meetings and the approved minutes of those same meetings.

For the record, besides being Town of New Hartford Highway Superintendent, Mr. Cleveland is also on the Oneida County Sewer Advisory Committee and a member of the Sauquoit Creek Basin Inter-municipal Commission.

Don't miss reading Strikeslip's Consent Order (In)Justice.

Just what is needed in New Hartford...more impervious surfaces!
