FUEL CONTAINMENT SYSTEM AT TOWN GARAGE: The fuel containment system is used by the Cross Country Cruisers and owned by the town and is in need of replacement. Held reported that if the Dept. of Commerce were to inspect it, the town would be fined and it would be our legal obligation to replace it. The CCC have volunteered to pay ½ of the $800.00 replacement fee. Motion by Held, second by Bauers to provide ½ of the money, up to $400.00 to replace the tank. Unanimously approved.
