365Re: Sacandaga Reservoir construction
- Jan 1, 2000I had no idea that Mr Hees had part in the Dam Project. That sounds
real fishy to me!
Gino, could you please forward that FJ&G was given $1,750,000 for losses due
to the Sacandaga Reservoir construction, including $70,000 for Sacandaga
Park. This according to a ledger book telling what each property holder was
given when the reservoir was flooded. I was given opportunity to see the
book a few years ago and copied this information from the book.
An interesting look through the railroad's history will tell you that J.
Ledlie Hees got into trouble because he was involved with both the electric
interests that built the reservoir, and also involved with the railroad that
the reservoir covered. He wrote a VERY lengthy letter to the board of
directors of the FJ&G telling how this conflict of interest didn't affect
his job at the railroad.
