Road Foreman Jay Wilson reported that there were three sealed bids for six culverts that needed to be replaced on the South Wardsboro Road prior to the paving project scheduled.

Powling was asked to open the following bids.
Wright Maintenance                                         Newfane             $ 27,300.
 Jake Beattie                                                       Newfane             $ 15,000.
 Guilmette Land Works                                    Burlington           $ 70,300.             

Johnson-Aplin made a motion to accept Jake Beattie’s bid of $15,000 dollars, and Fitzpatrick seconded. Motion passed 3/0.

Wilson mentioned that he had found a tractor for roadside mowing; each year, to rent a tractor for three weeks is $9,500, and we don’t get all the places that need to be done. The road crew tested the tractor in Nashua, NH, and found it to be in good running condition; the only thing would be new tires and Plexiglas on the side.  The asking price is $36,000, with a delivery cost of $700.

Fitzpatrick made a motion to purchase the tractor and have it delivered, and Johnson-Aplin seconded. Motion passed 3/0.

Fitzpatrick made a motion to adjourn. The meeting was adjourned at 4:42 P.M.

Respectfully Submitted,
Wannetta Powling, Administrative Assistant
