Plainfield Stays With Frontier

The regular meeting of the Plainfield Town Board was held July 8 in the Town Hall.


Assessor John Davidson reported that the Final Assessment Role is done and available to the public during regular Town Clerk hours. He is doing splits and transfers.


Highway Superintendent Rod Jennison reported that Meadow Lane is being worked on. The new truck is on schedule.


One bid was received for painting the Courthouse. The roads are being checked for upkeep.


The June Supervisor reports, Town Clerk reports, Minutes and Abstracts were all presented and approved by the Board.


Supervisor Todd Lewis 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. After lengthy discussion, 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. The Town is a government account.


The new quote was exceedingly higher for the same coverage. Spectrum could do a lesser amount for one year, but then it would go back up.


Even though there have been problems with Frontier service, which have since been resolved, the Town would substantially save money staying with them. The Board voted and approved to maintain Frontier as internet and phone service provider.
