I just had a person-to-person meeting with George Thomas (the town of Stevensville’s ex-public works director). According to George in order for the Town of Stevensville to have enough water/sewer for the proposed Burnt Fork Development it would need to do the following:
Add water capacity storage tank.
Purchase land to put the storage tank on.
Add another service line from the storage tanks to the town.
Add 1-2 well houses.
Add another lift station.
Add (1) two new water wells.
The total cost of these upgrades would be estimated at between $3-4-million dollars!!.
(George’s estimates) Will the developers pay for these upgrades? Or will the town’s taxpayers be left to foot the bill if this is approved? Please plan attend the upcoming public hearings/council meetings regarding the Burnt Fork Development.
