Town of Corning Consolidation EC 1 Water Planning Grant Project Update Minimize
4/2017- The Town Board has decided to move forward with the Consolidation of the Operations and Maintenance of the Gibson, Corning Manor, East Corning, East Corning 1 and East Corning 2 water Districts.  We have applied for an implementation grant through the NYS Department of State and the new water Rates will take effect October 1, 2017 and the new budget for EC Consolidated 1 Water District will take effect January 1, 2018.  The Town awaits hearing on the Grant application.

2/17/16 -Town of Corning Planning Grant for the Consolidation of Gibson Water District, Gibson Water District Extension 1, Corning Manor Water District, East Corning Water District, East Corning Water District Extension 1 (and potentially East Corning Water District Extension 2, if approved) has been submitted to the the New York State Department of State.
The Citizens Empowerment grant is a frequent and non-competitive grant that on the planning side is 50/50 match upon award. The maximum of the project cannot exceed $50,000. The Grant is 50/50 match.

The Town's plan upon award of this grant is to prepare State Environmental quality review of the proposed Consolidation of operation and maintenance of all of these Districts so as to reduce the water use costs to the users in all of these districts. 

Currently, our Water Operator has water testing,monthly, quarterly and annually along with associated reporting requirements that would reduce extensive redundancies as he currently is required to do so for each individual district.
The current Debts of all these water Districts will stay the same as they are currently are until they are paid off.

By receiving this grant a Map Plan and report will be generated and upon approval of this plan by the New York State Department of State the Town will then apply for an implementation grant in early 2017. This implementation grant is a match of 40/ 10. 

If the Implementation grant is awarded then the tentative plan is to consolidate these districts effective January 1, 2018.

We will keep you updated as we expect to hear of our status on this grant application within the next 90 days! AS of 4/18/16 the Town has not heard anything regarding the our status of this grant we will keep you posted!
