Kisco, Town of Bedford, County of Westchester. The Deputy and Acting Comptroller presented the following report and offered the following resolution :

July 21, 1916. To the Honorable the Commissioners of the Jinking Fund:

Gentlemen-I am in receipt of a communication to the Commissioners of the Sinking Fund from the Department of Water Supply, Gas and Electricity, in which they state that they have been negotiating with the Town of Bedford and the Village of Mt. Kisco, in relation to the construction of a sewer in Sutton's Row, in the Town of Bedford for the disposal of sewage from the houses on the lands abutting Sutton's Row.

The Commissioner states that this sewer is to connect with the sewer system of the Village of Mt. Kisco, and the sewage is to be disposed of at the disposal works operated by the Department of Water Supply, Gas and Electricity in the Village of Mt. Kisco. The said Department is endeavoring to bring about the construction and maintenance of the Sutton's Row sewer, at the expense of the Town of New Bedford. The Commissioner further states that to reach the nearest connecting point in the Mt. Kisco sewer system it will be necessary to pass through private property for a distance of approximately 180 feet, and that the department considers that that portion of the sewer connecting with the Sutton's Row sewer and the sewer system of the Village of Mt. Kisco should be installed and maintained at the expense of the City.

The property through which this portion of the sewer would be constructed is owned by William H. Nelson, of Mt. Kisco, New York. Intersecting other properties owned by Mr. Nelson southwesterly, the City owns a strip of land approximately 50 by 603 feet, extending from the highway westerly to the right-of-way of the New York Central & Hudson River Railroad. Located within this strip is a secins of the sewer system, the construction of which was authorized by chapter 428 ci tine Laws of 1907. This strip of land the Commissioner of the Department of Water Supply, Gas and Electricity states is not required or necessary for the purposes of his Department, and Mr. Nelson has agreed to grant to the City a ten foot permanent easement through his property, in which as above stated, the connecting section of the sewer will be laid, providing the City will release to him the property owned by I above mentioned, the City retaining to itself a permanent easement of ten jest through the center thereof.

The property owned by the City contains an area of 0.722 acres, and has been appraised by the Division of Real Estate of this Department at $300. The ten-icot easement which the City retains is valued at $150. The strip across Mr. Nelsno's land is approximately 10 by 180 feet, and has been appraised at $164. In my opinie this proposition of Mr. Nelson's is very advantageous to the City. In order to take advantage of the same it will be necessary, however, to have the Commissioners of
