Tivoli Sewer Plant Replacement Project Public Forum 1/24 6:30PM

To all users of the Tivoli Sewer System,

The Village Board of Trustees and the Dutchess County Water and Wastewater Authority will hold an important public information forum on the Wastewater Treatment Plant Replacement Project on Tuesday January 24th at 6:30PM on the 3rd floor of Village Hall. The purpose of this forum is to provide maximum information about this project to those who are served by the facility.

Also present on the 24th will be a representative from Wright-Pierce, the engineering firm who is designing the new sewer plant and pump station.

The forum will be structured thusly:

  • A short description of the Dutchess County Water and Wastewater Authority.

 

  • A brief history of the Tivoli sewer system and its components: the plant, the collection system, and the pump station.

 

  • A report of the existing, aged plant and related infrastructure, and the noncompliance events and SPDES permit exceedances which require that it be replaced.

 

  • A description of the new plant’s design/technology, why it’s needed, and how it will be an improvement.

 

  • An explanation of the cost of the new plant.

 

  • Discussion of the collaborative effort to secure various funding sources to help pay for this.

 

  • A question-and-answer period.

The Tivoli Wastewater Treatment Plant is going to be completely replaced within the next 24 months and it is going to be expensive. I urge anyone who has questions about this critical project to attend this informational forum.

A workshop meeting of the Village Board of Trustees was held on August 13, 2014 at Village Hall, Tivoli, NY. Mayor Cranna called the
meeting to order at 6:15 pm.
Present: Mayor Cranna, Trustee Bruno, Trustee Schneider
Public: Robert Lachman
Absent: Deputy Mayor Griffith and Trustee Ezrati
On a motion by Trustee Schneider, seconded by Trustee Bruno, the date for the public hearing to hear suggestions for CDBG
application 2015 was set for September 17, 2014 at 7:00 pm at Village Hall, 86 Broadway, Tivoli, New York, all in favor.
On a motion by Trustee Bruno, seconded by Trustee Schneider, the bid for the CHIPs project was awarded to Arold Construction
Company, Inc., Kingston, New York, all in favor.
On a motion by Trustee Schneider and seconded by Trustee Bruno, the Village of Tivoli agrees to pay $2,086.50 (attorney line) to the
Harris Smith American Legion Post for costs incurred during the land transfer between the Village and the American Legion Post, all in
favor. It was noted by Mayor Cranna and Trustees Schneider and Bruno that during the time the elevator at the Village Hall was not
operational, the American Legion hosted the Village government in their hall at no fee for nearly a year. The amount payable to the
Legion seemed fair for the service provided by the American Legion. Mayor Cranna stated that a previous agreement between the
Village and the American Legion in the late 1990’s stated that the Village would take on said costs should this transfer occur. Mayor
Cranna went on to state that the most recent agreement stated that the Legion would cover their costs. Again, considering the Legion’s
assistance to the Village during the time the elevator was not operational, payment of these costs seemed fair and applicable.
Respectfully submitted,
Bryan F. Cranna
Mayor
