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.
