Resolution 2019-3 NYS now and Ice Contract Amendment
Proposed Action: Amendment to Contract #D01680 of the Municipal Snow and Ice Contract Agreement

Whereas, due to the severity of the winter and the high cost of fuel during the 2018/2019 season, the municipality request that the Municipal Snow and ice Agreement estimated expenditure be revised to reflect the additional lane miles of state roads that were plowed and or treated during the aforementioned season, and the additional costs associated with the higher fuel prices, and

Whereas, all terms and conditions of the original contract extension remain in effect except the original estimated expenditure of $64,059.12 will have an additional adjustment of $45,481.98 for a revised estimated expenditure of $109,541.10, and

Now, therefore be it resolved, this board authorizes Thomas Garretson-Supervisor to enter into amendment B which will adjust the snow and ice contract for a revised payment factor with the New York State Department of Transportation.
