Proposed Bedford Hills – Katonah Business Sewer District

Proposed Bedford Hills-Katonah Business Sewer District

With Tuesday’s blizzard then looming and the announcement of Town offices and roads to be closed, the Town Board on Monday, March 13, rescheduled the Special Election.  The new date for the Special Election is Thursday, March 30, 2017.   There is a single polling place which is the Courtroom of the Town offices at 321 Bedford Road, Bedford Hills, which will be open from 6:00 AM to 9:00 PM. 

The proposal requires an affirmative vote of the property owners in the proposed sewer district.  We mailed on March 17 to each property owner a summary of the proposal, voting information and rules and an absentee ballot application.    Please see the documents listed below – you can click on any one of them to view it.

If you expect that you will need to vote by absentee ballot, please complete the absentee ballot application as soon as possible.  You can obtain it by clicking here.  You may complete, sign and scan it to the Town Clerk at, provided you mail the original to her.  Please be sure to complete all sections.

Should the proposal be approved, the Town Board will adopt a sewer law which will set sewer rents, establish other requirements, and require all property owners in the district to connect to the sewer system (and decommission their existing septic systems),.

If you have any questions regarding the proposal, please contact Supervisor Chris Burdick at or 914-666-6530.  If you have any questions regarding the voting process, please contact Town Clerk Boo Fumagalli at the e-mail above of 914-

We will continue to update this page from time to time.
