The Windham Town Council discussed the expansion of a water main down Route 302 from the rotary at Routes 302 and 202 at Tuesday night’s meeting. The pipeline would run about 1,500 linear feet and cost an estimated $115,000.
The property owner and developer agreed to pay for half the cost, however North East Civil Services who owns the property and will lease to Dollar General, estimates that the actual cost of the expansion will be approximately $200,000.
The discussion was centered around the large cost for such a short distance. The council is looking to identify other sources to make up the $85,000 difference other than the town.
Town manager Tony Plante expects that it will appear as a discussion item on the next town council agenda.
