THE New Norfolk Council will consider the payment A of a subsidy by Australian Newsprint Mills Pty. Ltd. towards an extension to the sewerage scheme at New Norfolk.
SINCE the original scheme was put into operation, extensions have become necessary because of the big building programme at New Norfolk-North, where about 100 houses have been built for newsprint employees.
Applications also have been made for extensions of the sewerage area to embrace other residential sites outside the town boundary.
Details of the cost involved in the scheme and extensions have been submitted to the company and later a representative will confer with the council to discuss a basis of payment towards the scheme.
At the last council meeting a report was submitted showing that proposed extensions of the sewerage main to serve four houses in the Back River Rd. area would cost £830.
The matter was held over until next meeting.
Lachan Park Hospital now has been connected with the town sewerage main, and the century old drain leading from the hospital to the River Derwent through the main section of the town will be required no longer.
