Strong winds, rain and possible surf damage are forecast.” 2012-10-31 Signed, photographed last Friday by Utilities Superintendent Dick McElhaney.  Judy Metcalf writes: “David Crofoot’s signing of the Northport Village Corporation’s ‘Amended Consent Agreement’ marks a milestone for the village, putting to rest any lingering worries about the possibility that the village would be required to construct an unnecessary, large, and enormously expensive secondary treatment facility.  By this agreement, DEP (the Maine Department of Environmental Protection) has lifted all quarterly reporting requirements (of the 2003 Consent Agreement), waived any fines, and affirmatively recognized the effectiveness of our little treatment plant.  It was only fitting and right that David Crofoot be the utility trustee selected to sign this historic document.  He has been a steadfast, fervent, and focused advocate for logic, common sense, and a clean, effective sewer system.  His leadership and the skillful talents of our superintendent, Dick McElhaney, and our volunteer engineer, Dick Brockway, have served the village well in these long years.  The execution of this document is the culmination of hundreds of hours of committed work by many people.  The best reward, however, may not be the agreement itself, but the complimentary words from DEP which accompanied it: “The work that you folks have done to tighten up the collection system, increase the efficiency/effectiveness of the wastewater treatment facility, and extend the outfall pipe has made for a much improved system.”  We hope our fellow Bayside residents are as pleased as the Utility Trustees are.”2012-10-31 Signed, photographed last Friday by Utilities Superintendent Dick McElhaney.
