Village Settles On Salt Contamination Law Suit

Alexandria Bay:

In 2004, Mr. Burns who owns property on Carnegie Bay Rd. filed a law suit against the village for salt contamination.  According to village attorney M. Gebo, there had been a number of suits filed from other residents from that same road in 2004.  Mr Burns was the only one that pursued it to the point of court action.  All the others failed to follow up within the one year limitation.  According to attorney Gebo, Mr Burns original law suit was for a lot of money..... but after 8 years Burns settled for $30,000.  The money will be taken from the General Fund.  Listen to the audio clip for a detailed discussion from the 2.14.12 VB meeting.
