Lewiston Town Board will be discussing more than a few items of interest to
residents at sessions this coming week.
Supervisor Steve Reiter reports that Dennis Eisenbeck of National Grid will
visit Monday's regular Town Board session to address the power discount package
the energy provider has with the town and how market forces are resulting in
further adjustments. Reiter explained at the Sept. 13 work session that
National Grid, which at one time availed electrical power discounts of as much
as 59 percent to town residents, then reducing that amount offering to 14
percent, is now faced with further reductions in the discount. He revealed that
town residents could now be faced a discount dropping to 8.5 percent along with
some "reconciliation" matters to help National Grid address shortfalls. The
Eisenbeck presentation will open the board's session at 6 p.m.
preliminary meeting on the 2011 town budget will be held on Tuesday, Sept. 28,
at in the Town Hall conference room No. 1. The session gets under way at 6 p.m.
Thursday, Sept. 30, at 9 a.m. the Town Board will meet with a number of
interests involved with the various festivals held in the village to discuss
the financial impacts associated with the events the Town of Lewiston contends
with. Lewiston Police services and the costs involved are expected to be a
matter of discussion among others.
