Bethany Town Board still waiting to hear from residents on public water issue

posted by Howard B. Owens in water, Bethany.

So far, only about 39 property owners within a proposed area for public water have contacted Town of Bethany officials to voice their opinion on the subject.

Carl Hyde, proponent of public water for that section of the Town of Bethany, said more people need to come forward if public water is to move forward.

Of the 225 property owners affected, 30 have said yes and nine no, but the sheer number of overall respondents is not enough for the project to proceed.

Hyde is asking that residents call 343-1399 and provide town officials with a yes or no opinion along with an address.

"The town board has done all they can to this point and so have I," Hyde said. "It's up to the people to voice an opinion."

Mr Spaulding,
The aprox.100 people that were at the informational meeting were told at the meeting they need to voice an answer to the town board. There has been plenty of coverage from the Batavian and other media forms. Plus I've been door to door on a couple occasions. I have told those that call me to pass the word so I hope they all get the hint to call 585-343-1399 and say YES or NO.
