Intermunicipal agreement good for both parties, Holley officials say

By on June 23, 2014

On June 2, 2014 an Intermunicipal agreement between the Village of Holley and the Village of Albion for a full service contract to operate the Wastewater Treatment Facilities in Holley was enacted. The scope of the agreement provides a win-win situation for both communities, according to Holley officials. The Village of Albion receives needed revenue for operations, while Holley will save approximately $30,000 in operating expenses budget.

The Village of Albion will provide personnel qualified in technical, laboratory, administrative management duties on a 24/7 basis. This will satisfy New York and federal regulatory requirements regarding wastewater treatment operations and maintenance.

This initiative was the result of conversations and meetings orchestrated by Holley Trustees Brian Sorochty, Donald Penna, and David Dill with Chief Operator Rich Albright of Albion’s Pollution Control Facility. In May 2014, both boards met to discuss the parameters of an agreement between the villages. This joint venture may eventually lead to additional cost-saving services between the two villages. These financial initiatives are in line with Governor Cuomo’s savings through cooperative activities and shared services.
