TOAV runs the sewer system, and has more than doubled the rates in the last ten years. Now, it is building a wastewater treatment facility adjacent to Brewster Park, in conjunction with VVWRA.
What TOAV should do is sell the sewer system to Ranchos or Ranchos’ parent corporation (along with any existing water rights it still has), because in addition to private enterprise being more efficient, there is a high likelihood that there will be serious issues with the Town running a sewer utility, especially one that includes a wastewater processing plant.
