ROME — The Rome Common Council Wednesday scheduled two public hearings ahead of its Nov. 8 meeting regarding two water projects.
One of the projects is for the establishment of a water district for Phase 1 of the Oswego Road water main improvements. The other is to create a water district for Phase 2 of the northwest Rome water system improvement.
The hearing for the Oswego Road project is at 6:45 p.m. Wednesday, Nov. 8, and the other hearing is at 6:50 p.m. the same day.
The Oswego Road water district would serve residents along Oswego, Tannery, Seifert, Wuethrich and Hogsback roads, as well as along New York routes 46 and 49. This will be Phase 1, Project Seven of the Oswego Road water main improvements.
The goal of this district is to provide those residents with safe water to drink through the city’s water system. The district will exist until Dec. 31, 2034, in accordance with the map that is on file with the Rome City Clerk.
The other project will create a water district for those residents along West Thomas, Link, Rome-Taberg, Humaston, Gulf and Townline roads. The project also will provide residents along that route with water that is safe to drink.
This will be Phase Two, Projects Eight, Nine and 10 for the northwest Rome water system improvement project. The district will exist until Dec. 31, 2034.
The council will vote on the two ordinances after the public hearings.
