Lewiston buys water meters in bulk


Niagara Gazette — Johnson said the town's policy was properly followed despite not securing three bids because the town made every effort to receive the proper numbers.

"There have to be three written quotes," Johnson said. "But the comptroller's office will be OK with this because if three written quotes aren't available, as long as we can show we went to three different suppliers, we're alright."

Acting Supervisor Gary Catlin agreed with Johnson, saying it's not uncommon for a specialized product like these particular water meters to be sold using territorial lines, keeping the town from following its own rules for purchasing.

In other town news, the final 2013 work session of the town board will begin at 6 p.m. Monday in Town hall, 1375 Ridge Road, Lewiston.

Beginning in January, Supervisor-elect Dennis Brochey will take his seat won in the November election, becoming the first Democrat to sit on the board since Fred Newlin held the same job in 2009.
