ASBESTOS IN AURORA LIBRARY IS SEEN POSING NO HAZARD

Aurora Supervisor Henry Hager reassured the Town Board Monday evening that the asbestos in the Aurora Town Library ceiling does not represent a hazard to occupants.

He said that proposals sought for an abatement program have been received from two firms and will be referred to the board for its consideration.

Ecology and Environment Inc. and Niagara Frontier Consulting Services Inc. are interested in the project, a third company declined to bid, Hager added.

Twice in recent years the library ceiling was tested, and the results showed an insignificant level of air contamination, Hager said.

In other business, the board rescinded its action to terminate a snowplowing agreement with the county after the county agreed to contract for the service for $1,300 a lane mile.

Hager said most of the county's towns, which were asking $1,500 a lane mile, will continue their current contracts while seeking an acceptable arrangement for next year.

The town will contact residents of Mill Road, between Davis and Luther roads, with estimates on the cost of extending water service to their area. Hager said the estimated costs without the hookup fees would be $10.80 per $1,000 of assessed valuation for a 20-year bond or $7.80 for a 40-year bond.

He added that as the bonds are paid the yearly cost decreases to about 2/3 the original figure.
