Last fall, the Town of Springwater voted to have a new sewer project at a cost of over $3 million dollars, largely paid for by grants. The Town put in a sewer system a few years ago, but it doesn’t work, so a new one is being planned, for about 250 units. Unfortunately, there are still a lot of unsigned easements, which are needed for the project to begin.
Said Supervisor Deborah Babbit-Henry at the July 16 town board meeting,, “Jade (Perkins) and Pat (Willsea) and I have been getting easements. We need to bid the sewer project by Aug. 1 and award the bid by Sept. 1, or we lose the funding….3.5 million dollars. I spent a whole day down here on easements that need more than we can do.….so we are sending them to Hunt Engineers and Attorney James Campbell, who will be putting the bid in the paper.”
In other news, the board heard a report on the Springwater Community Gala, which will be held on Sunday, Aug. 11 this year, at Larry J. Canute Memorial Park. At 7 a.m., there’s a pancake and egg breakfast from 7-10 a.m. and a chicken barbeque from 11 a.m. until gone. From 9-3p.m. there is a classic car show, as well as antique tractor pulls. Country Line Dancing starts at 10 a.m.-11;300 a.m., followed by Country Rain, playing from noon to 3 p.m. Food booths will also be at the park.
