Discussion of Meeting with Chagnon Construction-

Peter came up with the figure of 70,000.00 for a reduction cost on the project.

Directional Boring could be one way of saving money. Eliminate services for people who are not on the same side of the road as the pipe. Peter thought he would talk to Hummels and Massinghams about paying the 2,000.00 connection fee now and than we would put in their service.

Switch to a welded tank this could save around 30,000.00 and hold off on tanks and pumps to serve the people there.

Change building design to a 4 foot knee wall with a roof going into the bank in place of a precast building. This change may have to be run by zoning .

Postpone interior and exterior lighting.

Eliminating the Bonding insurance could save 5 to 6 thousand dollars.

Changing the flushing hydrant could also save.

Alan has 2 companies coming to check out the old tank for a quotation on painting it.

A one week extension was asked for to accept the bids, Alan to finalize this.

Peter researched what it would cost for us to borrow 60,000.00 at 6% would give us a payment of about 500.00 a month.

Peter contacted the Underhill Town Clerk and The New England Federal Credit Union still needs a corrected plat.

We will continue to research and see if the 22,000.00 from the Revolving Loan fund changed to a grant since the bids came in higher than expected.

Peter had a conversation with Guiliani and he said we could reject all the bids, and that you cannot just pick a bidder and work with him, could rebid the project at another time, could also do the project ourselves.

Hopefully we will have a new estimate from Chagnons by the end of the week.

Adjournment - 8:10 p.m.

Respectfully submitted:

Jane Maheux
