A letter to the editor from Town Moderator Phillip Gallagher.
Thursday, December 13, 2012
The following is a letter to the editor: I have number of concerns regarding the proposal to petition the state for 10 new liquor licenses. Restaurants and bars along with hotels and hospitals are enormous generators of sewer effluent. Although the force main is soon to be completed that project will not create any additional sewer capacity. We are at the end of the sewer line and the communities downstream are just as busy as we are trying to build. How long will it be before we return to sewer surcharging as a regular event?
