TOWN OF WINTER

SPECIAL MEETING MINUTES                                         
OCTOBER 23, 2015

A special meeting of the Town of Winter Board of Supervisors was
called to order
at 10:30 a.m. by Chairman David Kinsley.  Present were board members
Ronald Barnaby and Terry Patenaude, Fabick Cat representative Ben
Knepper, Town Crew member David Martin and Clerk-Treasurer Lori Van
Winkle.

The purpose of the meeting was to discuss an excavator purchase.

Chairman Kinsley stated at our last meeting we had a motion and a
second to approve the purchase of a leased return model excavator,
upon discussion with Ben the following day,  we were informed that
both the lease returns were no longer available.  Later that same day
Chairman Kinsley received a phone call from Ben who indicated he and
his superiors discussed our situation and due to the long standing
relationship FABCO has had with the Town of Winter he was allowed to
offer an added discount of $10,000.00 on a new machine bringing the
cost to $118,000.00 to boot on a brand new machine with a  progressive
link thumb.  It includes the Premier 60 month 3000 hour warranty,
anything with Power train, Hydraulics or Electrical that goes wrong
the parts and labor are covered. Mileage is covered the first 6
months.  Ben added they have mechanics in Hayward and Weyerhaeuser and
stressed their company believes itís not about the sale, itís about
the service and support after the sale where they stand out compared
to other companies.  

Chairman Kinsley asked David Martin if heíd reviewed the information
on it and if this machine will meet our needs etc.  David Martin
stated it would and there was additional discussion on it, this
machine was a little bigger and heavier but an additional counter
weight is included.   Ben added this particular model does not require
def fluid which is one less thing to worry about and with this
warranty he didnít see us putting 3000 hours on in 5 years, which
basically means if anything goes wrong other than a wear item during
that time, itís covered.  

Ron Barnaby added that because of the warranty and how CAT equipment
retains its value that was something else to consider with our
decision too.  

Chairman Kinsley stated for the record, he did contact Nortrack and
Komatsu for comparison pricing as requested by Terry Patenaude.  
Nortracks similar model to this one was $170,000.00 base price. 
Komatsu never did return a call.

There were no other questions, therefore Chairman Kinsley motioned to
go ahead with the purchase of the New 316 EL Cat Excavator at a price
of $117,812.00 to boot with our trade, second by Ronald Barnaby, all
were in favor, motion carried.  (this unit includes a 48Ē bucket) We
will plan to finance with CAT with no pre-payment penalties, our
approximate annual payment will be $25,000.00.  Chairman Kinsley
signed the agreement.    Ben thanked the board and stated he will get
things rolling and be in touch.

Meeting was adjourned.                                    

                                                                      
                           Lori Van Winkle, Clerk
