Owens Briefed on Rt. 12 Development

Alexandria Bay
Tuesday afternoon Congressman Bill Owens met with Town of Alexandria Supervisor Martha Millett, County Legislator Phil Reed and Fourth Coast engineer Rob Campany.  The purpose of the meeting was to discuss the Route 12 corridor waterline, its grant funding and the responsible development of those properties.  As it stands now, the Strip Mall and the Racino are two businesses that would bring year round employment and an increase number of tourists and shoppers to the area.  Congressman Owens was also briefed on the increasing  levels of contamination found in water wells that some believe is caused by the salt barn located at the Collins Landing D.O.T.
