After exploring several options for necessary capital
improvements at the Sherburne Wastewater District #1 Wastewater
Treatment Facility, the governing body of the District, the
Prudential Committee, opted to go forward with a bond vote on
November 1 asking registered voters living in the Sherburne Fire
District #1 to consider a $1.1 million bond for necessary
The District's so-called "Minimum Recommended Improvements Project"
addresses operational problems including influent pumps and rail
systems; clarifier piping issues; RBC covers, stop gates, effluent
weir gates and effluent trough; and effluent flow
The refined project, which includes only those work items most
critically needed for continued successful operation of the Fire
District's existing wastewater treatment plant, would cost owners
of Fire District Equivalent Residential Units (ERUs) an additional
$68 per ERU per year.
The November 1 bond vote allows for design and bidding over the
winter for construction in the summer of 2012.
More information about the project is available on the Town of
Killington's website under Community Organizations/Sherburne Fire
District. Members of the Prudential Committee, Red Glaze, Chris
Karr, David Rosenblum, Ken Root and Domenic Chiarella, are also
good sources of information about the proposed project.
