EASTHAMPTON – The City Council wanted to wait for final documents before considering aneasement agreement between the city and Pleasant Street mill property owners.

The council has set a Sept. 4 public hearing on the agreement that will require a two-thirds vote of the council to be approved.

City attorney John H. Fitz-Gibbon said there was some minor tweaking, and he wants the council to have the final documents before voting.

The council also decided on Wednesday to conduct the hearing to give residents an opportunity to comment. The City Council Property Subcommittee had on Tuesday supported moving the matter to the full council for a vote.

City planner Jessica Allan said the agreement is moving right on time. The city needs to have the document signed so bids can be sought for the project.     …….Click here to read more.
