A long awaited feasibility study concerning properties owned by the city was apparently delivered to city hall earlier this week and will shortly be made available to the Board of Aldermen, according to Aldermanic President Robert Van Campen.

“All of us will have a chance to review and to study the feasibility report and to report back after doing so in two weeks,” he told his colleagues.

And it was agreed that at the next meeting of the Aldermen the feasibility study will be first on the list of new business.

Included in that study is a look at the controversial former senior high school property, long vacant and expensive to maintain.

Also discussed by the Aldermen Monday night were the new figures that have been compiled relative to the modernizing and upgrading of the city’s commercial water meters.

It is believed, the Aldermen said, that the city has been losing substantial income because some large water meters are inefficient or inoperative.

Once again, the Aldermen decided to study the statistics and to return in two weeks to discuss them at length and perhaps to act.
