Visitors

Zach Shippy was present to give an update on his Eagle Scout project.  He had met with President Knoup and mapped out the location for the Welcome Stone which will be located on the South side of Pearl City Rd. Zach noted that the cement slab for the stone will be donated. And that the stone will be set to with rods to avoid it falling.  The board members encouraged him to inscribe his name and date on the cement pad.

 Bid letting was done for the street maintenance, which includes Walgren Rd. and two alleys.  Fehr-Graham estimated the work at $55,959.00.   We had two bids: Martin-$52,543 and Civil-$69,532.  Motion was made by Jim to accept the low bid from Martin at $52,543.00.  Motion second by Larry.  Motion carried.  Since we have approval for $60,000.00 from Motor Fuel, Jim will be allowed to add on any other work that he feels is necessary to bring our total to $60, 00.00. Board members noted that there is patchwork to be done around town and that Jim should look at the alley from First St. to Summit St.
