During a recent Town Council meeting, officials decided to revoke the settlement offer and directed Town Attorney Donald Biggs to write and send a letter to Powers advising him of that decision.
“The town continues on with the process of eminent domain,” Glushko said. “The process will continue until Mr. Powers presents us with the signed easement agreement.”
WORK STOPPED FOR 2012
Powers, a former town councilor who in 2009 lost a bid for the supervisor’s seat to Glushko, said he believes the issue should have been solved months ago.
He does not believe the old sewer line needed repairs, he added; his system is working fine.
The recent decision to rescind the agreement offer will allow the town to close the job for the 2012 season and reduce the cost of the project by $8,600 for work that was not completed.
The town will hang onto those funds in anticipation of renewing the project in 2013.
