Mayoral reply to recent news broadcast

Ms. Emily Lampa WGRZ Investigative Reporter Your August 9 story about our water system was much too short to deal with all the issues raised. I’m sorry you did not return for the 7:30 meeting as many of these issues could have been clarified. 1) Safety: Village residents have used the same water source for 120 years with no adverse health issues. Per our 2017 Water Quality Report there are no deficiencies.
