At the Public Hearing the Town will describe the types of grant assistance available from the New York State Office for Small Cities and will present a proposed program amendment to project #1159HR16-05. That program is a $266,000 project to assist homeowners in the Glenerie Water District with grants to connect to the public water system. The Town has completed that project and there is an unobligated balance of approximately $16,000. The program amendment proposes to transfer unobligated funds to the East Kingston Water District to provide similar grants to assist homeowners in that neighborhood connect to the public water system.
If the program amendment is approved lateral connection grants would be offered in the East Kingston Water District in the summer of 2007 and would be completed by the end of 2007. At the public hearing the Town will solicit public comments prior to submission of the program amendment to the Office for Small Cities during July 2007.
Residents may submit views at the hearing or in written form to Nicky B. Woerner, Ulster Town Supervisor, Ulster Town Hall, 1 Town Hall Drive, Lake Katrine.
