Notice of Public Hearing-12/8/2021-Proposed Water Law

NOTICE IS HEREBY GIVEN pursuant to Section 20 of the Municipal Home Rule Law of the State of New York that a public hearing will be held by the Town Board of the Town of East Greenbush on December 8, 2021 at 6:00 p.m. at East Greenbush Town Hall, located at 225 Columbia Turnpike, Rensselaer, New York 12144, for the purpose of considering the adoption of Local Law No. 6 of 2021.  If adopted, Local Law No. 6 of 2021 would repeal Chapter 46B in its entirety, Local Law No. 7 of 2004 and Local Law No. 4 of 2021 and replace them with a new Chapter 46B to apply to the Consolidated Water District. The local law, among other provisions, provides that the capital costs of the water district will be established by for each parcel by multiplying the number of Equivalent Dwelling Units (EDU’s) for that parcel by a dollar amount determined by the Town Board. The Town Board will establish a schedule of assessment units which will set forth the number of EDU’s for each parcel.  Operation and maintenance expenses will be determined based upon water use. The rates for both these types of charges will be set by the Town Board, but any resolution setting or amending rates will be subject to a public hearing on at least 7 days’ notice. Written comments on Local Law No. 6 of 2021 can be submitted to the Town Clerk up and through the time of the public hearing. A copy of proposed Local Law No. 6 of 2021 can be obtained at the East Greenbush Town Hall and by clicking here.
