Mitchell’s Tees Water Permit Application

T. Mitchell described plans for water connection to new building.  The Water Board reviewed the blueprint as submitted.  The print requires replacement of 1” line to a 1 1/2” line from the curb stop to the existing building.  T. Mitchell stated this change had been deleted on later plans and will verify with the State.  Updated details of this plan will be submitted.  T. Mitchell and the Water Board discussed preferred method for the new buildings water connection.  The new building will have a separate line running from the curb stop to the south end of the new building.  A meter and remote will be installed in the new building.  The Water Board approved the permit application upon receipt of new drawing to clarify the 1” to 1 ½” line discrepancy.


T. Mitchell requested refund of tapping fee if this process isn’t necessary.  Permit fees and requirements will be reviewed to determine if a refund should be granted.


Four Seasons Lane Project

H. McKinlay will contact P. Kulig on status of the Rosoff right of way required for the Four Seasons Lane upgrade.  The State has requested an engineering drawing and consultant’s signature on the Town of Pittsford’s Construction Permit prior to State review.  C. Hanrahan will contact T. Nesbitt to determine the best means to accomplish this quickly so that the project can move forward this summer.



In accordance with 1VSA 312(b) where premature general public knowledge would clearly place the Municipality or person involved at a substantial disadvantage, the Board unanimously agreed to go into executive session for Contracts at 7:45 P.M. The Water Board came out of executive session at 8:15 P.M.  No action was taken at this time.



Water Tank Inspections

B. Babcock informed the Water Board Dave Hathaway will soon be able to inspect the inside of water tanks with a camera rather than a diver.  B. Babcock stated the Florence tank now has been damaged by ice.  Repair options were discussed and B. Babcock will stay in contact with D. Hathaway to schedule required inspections.



B. Tinker is scheduled to blaze and paint the Town’s property line at Parker’s.  B. Babcock will discuss this with Dave Parker and request he contact B. Tinker to discuss locations so fencing of property can begin.  H. McKinlay will verify B. Tinker invoices for scope of work and payments.
