OLD BUSINESS

The Supervisor provided a list of contractors for the sidewalk repair. Options were discussed and are being pursued.

Huntley Cemetery fuel provision was brought up. Several ideas were given as solutions. This will be reconsidered at a later date.

The ARPA funding was reconsidered, as the full Board was present. It was decided that the application be submitted for the funding. The application was filed and has been accepted by the State.

Spectrum’s previous quote was, erroneously, for a business account. We would be considered a government account. The new quote was exceedingly more than previously quoted, for the same service. They could do a lesser amount for one year, but then it would go back up after that. Even though there have been problems with Frontier service, which have since been resolved, the Town would substantially save money staying with them for internet and phone service. Keith Chapman made a motion, with a second by Connie Peeters, to maintain Frontier as the internet and phone provider.
