Notice is Hereby Given that the County Legislature of the County of Chautauqua, New York will meet in the Legislative Chambers, Gerace Office Building, 3 North Erie Street, Mayville, New York on May 25, 2022 at 6:35 PM, prevailing time, for the purpose of conducting a public hearing concerning the proposed extension of the North Chautauqua Lake Sewer District (NCLSD) boundary in the Town of Chautauqua to include properties in the Mandolin Ridge Development (Development) and two nearby properties, at the requests of the property owners.  This boundary extension will not involve construction of additional NCLSD infrastructure and no debt will be issued to finance the improvements.  The extension will enable property owners who have the necessary infrastructure to receive NCLSD services, and will involve NCLSD acceptance, without charge, of ownership of existing Development infrastructure consisting of 25 manholes and approximately 6800 linear feet of eight-inch sewer main.  At such public hearing, the Chautauqua County Legislature will hear all persons interested in this matter.

The area to be included within the proposed extension of NCLSD is set forth as follows:

Commencing at a Point f Beginning, said point being the intersection of the Existing North Chautauqua Lake Sewer District boundary and the northern boundary of Parcel 297.01-1-58; thence proceeding southwesterly along the northern boundaries of Parcel 297.01-1-58, 297.01-1-38, 297.01-1-37, 297.01-1-36, 297.01-1-35, 297.01-1-34, 297.01-1-33, 297.01-1-32, 297.01-1-31, 297.01-1-30, 297.01-1-29, 297.01-1-28, 297.01-1-27 to the northwest corner of Parcel 297.01-1-27; thence continuing southerly along the western boundaries of Parcel 297.01-1-26, 297.01-1-25, 297.01-1-24, 297.01-1-23, 297.01-1-22, 297.01-1-21, 297.01-1-20, 297.01-1-19, 297.01-1-18, 297.01-1-17, 297.01-1-16, to the southwest corner of Parcel 297.01-1-16; thence continuing easterly along the southern boundaries of Parcel 297.01-1-16, 297.01-1-15,  297.01-1-14, 297.01-1-13, 297.01-1-12, 297.01-1-11, 297.00-1-48 to its intersection with the eastern boundary of Chautauqua Stedman Road; thence continuing northerly along the eastern boundary of Chautauqua Stedman Road to the southwest corner of Parcel 297.00-1-19; thence continuing easterly along the southern boundary of Parcel 297.00-1-19 to the southeast corner of said Parcel; thence continuing northeasterly along the eastern boundary of Parcel 297.00-1-19 to the northeast corner of said Parcel; thence continuing northwesterly along the northern boundary of Parcel 297.00-1-19 to the northwest corner of said Parcel; thence continuing northerly along the eastern boundary of Chautauqua Stedman Road to its intersection with the Existing North Chautauqua Lake Sewer District boundary; thence continuing northwesterly along the Existing North Chautauqua Lake Sewer District boundary to the Point of Beginning.

 A map showing tax parcels within the extension area is included as Figure 1, and a list of EDU assessments is included as Appendix B, to the “North Chautauqua Lake Sewer District Extension No. 1” Map, Plan and Report (MPR) prepared by Barton & Loguidice and on file for inspection in the office of the Clerk of the County Legislature, 3 North Erie Street, Mayville, New York, and available on-line at https://chqgov.com/legislature/Legislature.  As shown in MPR Appendix B, residential and commercial properties will be assessed on an equivalent dwelling unit (EDU) basis.  The annual EDU charge will be $540, with a single family home constituting one EDU and a two family home constituting two EDUs.  Properties assessed at greater than 1 EDU will pay some multiple of $540 annually, and parcels that are not connected and not required to be connected will not be charged.  EDU charges may be changed from time to time by the County Legislature after a public hearing whenever the County Legislature shall determine that such changes are necessary in the public interest.  Property owners will be responsible for all costs of connecting to the District’s infrastructure.  Each new user is responsible for the cost of installing a sewer line from their dwelling or building to the property line (for gravity connections) or to a grinder pumping station installed near the dwelling.  Costs will vary depending on the type of service and subsurface conditions. A cost of $2,500 for the exterior connection is a reasonable budget.  Current connection permit fees are $50 for residential properties and $100 for commercial properties.  Reconfiguration of existing plumbing within the dwelling or building may also be required.  Property owners may be eligible to apply for a grant or loan to assist with the connection cost through the United States Department of Agriculture Rural Development.
