i. Emery Mills Bridge Reconstruction
The board decided to review three (03) bids received by the town for the Emery Mills Bridge project on December 28, 2021. The bidders are being notified of the date in the event they would like to attend.
One contractor had additional questions about the project which was sent via email to Town Administrator. A question was presented concerning hauling aggregate material on posted roads. William J. Mageary noted that the project would likely be starting outside the timeframe of this concern next Spring. Further questions were deferred until the next meeting.
ii. Casella Waste Systems Contract
William J. Mageary requested the status of a request by Casella Waste Systems to consider whether the town of Shapleigh would want to negotiate a contract alone or as part of a multi-town contract. The current contract expires in 2025. Town Administrator advised the Board that Casella had sent a copy of the Acton contract for review, as this contract is the same for 14 towns currently on it. Due to the non-emergent timeframe this topic was tabled for further discussion.
