Country Club water bill woes continue into new year

Extending the deadline for an overdue payment for water from the Skaneateles Country Club was discussed at the Dec. 28 town board meeting. The Club had installed a new water pit, which had damaged its water meter.

In 2010 that broken water meter was repaired - after this it was determined that the club was in arrears $14,000 on payments to the town for water. Half of the bill was paid in August with the remaining $7,000 due on Jan. 10, 2011.

Club General Manager Jim Fields called the town for an extension on the Jan. 10 payment because of a cash flow problem with Country Club dues not paid until February. The town already paid the village the entire $14,000, so it was decided to extend the due date to March 1, 2011, but also to charge a 10 percent interest compounded quarterly.
