"He said the Bellows Falls trustees have the authority to approve a plan and users in that village will probably not have a chance to weigh in on the proposal"

Why would BF taxpayers not have a vote? If I still lived in the village I would personally not be all that eager to take on the additional wear and tear on the BF facility to bail out Saxons River. Its not like it will lower the sewer or tax rates in the village at all.

yep that’s right bond our kids futures for decades to come and the trustees don’t need the voters approval...sounds like another trans-Canada fleecing of taxpayers dollars...
with the exception of Obie & White who have some degree of intellect and rationale process the dumb & dumber boys along with Miss Nice Guy are right out to lunch..

The current users of the wastewater treatment plant should not bear any cost for Saxtons River's extension & hook-ups for our services. We are not the ones who need it. Saxtons River is very fortunate that we have the plant that is capable of receiving their wastewater, as is the case with Westminster & Walpole. The interim manager should be saying that it will NOT cost the current users ANY additional funds. Saying otherwise should be questioned by the trustees.

.......the plant can more than handle it and in fact with the new upgrade
needs the income to pay off the question is WHY WAS IT ALL
DONE BEHIND CLOSED DOORS.........when we were(LAST YEAR) discussing things
with SR we had them out in the open....and the vote sure was in the
open........I don't know, maybe I'm missing something here, but this
wasn't something that put either village at jeopardy......I think someone
should look into this......once one saw, no one heard, no one
spoke from the public..........and one knows,,,,OH YEA

it is a good deal for bf, it will allow for others from saxtons to bf to hook on and create more revenue with the new standards for septic systems nd failing ones, and it will give bf more methane gas and if used right should heat all the building in the bf plant, now if they could make a composting plant and use or sell the compost like claremont does instead of paying them to take the sludge
