Salem selectmen want to hear from abutters on sewer extension
The board had previously asked the applicant to attempt to extend public sewer lines down Hampshire Road as part of the project.
However, at a meeting of the selectmen last week, the board tabled the decision on the extension until the board heard from three abutters who will be affected by the sewer extension.
Selectmen are scheduled to notify the abutters of a public hearing it will hold on the issue at its Monday, Oct. 21, meeting.
“I think we should move on the plan,” he said. “The sewer connection is not in our hands. That is up to the applicant and the town.”
“Extending the sewer line will benefit the town of Salem, and I think we ought to encourage that,” Moldoff said.Planning Board member Phyllis O’Grady said she believes sewer extension will benefit the town but added that she also understands the concerns of abutters who may not want to pay betterment fees and tie into the sewer lines.
