Bristol councilors, BCWA to discuss Poppasquash water line project tonight


The Bristol Town Council is hosting a special meeting at the Burnside Building tonight, Jan. 9 at 7 to discuss the viability of the Poppasquash water line project.

Previous reports indicated that a cost-share of the project would hold Bristol accountable for an additional $300,000 for a new 8-inch pipe.

The Bristol County Water Authority's cost share would be about $460,000.

Town Councilors please read this:

If any of my tax money is used to build pipes on Poppasquash, then I want to be able to ride my bicycle to the southern tip of the peninsula whenever I want.

If the property owners want to keep the area private, then they can fund the pipeline with their own private dollars.

Fair is fair, boys and girls.

They wont listen though......

Frame it as "economic development" or a green initiative and maybe you will get someone to listen....
