Regular Business

  1. Autocraft Update – Cleanup work at the site is proceeding. There have been different issues with a couple of vehicles. The excavator and backhoe will not be removed. The storage trailer will be removed. It is expected that the removal of junk metal etc will be completed by the end of the week. The next issue will be to see if there are any environmental concerns.

  7. Jim mentioned he was concerned about the fact Bradford is behind in making payments to the school. Karen explained we were waiting for the State’s bridge reimbursement payment and the Tax Anticipation Note to be authorized. Once the funds are received and available, payments to the school will be made. He also has concerns with how the budget was put together for 2017. The Board decided to revisit this issue later in the year before the 2018 Budget is developed.
