Shelburn council approves contracts on wastewater service, road repairs
The Shelburn town council approved contracts that will repair roads in town and hand over maintenance of the wastewater facilities to the current operator.
The council renewed its contract with Floyd-Hunter Environmental through 2017. Along with the renewal, Floyd-Hunter will now oversee other aspects of the wastewater system, including facility maintenance.
“They’ve had the operation for awhile,” said the town’s clerk-treasurer Jay Southwood.
Staci Hunter, an owner/operator of Floyd-Hunter, said the switch will put the responsibility of changing oil in compressors and electrical troubleshooting, among other forms of maintenance, in the company’s hands, which would save the town money.
“I think everybody’s getting a good deal,” Hunter said.
The board also approved a contract with Bloomfield-based Asphalt Doctor to patch roads throughout the town.
The repairs will cost around $5,255. Southwood said the town was contacted by the repair company with the offer.
