Danville Selectboard Meeting

DANVILLE - The Danville Selectboard met April 17th for their regularly scheduled meeting. One of the highlights was to discuss the bids for the 2020 mowing & gardening services of the properties owned by the Town of Danville.

The Selectboard heard a range of bids from $8,550 up to $31,00 dollars to mow the town-owned parks, hall and the 11 cemeteries.


 

The Board decided to go with two local businesses. Cutting it Close of Danville Vermont will be doing the gardening and Rich Benoit will be doing the mowing of the Parks and Cemetary.

For gardening Cutting it Close will cost the town $1,200 dollars, and RIch Benoit was awarded the mowing contract for $9,400 dollars. Eric Boch of the Selectboard said, "Cutting it Close has done gardening for me, and it was really good."

Though both Benoit and Cutting it Close were not the cheapest option, The board agreed that supporting the local businesses was the best option.
