STATE SAYS POTSDAM VILLAGE FINANCES ARE CLEAN--Potsdam Village Administrator David Fenton told Trustees Monday a three-month examination by the state Comptroller's Office resulted in no deficiencies, and few criticisms. ALSO FROM FENTON--The Administrator told Trustees the second set of turbine blades for the West Dam Hydro Project are in the quality control phase, so the blades will be proper upon shipment. A previous set of the custom-fabricated Italian blades had deficiencies in the casting, forcing a long delay in the project. Trustee and Deputy Mayor Ruth Garner said during a recent joint meeting with the Town Council and Dissolution Study Committee the hydro plant is expected to be done and running by the end of July.
