Last year, residents of the town sewer district, including Hanford and Sunset Bay and Routes 5 & 20 commercial area, opposed spending the money and the issue was set aside.

However, since then, the plant has been plagued by mechanical failures and equipment not working up to capacity, Improvements to the drying beds and chemical treatment system also are proposed.

During last week’s meeting. residents suggested expanding the sewer district to create more revenue.
