To the Valley News:
Correction: A recent letter to the editor, from Ken Fenimore, presented incorrect information regarding the Town Board vote to award a contract for the design and engineering of the Water Meter Project.
The bid from Dodson & Associates of Schenectady, NY for engineering and design was $50,000 plus $10,000 for the necessary construction oversight during installation for a total of $60,000.
The bid from AES Northeast of Plattsburgh, NY for engineering and design was $44,848 plus $11,128 for necessary construction oversight, printing, mileage and postage, for a total cost of $56,128.
The Town Board voted to hire the less expensive firm. Copies of both bid sheets are available at the Town Hall and on the Town Website.
