Under Committee Reports, Councilman Pembroke reported that the sewage treatment plant is having a computer problem, which requires software updates that need to be performed prior to December 31st, due to updates.
Supervisor Plant reported that the board will need to discuss the replacement of the town hall flooring, whether the board would prefer carpet squares or vinyl. The second choice will be whether or not to float the new flooring over the existing flooring, or if a tear-out would be a more appropriate choice. The consensus of the board was to persue the carpet squares and would like to get price quotes for carpet with the floating installation, as well as with a complete tear-out. Superisor Plant will also follow up with the Engineer to the town for recommendation of the best installation method, as well. The board made a motion to consult with the engineer and to go out for bid for the flooring quotes, as well. The board also approved putting out to bid quotes for painting walls and the ceiling, separately. Additionally the board approved getting bids to re-key the town hall for the 2013 year. Additionally a group of three town employees- Susie Jacobs, Jackie VanLare, and Barb Kuelling were approved to make color choices for the paint and carpeting in an effort to expedite the process was also approved. Lastly a motion was made requiring a $25.00 fee for bid packages for the flooring.
