The Marilla Town Board is considering whether to join with other towns in sharing the cost of legal and professional services to advise them on issues surrounding Quasar Energy Group’s plans to store or spread the sewage sludge, or bio-solids, from a processing plant.

Marilla Town Supervisor Earl Gingerich Jr. said Cambria, Lewiston, Wheatfield, Porter and Pendleton and possibly Alden and West Seneca are interested in joining forces to share the cost of hiring an attorney or expert.

“We have to do something and our best chance is if all of us work together to hire someone,” the supervisor said Tuesday. He added that he would try to get Elma involved, too. The idea is to protect water and animal life from heavy metals, he said.
