The Southside Water project will ensure a more sustainable and reliable water supply, reducing water wastage and promoting conservation. It is expected to greatly improve water quality, address water scarcity issues, and provide a reliable source of clean water for generations to come. The successful completion of this project marks a significant milestone in the town's commitment to delivering essential services to the community.

Otsego County Broadband Data Inquiry The New York State Public Service Commission and the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) have each published a map online displaying access to data on broadband services and providers at the household level. The county has reviewed these maps and found some inaccuracies, such as, providers listing speeds that were different (higher) than the actual speeds experienced at the household levels. If broadband connectivity and speeds are reported as a higher than they actually are, the effort to address uneven access across the state will be lessened.

We are asking individuals and municipalities to review the maps for accuracy and submit a “challenge” to the FCC by January 13, 2023. If any household needs assistance in reading the map or completing the “challenge” they can reach out to the Otsego County Panning and Solid Waste Dept at 607-547-4225 or planning@otsegocounty.com.
