Delaware Engineering supports towns in New York State in the formation of special improvement districts under Article 12 and 12A of the Town Law and, additionally, assists with Town Law Article 12, Section 202(b) proceedings for the increase or improvement of existing special improvement districts.
We have specific experience in the preparation of Map, Plan & Report documentation for the creation of water, sewer and drainage districts. Additionally, we support town boards with public engagement to describe and respond to input regarding the creation of special improvement districts.
In preparing Map, Plan & Report documentation for water, sewer and drainage districts, our approach is to carefully consider district boundaries as well as the infrastructure that will support the provision of public services. Rate structure and end user costs are evaluated initially and throughout the iterative process of creating a district.
We coordinate with local and bond counsel in the creation of districts, and are well versed in the review conducted by the Office of the State Comptroller when required.
Delaware Engineering conducts similar services — including preparation of a map and plan, and support at public hearings — for increase or improvement proceedings under Town Law Article 12 Section 202(b).
