ETNA GREEN — At its Nov. 10 meeting, the Etna Green Town Council handled multiple subjects despite no citizens attending. The council received bids for fencing at the waste water treatment plant and the old truck barn in Heritage Park will be getting two new doors.
The truck barn is being refurbished with roll-up sliding doors and full heat-insulation. The new doors will replace old bent doors, and Steel Ridge Building Supply in Tippecanoe bid $2,675 to handle the work. The council accepted the bid. Council members also accepted a bid for $7,675 to insulate the ceiling with cellulose and the walls with fiberglass.
The council received four bids,between $3,650 and $5,800, for 221 feet of fencing around the waste water treatment plant. Because the work is the same across all four bids, the council decided to approve the lowest bid from Accent Fence Company, based in Syracuse. The bid for $3,650 was passed, and work on the fence will start in December.
A net metering ordinance was also passed, which clerk-treasurer Laura Baker said was so “the town would be ready in case people start using wind and solar power for energy. It gives us regulations in case that starts happening.”
The next town council meeting will be held at 7 p.m. Dec. 8, and the council will discuss the salary ordinance for 2016.
