Income Survey Information needed back by August 1

Conway’s Wastewater Development Committee recently sent brief surveys to downtown village residents requesting information about earned income. This information, which will be held in strict confidence by a third party agency, is necessary to pursue state and federal grants to help in the design, engineering and construction of a wastewater system for downtown Conway. The data obtained by the survey will help to determine if there is money available and the extent to which Conway qualifies for financial support.

It’s very important that these surveys be completed and returned in the stamped, return envelope provided, by August 1st. A reply is requested even though the recipient may not interested in connecting to a new system. A response rate of 87% is necessary to enable the project to move forward.

The project is still in its conceptual stage and no tax money will be used unless legally appropriated at a Town Meeting.
