Blind Slough and Scow Bay utility projects to be on ballot this fall
July 22, 2021
The Borough Assembly unanimously approved ordinance #2021-12 which will place the approval of funding the Blind Slough and Scow Bay utility projects on the fall ballot for voter approval.
The 5-0 vote saw the next step in the process of approving $7.8 million in revenue bonds to be used for the Blind Slough Hydroelectric Refurbishment Project and the Scow Bay Generation Design Study. According to Utility Director Karl Hagerman, the revenue bonds will help replace virtually all the equipment in the powerhouse at Crystal Lake along with many mechanical systems including the generator.
