Expansion will great about ten additional acres of landfill space in Bath

Steuben County legislators are expected Monday to approve the expenditure of $2 million from the county’s Landfill fund balance to enable continued service at the county Landfill on Turnpike Road in Bath.

The action will allow for construction of new calls at the landfill on approximately 10 acres and includes support facilities such as stormwater drainage, leachate conveyance and landfill gas collection.

The expansion is expected to add approximately 10 years of state permitted life to the landfill operation. In other action, the Legislature will vote on

  • Appropriating Opioid Funds for the purchase of a 15-Lead AED for the Sheriff’s Office. The department is one of the few in the state to train deputies as emergency medical technicians and paramedics.
  • Appropriating Opioid Funds for a $10,000 contract between the county Department of Community Services with PRETAA. The funds will pay for a pilot program to provide stopwatches for volunteers afflicted with substance abuse disorder.
  • Authorizing an application for a Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) Funding through the New York State Office of Community Renewal. The grant allows eligible local governments for housing, economic development, public facilities, public infrastructure and planning activities, with the principal purpose of benefitting low/moderate income persons.
  • A public hearing on the CDBG application is set to be held before the regular 10 am legislative session.
