Melanie Lekocevic is reporting for Capital Region Independent Media the Coeymans Town Board voted July 8 to approve a resolution that would approve an analysis of the proposal to provide water and sewer service to three properties in the town's industrial area. “I have been talking to the village of Ravena since last October or November, and also the property owners on Route 144 going out of the hamlet, just outside of the sewer district — the Port of Coeymans, the Biers industrial property and the JAT Construction property, as well as the Coeymans Industrial Park,” Town Supervisor George McHugh said. "...It never has been formalized, so we have been talking since last year about redefining our water and sewer districts so it would include the rest of the industrial properties.” If approved, the project would extend water and sewer lines into the Route 144 industrial corridor, he said. Under a resolution adopted unanimously by the town board, the town’s engineering firm of Barton and Loguidice will conduct a feasibility assessment for the water district at a cost of $4,500, and a map, plan and report for an additional $3,800. The cost of the engineering reports and the extension of the lines would be paid for by the property owners, McHugh said. “This is all being funded by those three property owners who have all committed to sharing equally in this cost,” he said.
