HOLLEY – The villages of Holley and Albion approved a full service contract for Albion to operate the Wastewater Treatment Facilities in Holley.

The scope of the agreement signed last week provides a win-win situation for both communities. The Village of Albion receives needed revenue for operations, while Holley will save approximately $30,000 in operating expenses.

The Village of Albion will provide personnel qualified in technical, laboratory, and administrative management duties on a 24/7 basis. This will satisfy New York and federal regulatory requirements regarding wastewater treatment operations and maintenance.

This initiative was the result of conversations and meetings orchestrated by Holley Trustees Brian Sorochty, Donald Penna and David Dill with Chief Operator Rick Albright of Albion’s Pollution Control Facility.

In May 2014, both Village Boards met to discuss the parameters of an agreement between the two villages. This joint venture may eventually lead to additional cost-saving services between the two villages. These financial initiatives are in line with Gov. Cuomo’s savings through cooperative activities and shared services.
