Cranberry Isles School Board
Minutes of 8 July 2008

I. Meeting called to order by chairperson Kate Chaplin at 4:40 P.M. at the Islesford School. Present: Board members Kate Chaplin and Ted Spurling.
The meeting was adjourned briefly and reconvened at Kate’s home.
II. Minutes of 11 June 2008 were approved. Motion: Kate; second: Ted; vote: yes, unanimously.
III. Action Item: Approval of Bid for Islesford School Ceiling Project. Two bids were reviewed: Young’s Building Contractor of Mount Desert, in the amount of $36,310; and Dunbar and Brawn Construction of Bangor, with the options of $35,653 (or) $28,950, depending on choice of material for beams.
Although The Dunbar and Brawn bids were less, they did not include costs for electrical and plumbing. Young’s bid did include electrical/plumbing, estimated at $3000. Further, the Dunbar and Brawn bids were contingent upon that company receiving a contract from the Town of Cranberry Isles for
construction of town garage/fire house. Because the special town meeting about that matter had adjourned minutes earlier with decision resulting in delay of construction of said garage for an indefinite period, and because of the additional Dunbar and Brawn cost for electrical/plumbing, the board voted to award the ceiling contract to Young’s Building Contractor, Inc. for the amount of $36,310. Motion: Ted; second: Kate; vote: yes, unanimously.
IV. Adjournment: Having no other business, the board adjourned at 5:10 P.M.
Motion: Ted; second: Kate; vote: yes, unanimously.

Respectfully submitted,
Theodore L. Spurling, Jr.
