Cared, anxious, distressed. All emotions shared by many of the neighbors including myself on Nolan Road in the town of Ballston, concerning the April 18 vote to have sewers, which will result in a mandated hookup for everyone on certain roads.
Unfortunately, Nolan Road is one of the few needing grinder pumps, which will result in a hookup fee of close to $10,000 along with an additional sewer tax of $926 per year for 30 years.
Many are terrified if this passes they will not be able to afford to live in our peaceful community and will lose their homes.
As 77-year old, 52-year resident of Nolan Road has asked: “Where will I go when I cannot afford the hookup or yearly fee of $926? Who will take me in?”
This is why I am voting no on April 18.
