  1. Ratification of repairs to East Eden Fire Pumper

 

Councilman Vacco stated that he had contacted the Renaldo Sales and Service

Center in Brant for an estimate to repair the leak in the water tank of the East Eden 1983 American LaFrance Century Pumper.  Renaldo was able to find the leak and stated they would be able to make the repair at a cost of $2,000.00 and have the truck back in service within 24 hours plus guarantee their work.  This is $1,000.00 lower than the lowest estimate from RD Murray.  Given the urgency to have this vehicle repaired so that it would not be out of service, Supervisor Nellis conducted a phone poll of the Town Board members and then Renaldo was notified that they could make the repairs.

 

MOTION was made by Councilman Vacco to ratify the phone poll allowing Renaldo Sales and Service to make the necessary repairs to the East Eden Fire Department’s 1983 Pumper at a cost of $2,000.00; seconded by Councilwoman Pew;  All “Ayes”; Opposed? – None; Abstain? – None; Motion carried.
