Last Thursday evening, the Warwick Sewer Authority Board of Directors and the WSA Director, Janine Burke, wanted to award the construction contract for Governor Francis phase 3 sewers. They had a big problem though... they haven't received the zoning change yet for the pumping station.
This is a repeat of what happened regarding the pumping station project for Governor Francis Phase 2. For those of you who don't know your history, this required legal action by the WSA to acquire the land because they didn't have clear title to the pumping station land prior to starting sewer project construction. This once again resulted in thousands of dollars in... WASTE.
Don't you think WSA Director Janine Burke and her Board would have learned their lesson the first time? Oh no, their motto is : as long as we're in the black, let the ratepayers be damned.
