Present was Board Clerk Mary Ashcroft, Board Member Joe Denardo, Administrative Assistant Bill Sweet, Town Clerk & Treasurer Kirsten Hathaway and Mr. Robert Clark from Otter Creek Engineering.

  • The committee met with Mr. Robert Clark from Otter Creek Engineering to discuss a proposed water line extension down Randbury Road.
    1. Soil testing was completed along the proposed site and no contamination was found
    2. Clark estimated costs could come in lower than initial projects with the competitive bidding process.

    4. Most business owners along Randbury Road were in favor of connecting to the new line.
    5. The State requires a permit to operate as well as a construction permit. This permit requires Rutland City to sign off for approval as well. Mr. Clark said it has been submitted to them and he does not expect any issues.
    6. Clark needs signed approval to start the bid process as well as permission for Bill to sign the state permit application on behalf of the town so it can be filed.
    7. Ashcroft and Mr. Denardo will reach out to the other board members to sign the approval and discuss approving Bill to sign the permit application.
