Once again, on July 1, 2017, town residents suffered severe stormwater damage. The room in Butler Hall was packed with homeowners, mainly from the Chadwicks area of town, and they were there to ask what the town plans to do to alleviate their problems.
I previously posted the last part of the July 12th meeting (after most of the residents left) with the town supervisor bullying the town board to adopt a resolution to use "piggy-backing" on the Oneida County bid list instead of re-bidding for the Grange Hill Project as required by law.
Unfortunately, (it's hard to believe that the town supervisor and attorney didn't know) the county bids cannot be used and the project is once again under review. Had the town supervisor done what he should have done instead of trying to send work to his buddy; the project could have gone out for another bid which could have been opened in time for acceptance at the August 9, 2017 meeting. But that's another story...you can read about it in my previous two blogs.
At any rate, the town website has an announcement that one (1) appointed and two (2) elected representatives are holding an informational meeting at the Willowvale Fire Dept. tomorrow at 6:00 p.m. to "discuss stormwater issues in the Town of New Hartford".
Who knows what plans await everyone this time; but the town supervisor did sell a $900,000 bond anticipation note to be used for the Grange Hill Project...when the bidding is finally done properly.
The meeting is open to the public.
For further information; please contact Town Supervisor Patrick Tyksinski at 315.733.7500 EXT. 2332

Town residents should vote for Supervisor Tyksinski on September 12th, WHY???
