Sewer plan is best option for Ballston

first_imgCategories: Letters to the Editor, Opinion I have been concerned with the lack of a discussion of alternatives to the proposed Ballston sewer project.On April 10, I met with the project manager and engineering company representative and was provided detailed analysis reports. Multiple options were considered, including much larger projects along Route 50 that could not succeed without substantial guaranteed development on that road, even though the per-unit cost of these alternatives could be less than the proposed alternative. Another consideration was to make the project larger along the west and north (e.g., Goode Street corridor). It was determined the cost of installing the additional necessary infrastructure would not result in lower costs.  The size of the proposed district is constrained by lower and upper limits in the design requirements in sizing the sewer pipes. Once the maximum is reached, enlarging the pipe in the district would be economically unfeasible.The method of distributing district construction costs is constrained by state law, including a very specific definition of the benefit received. Also, the existence of small sewer districts already in the town has a material effect on how the costs can legally be distributed. Because of its combined suburban/rural physical nature, the entire town will never have sewers throughout.A public hearing on a proposed sewer law is scheduled for May 8. The draft contains some exemptions to converting to the sewers, including a financial hardship, extension to convert for recent septic systems, and a distance from the sewer district piping.I believe the team has done a fair and reasonable job trying to establish a long-term solution for the issues of aging septic systems, dealing with the problems in the Route 50 business area, protection of the environment and an upper limit in growth.Al PirigyiBurnt HillsMore from The Daily Gazette:EDITORIAL: Thruway tax unfair to working motoristsEDITORIAL: Urgent: Today is the last day to complete the censusFoss: Should main downtown branch of the Schenectady County Public Library reopen?EDITORIAL: Beware of voter intimidationEDITORIAL: Find a way to get family members into nursing homeslast_img read more

Budget cuts will hurt the sick and children

first_imgJust like last year, the White House has released a national budget proposal that drastically slashes foreign aid. What does this money do?For starters, it ensures that millions of people get treatment for tuberculosis, which is currently the world’s biggest infectious killer. It helps babies get the medical care and nutrition they need to grow into healthy kids. It gives girls a chance to go to school.Cutting these programs would deny millions of people a future. This isn’t who we are.Congress knows it, which is why it fought back last year to stop the proposed cuts. They must do the same now.DARREN SKOTNES DelmarMore from The Daily Gazette:EDITORIAL: Beware of voter intimidationAlbany County warns of COVID increaseEDITORIAL: Thruway tax unfair to working motoristsFoss: Should main downtown branch of the Schenectady County Public Library reopen?EDITORIAL: Urgent: Today is the last day to complete the census Categories: Letters to the Editor, Opinionlast_img read more
