The Town of Sangerfield is close to giving the building permit and final approval for the solar panel farm on Brothertown Road.
At last week’s Town Board meeting conducted remotely, Planning Board Chairman Paul Gallagher said NextEra expects to start construction shortly after March 1. He said the company plans to have the 26-acre site fully operational by October.
In other town business, Town Supervisor Jeff Reynolds outlined the funding for this summer’s Waterville-Sangerfield Summer Rec program.
Oneida County has indicated no funding will be provided as in years past. Sangerfield still had $7,500 from last year’s budget and budgeted the same for this year.
Combined with the village’s funding, Reynolds said the program can run this summer in some form, although without swimming. “It won’t be as nice a program but it will be something,’’ he said.
During the meeting the Board also made appointments for 2021 to town committees. Planning Board: Brian Barnes, chair; Bill Fredericks; Liz Barnes; Jeff Kellogg and Brian Cossette; Zoning Board of Appeals: Paul Gallagher, chair; Mary Campbell; Rocco Padula; Gary Siver; Grievance Board: Don Brown, II; Dennis Salm; Mabel Bushee.
Keith Jones was appointed deputy supervisor of the town’s Highway Department…
