Trustee and Commissioner for DPW, Angela DeLillo, provided an update on DPW regarding erratic Suez water bills, pursuant to complaints from some Manor residents. She has been working with Adam Kagan, Trustee of the Village of Pelham, and together they’ve met with Suez. The water company did an evaluation of historical usage over the past 18 months, provided graphing, and prepared individual reports for residents. The components of the bill are: 1. Consumption; 2. Unit Cost, which is fixed and set by the state; and 3. Fees, also fixed and set by the state.
“We continue to work with Suez on this matter. We are focusing on consumption. We want a definitive number, and will go back to people who reached out to us,” said Trustee DeLillo.
According to the Village Treasurer Report, the Manor is on-track for budget this year. “We are in good shape on the expense side and on revenue through our tracking -- much better than anticipated,” according to Village Manager John Pierpont.
There was a proposal for a driving range screen/nylon safety net, that is the result of legal action between the Pelham Country Club and neighboring buildings that claim to be suffering damage from errant golf balls. For next steps, the proposal will be sent to the Planning Board for review and ultimately modification.
Trustee Joe Senerchia requested a revised rendering (plus side view) to show how close the fence would be to the property line and buildings there on Boston Post Road. The Planning Board would need such drawings as well.
