Motion made by Ace and seconded by Van Kampen to award the 2017 Crack filling work to Crack Filling Services from Cross Plains in the amount of $11,900.  Motion carried.  The roads that will receive crack filling maintenance will be: 

 

·       North Storytown Rd from Sun Valley Parkway to Purcell Rd          $ 4,200.

·       Sun Valley Parkway from County Highway D to Judd Rd               $ 3,700.

·       Tipperary Rd from County Highway A to Bellbrook Rd                   $ 3,200.

Chairman Ace requested that George Polnow of Fahrner Sealers LLC explain the product GSB-88.  Mr. Polnow shared that gilsonite is a natural ore pavement sealer and rejuvenator.  The product is sprayed on and cures in a just a few hours sealing the road as it penetrates into the asphalt minimizing cracking.  GSB-88 works well in a cul-de-sac because it does not have the negative side effect of loose aggregate product that residents complain about.  The road will need to be closed for two hours and Fahrner will be responsible for placing tags on all the homes affected.  This will provide sealing from water intrusion.  Motion made by Ace and seconded by Van Kampen to award the bid to apply GSB-88 to Fahrner Sealers, LLC. in the amount of $9,670.  Motion carried.

The entire Hampton Hills Sub-Division is in the projected pulverize and asphalt repaving bid for 2017.  Motion made by Ace and seconded by Van Kampen to award the 2017 Road Paving (Asphalt) bid Payne and Dolan in the amount of $208,770.35.  Motion carried.  Chair Ace had questions regarding the best way to handle this sub-division.  There are 50 cement driveways that are to be cut in the current plan. The residents do not want their driveways cut.  The grade will be raised 3 ½ to 4 inches.  The driveways would be cut by Payne and Dolan and the hauling of the cement product would be the Town’s responsibility.  Ace is willing to have a meeting with the residents in the neighborhood.  A resident of the sub-division Doug Sina is representing the group.  Ace would like to find a compromise.  The board agreed that Ace should meet with the members of the sub-division, listen to their requests and bring the information back to the Town Board.
