Hoosick Falls holds special meeting on companies' offer

February 27, 2018 09:30 AM

The Village of Hoosick Falls will decide tonight whether to accept funds from Saint-Gobain and Honeywell totaling $330,251.48. The payment would not be a settlement nor an admission by the companies but would cover certain costs related to village expense related to the PFOA situation.

The meeting is scheduled to be held at 7 p.m. at the Municipal Building, according to Mayor Rob Allen. However, if the crowd is big enough, the meeting will be delayed 15 minutes as it shifts to the Senior Center on Church Street, a larger venue.

The town turned down a settlement of $1.04 million exactly a year ago because it disagreed with the terms offered.
