Brasher, Stockholm mulling use of DANC for water project


WINTHROP — The Brasher and Stockholm town boards are moving ahead with a proposed joint water district, but they must decide if they’ll seek the help of the Development Authority of the North Country.

The boards met in a joint session this week, joined by DANC Director of Engineering Carrie M. Tuttle, engineer Timothy A. Burley from C2AE, Canton, and Public Health Engineer Ronald E. Sheppard from the state Department of Health

Mr. Burley, who has been working with the towns on the proposal that would set up a water district in the hamlets of Brasher Falls and Winthrop, said he felt it was time to draw from DANC’s expertise to move the project forward.

“They’ve been very successful in bringing extra money in to infrastructure or projects,” Mr. Burley said. The towns would be better served if DANC was leading the effort because of a public perception that the local engineering firm would be too closely tied to the project, he said.

Ms. Tuttle said she will be available after June 6.

Both boards plan to decide at their next session if they’ll engage the services of DANC.
