Vaccine Reservation (optional)
WTP

 
Dedication

Folks may not be aware, but Lake Properties, Inc. dedicated the land for the new Water Treatment Plant (WTP) and both tanks to the Borough at no cost.  The existing Cherry Lane tank was built on an easement but the property was still owned by Lake Properties.  The lot will be zoned commercial (C-G) consistent with its use.

We all thank the Smith Family (Ed, Chris, Kelly and Randy), the principals of Lake Properties and Northwinds Golf, for their continual support of the Borough and especially this project.
 
Construction

Closing on the PENNVEST loan, which will cover 70% of the total WTP cost, is on schedule for April 22nd.  After a pre-construction briefing on April 28th construction will begin in May, lasting one full year.  

For the most part, there will be very little disruption.  There will be some piping configuration changes necessary between Well 18B (Wenatchee) and South Shore Trail, along Seneca Path, and also along Palmer Drive near the southernmost intersection with Peninsula Drive.  No water service disruptions are envisioned; fingers crossed.
 
Payments

Per the PENNVEST terms, progress payments and billings apply.  Sharelines are 60 PENNVEST/40 Borough up to 80% project completion, and PENNVEST funding exclusively for the last 20%.  ALL PENNVEST funds expended begin accruing interest immediately and interest is withdrawn automatically, each month.  The Borough will deplete most of our cash reserves during this time.

Water bills were increased to $360 this year and will go to around $500 (~$40/mo) next year.  For this to work, the Borough must maintain an aggressive posture regarding late and non-payment, especially until our cash reserves can be replenished over time.  We have not had many problems historically, and we are thankful.
