Pittsford Sewer Board Meeting
September 6, 2006           

Thomas “Hank” Pelkey opened the meeting at 7:55 PM.  Sewer Board members present were:  Thomas “Hank” Pelkey, Allen Hitchcock, Joseph Gagnon, David Markowski, and Thomas Hooker.  Also present were Michael Balch, Linda Drummond, and Tom Carrara.


     The Sewer Board minutes of August 16, 2006 were reviewed, discussed, & approved.

Consider Nondisclosure agreement

     David Cleary of the law office of Cleary Shahi & Aicher sent a proposed Non-disclosure Agreement for review and signature regarding the disclosure of documents to Green Mountain Engineering.  The Board approved M. Balch’s signature on the agreement.

     Allen Hitchcock inquired on the status of Lois Blittersdorf’s sewer line.  M. Balch had spoken to Bonnie Hawley, L. Blittersdorf’s daughter, and had explained that the Town would need a right of way across L. Blittersdorf’s backyard property to hook up the sewer from the back of the house.  Discussion was held as to how to proceed.  The Board agreed that a letter of intent and an agreement with L. Blittersdorf for the right of way across her backyard for the sewer line was the next step.  L. Blittersdorf would be responsible for the expenses for the hook up to the Town sewer inside the house and to the right of way outside the house.

     Upon reviewing the 2006 Vermont Municipal Water  and Sewer Rate Information booklet complied by Vermont League of Cities & Towns in May 2006, A. Hitchcock did not find Pittsford listed in the booklet.  M. Balch did not know when the information was requested from VLCT for the information booklet. The water and sewer billing is sent out twice a year.  For each billing, the Pittsford water rates are $75.00/unit plus any overage usage over 2000 cu. feet; Florence water rate $100.00/unit; and sewer rates are $250.00/  unit.  Sewer stormwater surcharge is $350.00/yr. billed two a year at $175.00.  Fifty new water meters are in stock to be installed this Fall to replace non-working meters.

With no further business, the Sewer Board adjourned at 8:05PM.

Respectfully submitted:


Linda Drummond, Recording Clerk          

Thomas “Hank” Pelkey, Chair

Allen Hitchcock, Vice-Chair  

Dave Markowski, Selectman
