At their Jan. 25 meeting Board members decided to move from a 500-gallon tank to a 1,000-gallon one, but put the vote off until prices could be determined for the new one. Highway Superintendent Karl Buschor was absent from the meeting.
At the Board’s earlier January meeting Buschor said it would cost $3,583 from Buell Fuels for a new tank. He said the need for one is because sometimes Circle K is out of fuel and the town trucks need to be able to respond in storms.
Board members also gave approval to buy a new generator.
An eyewash station has been installed at the Highway Garage.
Buschor said he needs a GPS program to inventory town road signs.
Buschor and the Board discussed ways to rustproof the town trucks. It was decided to buy the equipment and have the Highway crew do the work rather than send the trucks to a business for the work.
Buschor said the pickup truck was damaged in the ice storm and is being repaired.
