No drain on finances
Elmira residents got some clarity about the cost of maintaining drain #1 at a public meeting this week, prompting many of those scheduled to speak to simply say they were fine with the plan. The drain built in 1909 covers some 3,900 acres, including about 80% of Elmira, and was last updated in 1984. Most homeowners face a charge of less than $10.
