Manchester gets one bid, delays backhoe action

The Manchester Town Council opened the only bid it received for its planned purchase of a backhoe at Wednesday night's council meeting but delayed a decision on the purchase in order to allow time for some comparison shopping.

The Milton James Co. of Baltimore, bid $44,951 for a John Deere 310-D loader backhoe. The bid also offered the town an $8,500 trade-in, for a total bid package of $36,451.

Town Manager Terry Short said the offer was within the $42,000 budgeted for the purpose.

However, the council delayed making a decision after Councilman Robert Kolodziejski offered to make some phone calls to see if he could find a backhoe at a better price.

Yesterday, Mr. Kolodziejski said the council would probably accept the bid because his calls had not turned up a better deal.

Councilman to form personnel committee

Manchester Councilman Robert Kolodziejski, who is responsible for town personnel issues and economic development, is forming a committee to work on related issues.

"Anyone that's interested in working on the committee, please feel free to call me," he said at last week's Town Council meeting.

The committee will address town personnel matters first, he said.

People interested in serving on the committee may call Mr. Kolodziejski at the Town Hall, 239-3200.
