The Bedford Town Board will hold a public hearing tonight on a proposal to extend the Consolidated Water District so that the Roosevelt Drive area is included.
Forty-four parcels would be added to the district under the proposal, according to the town's report that's included in the agenda packet. This equals 44 acres.
The water district, which serves Bedford Hills and Katonah, is for about 7,000 people, the report states. This includes 1,847 residential connections and 288 connections that are commercial.
The cost of extending water into the area is currently estimated at $977,611.25, an amount that would be paid off over a 30-year period and with an interest rate assumed to be 2.9 percent. Roosevelt Drive customers who choose to use the water would have to pay for the cost, plus water purchasing and taxes.
The hearing starts tonight at 7:30 p.m. at the town house in Bedford Hills. A report on the proposal can be found at this link.
