Well guess what was buried in the Utica Observer Dispatch, Friday, January 3, 2014
NOTICE IS HEREBY GIVEN that the County Legislature of the County of Oneida, New York, will meet at the County Office Building, in Utica, New York, in Oneida, New York, on January 15, 2014, at 1:45 o'clock P.M., Prevailing Time, for the purpose of conducting a public hearing in relation to the proposed $4,000,000 increased cost of the increase and improvement of the facilities of the Oneida County Sewer District in said County, consisting of the North Utica Interceptor improvements at a new maximum estimated cost of $15,630,000. The revised estimated annual cost to the typical property owner in said Sewer District as a result thereof is $5.36 for a single family home and $8.04 for a two family home.Existing sewer users did not then and do not now need this project to treat their sewage. Now the cost of an additional $4,000,000 is being dumped onto them in the name of "economic development." Your water bills are going up some more!
Dated: Utica, New York, December 30, 2013.
This is a project that will benefit new users who, as yet, do not exist. It should be paid for entirely by those who will benefit from it.
