WEST DAM HYDRO PLANT PARTS TO ARRIVE WITHIN A WEEK, ADMINISTRATOR SAYS--Potsdam Village Trustees voted last week to release about 180-thousand dollars to a supplier sub-contracted to Canadian Turbine, so turbine parts can be delivered before winter and the building at the West Dam on the Racquette River can be closed up. Village Administrator David Fenton says the parts should be here from Ontario within a week. He says the deal to pay off Canadian Turbine's suppliers does not negate breach-of-contract litigation, but it certaily could lead to that. The Village has spent about 2 million dollars on the West Dam Hydro Project; the plant was supposed to be done over a year ago but Canadian Turbine was waiting to be paid off for other jobs before it could pay suppliers and release the parts. The Village agreed to pay the suppliers, directly.
