GE Agrees to Settle with Stillwater
GE’s press statement was that: “Over the past two weeks GE, The Town of Waterford and the Village of Stillwater have reached an agreement in principle to resolve their disputes to the satisfaction of all parties. The necessary agreements are being finalized.”
As your mayor, I am proud to announce that the lawsuit brought against General Electric by the Village of Stillwater has been settled. The Village will receive compensation for damages received by General Electric to the Village’s water system.
This has been a long battle for the Village and myself since 1998. I want to thank the Village’s law firm Dreyer Boyajian LLP, and Mr. James Peluso, the Village’s Attorney. I also want to thank the Village Board of Trustees for sticking with me during all these years.
Last, but most of all, the Village taxpayers, for having the trust in me, to bring this case to an end. Thank and God Bless the Village of Stillwater.
Ernest W. Martin
Mayor / Village of Stillwater
