Bids were opened for a 66" Roller as advertised. Two bids were received, plus one for an 84" roller.
Mr. Chaapel said, "We haven't had any problem with the roller." Mr. Miosi said, "It did a good job on the LeRoy Mountain Road." He added, "I don't want to purchase one and have it sit around for nine months, but when we need it, it is important to have it." Mr. May said that they had the roller just at the proper time. "We got it when [the road] was good and wet so it packed great." Mr. Miosi said one had been rented earlier, "But it was like wasting money because we couldn't work the roads then." Mr. May pointed out that in the previous year a roller had been rented at a cost of between $8,000 and $9,000.
Speaking to Mr. Miosi's point about the roller setting idle, Mr. May said, "There is only a little maintenance, even if it sits around." Mr. Miosi observed that owning a roller would save a lot of time and work. "The time those guys put in on the mountain road this year…three guys at a time. The roller would save work."
