Goal: Repair Aging Sewer Plant

SEWARD BRINGS

$2M TO VILLAGE

State Sen. Jim Seward, R-Milford, enters the Cooperstown Village Board meeting room this morning, where he announced a $2 million grant to help repair the half-century-old water treatment plant on the Susquehanna River. Seward’s $2 million comes two months after Assemblyman Bill Magee, D-Nelson, announced another $2 million grant for the project.  Mayor Jeff Katz said, with the help of Otsego Now COO Sandy Mathes, another $3.5 million state Enviromental Facilities Corp. grant may be forthcoming in the spring, plus a zero-percent, 30-year loan, that will save another half-million. This should allow the project to be done with no hike to rate users, particularly important to Bassett Hospital, whose bill covers 30 percent of the sewer revenues.
