Public Works Director
PNC Furnace replacement – Mr. Bragaw had provided an Interoffice Memorandum to inform the members of the furnace problems at the PNC. The unit was replaced early in October with a cost of $5000. He added that there is a second furnace at the site from the original construction, there is not a specific problem at this time. He stated that he would be putting in a CIP request to replace this unit.
Mr. Bragaw requested approval from the Board to approve the purchase of a pickup truck for the Highway Supervisor’s use. He added that the low bid exceeded the appropriation in the CIP account. The bids were higher than what was budgeted due to an upgrade in the specifications of the truck from a Ford Ranger XLT to a F150. Members discussed the necessity of a larger truck. Members also voiced their concern over not being notified prior to this. The item was tabled until the December meeting and Mr. Bragaw stated that he would look at future purchases.
Director of Finance
