A special meeting of the Ellicottville Town Board was held Wednesday, Aug. 29, 2012, at 4 p.m., as a continuation of the Aug. 24, 2012, meeting due to incomplete information from one of the contractors’ bids.
The town garage pole barn building was the topic and only item on the agenda. At the Aug. 17 meeting, it was decided to look into a materials bid only for the project, with the option of constructing the building by town employees to be hired as part-time, seasonal employees.
Two bids were opened for materials only, and the bid was awarded to House of Steel. The total project estimate, including labor, is $92,000, a cost savings of approximately $30,000.
A motion was made to approve the hiring of part-time, seasonal employees to build the pole barn, to be supervised by Mike Halloran.
A second motion was made to reject the materials bid from Sixt & Son, due to an informality and lack of responsiveness.
A third motion was made to accept the House of Steel bid for $45,292.58 in materials.
The next regular Ellicottville Town Board meeting is scheduled for Sept. 19 at 6 p.m.
