Plan. Of the dozen community fected under toe latest request for appropriations by the Westchester County Sanitary Commission, Ton- kera wlll.recclve the' greatest bene ­ fit, according to a statement Issued today by Francis A. Stratton. ML Vernon, who has been chairman of the commission since it was cre ­ ated by the Board of Supervisors more than three years ago. Stratton said: “ The Westchester County Sani ­ tary Commission thinks that the plan submitted by it for the Saw Mill River and North Yonkers projects la the most practical and most economical for the districts to be served, and that, Yonkers under this proposition receives the great ­ est benefit In cleaning up a had ' uatlon at the river front and In relief of taxation, which Is now < rled by Yonkers. 'Tho county commission, under this plan, proposes to assume and pay certificates of lndebtedm (323,000 now outstanding against tho City of Yonkers, and unless paid by the county must sarily be paid ultimately b„ assessment against the Nepperhan Valley. The county commission also, und.er Its plan, will eliminate tho necessity of pumping at Lake street, which Is now costing the City of Yonkers approximately (25,000 a year. “A* chairman of the comml have no desire to force upon inkers sewers which UA City of Yonkers does not want to pay for; je same time I believe Yonkers Is not making a mistake In not ac ­ cepting the cooperation of the county commission. To relieve the situation' the com ­ mission Is preparing an alternative plan to sewer the Saw Mill River valley above Tonkera and the Western slope of Dobbs Ferry and Hastings, and allow Yonkers to take care of Its own sewer problem. Independent of county assistance. This tentative plan will be sub ­ mitted to the Budget Committee tho Board of Supervisors at meeting July 10. when the question will be discussed.'* of Yorktown at Average of $450 COPS TO CONFER I WITH COOPER ON NEW SCHEDULE Minority Report Urged $180.- 000 Per Acre for Watershed Property.
