Council eyes sewer meeting with county

GLOVERSVILLE – Common Council members want Fulton County representatives to talk to the council about the creation of a regional water and sewer system.

City officials said at a council meeting Tuesday they would like county representatives to come speak at a future meeting about the proposal.

“We received a letter saying they wanted to partner, but we still haven’t heard anything from them,” First Ward Councilwoman Robin Wentworth said.

Mayor Dayton King said he would like them to present some type of proposal for the city to consider.

“They are pushing but not jumping,” King said about the county’s regional effort.

Casale said the fact the supervisors passed the resolution endorsing the system without investigating where the water is going to come from was “extraordinarily nearsighted.”

Wentworth said the only “no” vote on the Board of Supervisors came from Gloversville 5th Ward Supervisor Gregory Young.

The mayor said he will speak to county officials to see if they will speak at a city meeting in the future.
