Troy Water Bill Paid

From the Troy Record: Tutunjian takes credit for water deal.

TROY - Mayor Harry Tutunjian announced his receipt of the final water bill payment from the city of Rensselaer Wednesday, marking the end to a nearly 10-year battle between the cities and Troy's collection of $1.7 million.

A final payment of just more than $1.3 million was presented to the city Tuesday, which finalized the settlement of Rensselaer's water debt for a period between 1998 and 2006 three days before the Oct. 25 settlement deadline and only three months after the settlement was agreed upon by Tutunjian and Rensselaer Mayor Dan Dwyer.
