CANISTEO, NY – The town of Canisteo approved a bid to replace the roof on the Town Hall. Local contractor Bill Weakland was the low bidder at $11,338. The deal includes a complete tear off and shingle replacement. Bids received for a metal roof were substantially higher so the board passed on that option.
Also the board voted to have a franchise agreement with Spectrum (old TWC) on a possible 15 year agreement. The last agreement was for a 10 year period. A public hearing is necessary on the matter so one was scheduled for July 10th at 7pm.
After much debate, a resolution was finally passed to sell the old roller for $18,900. Part of that money will be used to purchase a new Brine tank (around $7,500) and the rest will go into a fund toward the future purchase of a new truck.
And lastly Marguerite Wells from Invenergy was present to update the board on the Canisteo Wind Project, and also to announce upcoming open houses that should answer any questions residents may have. Those will be held on July 18th from 5:30 to 7:30pm at the Troupsburg Fire Hall, and July 19th from 10am to 12pm at the Canisteo Legion.
