CANAJOHARIE -- Montgomery County Sanitary District 1 Chairman James Post approached the Canajoharie Village Board during Tuesday's meeting to discuss a joint $38,000 grant awarded to the two agencies in Nov., 2013, aimed at funding an efficiency study that will take a detailed look at the current sanitary systems in Nelliston and Canajoharie.

A request for proposals has been put out seeking an engineering firm to do the study. The proposals are due March 12. The sanitary district board of directors is scheduled to hold their monthly meeting on March 15, at which time they plan to determine which engineering firm to either use, or interview with the goal of beginning the study.

Post also spoke about a memorandum of understanding that both agencies will be required to sign, noting stipulations, including the fact that the chairman of the district shall settle a dispute, should it arise.

Canajoharie Mayor Francis Avery informed Post that he, along with village board members, would be in attendance during the March 15 meeting.

After putting out a request for proposals for engineering work regarding a water line project that will likely take place throughout the village this summer, nine proposals were received, with many firms submitting competitive bids.

As part of the requirements to get a modification of water withdrawal permit in the village's dealings with C.G. Roxane, they will be required to re-bury a water line running underneath Church St. from the New York State Thruway overpass to Erie Blvd. five feet deep. The current line is buried about one foot below the sidewalk.

Also encompassed in the engineering is planning work for a water line located in the vicinity of Roosevelt's, running from Route 5S to Mohawk St., that the village will connect to the Church St. line, creating a looped system.

The village board awarded the bid to McDonald Engineering, at a cost not to exceed $46,000. The firm will only charge for work completed, and the engineering costs could potentially be less than anticipated.

Once the engineering is complete, bids will go out for the work. The goal is to complete the work this summer over an estimated 18 time period.
