Approve Revised Quote for Digital Sign-Frost Electric

Ms. Topper said there are two quotes from Frost Electric with the more recent one reflecting an increase. Mr. Walter explained the higher cost. He sent the proposal to Public Works Director Eric Dhuse to review it for any concerns. Mr. Dhuse said that cold patch could not be used to repair the driveway as proposed by Frost Electric. The alternatives were to return in spring to repair with hot patch or to use a 2-foot x 2-foot x 8-inch concrete patch. Mr. Walter said in hindsight, he might have recommended moving the sign to the other side of the driveway, however, Mr. Hedman said the current location provides more visibility.

Using a diagram provided by Frost Electric, the Board further discussed the process to do the necessary electric work for the sign. It was noted that the electric line also runs the Beecher Center sign. There is no option to pull electric power from the city hall. Ms. Topper noted that the Friends group was upset the sign was not ready, since they wish to advertise the mini-golf event. She said the electrician is aware the work needs to be scheduled quickly.

Mr. Crawford moved to approve the new quote for $6,950.00 and Ms. Garcia seconded. Roll call: Crawford-yes, Forristall-yes, Garcia-yes, Hedman-yes, Walter-yes, Brendich-yes. Carried 6-0.

Executive Session: None


There was no further business and the meeting adjourned at 6:07pm on a motion by Mr. Crawford and second by Mr. Walter.
