Executive Director’s Report

  • Mr. Becher stated that he wanted to follow up on a question from Mr. Brodsky on how we go about seeking funds from the State and hiring firms to help put together applications. Mr. Brodsky has asked for legal opinions. Mr. Bobrow is putting together legal opinions, which is in draft form once that is complete we will bring it to the Board.
  • Mr. Becher wanted to thank Mr. Kane for bringing an issue to our attention. There was a fire on Maynard Road about two months ago. The local fire department had to run a considerable length of hose to get to the fire. They had a concern that there may not be enough fire hydrants up there. We put that through our Engineering Department and they determined that there is room to put more hydrants up there. We will be doing that work towards the end of the summer.

Meeting was adjourned at 5:20 PM.

Respectfully submitted,


Suzanne M. Harmon, Secretary
Mohawk Valley Water Authority
