COVENTRY – A deal that would add tens of thousands of dollars to the Town of Coventry’s coffers is one step closer to being finalized.
While nothing has been signed, the town has had more of its questions answered and Town Supervisor Janice O’Shea said she doesn’t see the town not going forward with granting an easement to allow a natural gas pipeline to traverse town-owned property. Baring anything unforeseen of course.
Coventry would receive a one-time payment of $76,000 in compensation for the right of way, roughly $20 per linear foot, if they accept the offer on the table.
“We are very, very interested in pursuing it,” said O’Shea.
