NOTICE IS HEREBY GIVEN that a meeting held on the 13th day of March, 2018, the Town Board of the Town of Germantown, Columbia County, New York, duly adopted a resolution, an abstract of which follows, which resolution is subject to a permissive referendum pursuant to Section 209-e of the Town Law of the State of New York.


Said resolution authorizes the establishment of an Extension to the existing Germantown Sewer District No. 1 in the Town, to add seven parcels of property to the existing District and to expand the District boundary in the Town of Germantown, Columbia County, New York.  No additional capital cost is proposed for the Extension to the Germantown Sewer District No. 1.  According to the Extension Report, the estimated total annual cost to the typical property within the Germantown Sewer District No. 1 and the Extension is $594.00 per unit.  Hook-up fees include a $15.00 permit and inspection and inspection fee plus the cost of construction of any required lateral connection.


The Extension is consolidated with the existing Sewer District No. 1.  The method of apportioning the costs of the Sewer District including the Extension is to assess the costs entirely against the lands benefitted area in just proportion to the amount of benefit which the improvement shall confer upon such lots of parcels.


Said resolution shall take effect thirty (30) days after adoption, unless there shall be filed with the Town Clerk a petition signed and acknowledged by the owners of taxable property situate in Sewer District No. 1 or proposed Extension thereof, as shown on the latest completed assessment roll of said Town, in number equal to at least five percent (5%) of the total number of such owners, or one hundred (100) of such owners, whichever is the lesser, protesting against this resolution and requesting that the matter be submitted to the owners of taxable real property situate in said Sewer District No. 1 and proposed Extension at a referendum in the manner provided by Town Law.


A copy of the resolution is available for public inspection during normal business hours at the Office of the Town Clerk located at Germantown Town Hall, 50 Palatine Park Road, Germantown, New York.
