Stockholm to contribute $985 for Tri-Town Chiller Barrel


WINTHROP - One month after tabling a request from Brasher’s town supervisor for a nearly $1,000 contribution for improvements to the Tri-Town Community Center’s chiller barrel, Stockholm town officials have now agreed to pay $985 for the project.

In December, Stockholm Town Supervisor Clark S. Decker said that the recreation commission had opened bids for planned updates to the chiller barrel, and the low bid was from Goodrich Refrigeration, Brasher Falls, at $25,985.

Mr. Decker said that Brasher Town Supervisor M. James Dawson said the Brasher Town Board would allocate $25,000 from its casino gaming compact fund revenues for the project, but had suggested that Stockholm contribute the remaining amount.

The funding request was tabled last month after board members initially were concerned about where the monies would be coming from.

Board member Robert J. McCuin made the motion for approval of the contribution Tuesday evening.

“I second that motion because I’ve seen a lot in the last couple of years (at the Community Center.) It’s moving, things are good, so I second that motion to do it,” board member Fernando Rufa said. “(The chiller barrel) was originally for the ice. The other one is pretty old, so if it breaks down, we’re in dire need of it. ... It probably wouldn’t come until March or April, after they take the ice out.”
