Road Commissioner’s Orders


The road commissioner’s orders were reviewed and signed.


Hearing of Visitors


Rafus discussed the uniforms budget. He had spoken with G&K Services and reported that they still have one more year left on their contract. G&K noted that if the town buys the clothing from them, they will let them out of the contract with no penalty. It would cost us $4k to get out of the contract now. A catalog should be arriving today. Rafus and G&K also discussed continuing the rag service which would be allowed but they would have to drop off/ pick up at the Marlboro garage.


The group also briefly discussed truck #5. The work will cost more than anticipated ($52-53k in house and $58-59k sent out). They will discuss further at the next budget meeting.




The meeting was adjourned at 8:40am.


Respectfully submitted,


Jessica Bruno

Selectboard Secretary
