Ripley Town Board OKs Review For Wastewater Project


RIPLEY — At their regular meeting Feb. 10, Ripley Town Board members approved three resolutions pertaining to an engineering planning grant the town received for its wastewater collection system study.

Council members passed resolutions to approve the Environmental Assessment Form and to initiate a State Environmental Quality Review for the project.

Town Supervisor Doug Bowen told council members that Ripley has been selected to receive up to $30,000 for the study project. A resolution was passed authorizing Bowen to enter into a grant agreement.

A local match, not to exceed $6,000 is required for the grant, Bowen said. The town match will come from American Rescue Plan Act funds and/or in-kind services. The board approved a resolution for the town match, and, if necessary, for Bowen to increase the local match with in kind services, following approval by the board.
