He said that work could begin in Masullo Estates before the end of this construction season.
"I'll be talking with the highway superintendent to see what we (the town) can do and what we can't do," said Tommasone.
Tommasone noted that the Masullo project could require bidding services, which would take some time. The town is also attempting to obtain ownership or an easement to a small parcel in Masullo Estates that would make the project easier, according to Tommasone.
The board's lone Democrat, John Silva, agreed that the Masullo project is a top town priority.
"We need to begin to take immediate steps in the summer and fall toward the reduction of drainage issues that have plagued residents for a long time," said Silva.
In other business, the board set a public hearing for 7 p.m., Wednesday, June 25, at Town Hall for the establishment of a sewer district extension to the proposed 261-unit Heldeberg Meadows neighborhood.
The developers of Heldeberg Meadows would fund the extension and any upgrades to the town's sewer plant, if approved.""
