Ballston plans water district consolidation

Officials say bevy of extensions too cumbersome

— After a lengthy discussion, the board elected to move forward with consolidating Water District 2 and its immediate extensions, and to determine how to consolidate the isolated extensions at a later date.

Also to be determined will be how to keep debt costs spread fairly across the entire district.

“It doesn’t have to be perfectly fair,” said Volpelak. “You as a board make that decision.”

Volpelak cautioned the board that they could not add any more extensions while they are in the process of consolidation.

The board decided to contract Volpelak and C.T. Male to write a grant application. Although the consolidation will be a lengthy process, board members expressed hope it will go smoothly.

“My desire is to find the fairest way to consolidate districts so that it is easily understood and administered,” said Councilman William Goslin.
