Mark Baker granted water and sewer lines for vacant land he plans to develop across from Petro-Can

A map from the Department of Municipal Affairs shows the incorporated areas of Montague (63), Brudenell (64), Lower Montague (62) and Georgetown (65) and the unincorporated area of Valleyfield (59) and Cardigan (66).

MONTAGUE — After years of division, the first hook-up between Brudenell and Montague is going ahead.

Businessman Mark Baker has requested permission from the town council here to access the Montague sewer and water facility.

Baker is seeking the water and sewer connection for a two-acre plot of vacant land he plans on developing along the town border across the road from Baker’s One Stop Petro-Can gas station.

Mayor Richard Collins says the town welcomes the request and confirmed Baker will cover the estimated $30,000 cost.

It’s the first time such a deal has been brokered despite countless businesses in Brudenell anxious to connect to the town system.

While Brudenell council has expressed no interest connecting to the town system — since homes are on septic systems — the business section of the community (located on the same main road into Montague) experiences waste problem issues.
