      (2) BIDS FOR GENERATOR INSTALLATION: Richard Michaud reported he has received price quotes and believes Selectmen should request $45,000 on the Town Meeting Warrant. Karl noted that he had previously mentioned a North Berwick Company and suggested they should be asked for a quote. Nancy said that if the money is approved by the Town meeting they will go out for official bids. Roger Roy inquired if this price is for all three generators or just one. Nancy said it is for the one at the school, which will require much more power that the Fire Station and Town Hall. John Moore suggested that they should not award the electrician the excavating bid because he will get paid for that. The fact that the enclosure was pre-formed and not constructed on site was discussed.
