Every board member had received copies of each proposal on/before October 18, 2016. The board discussed what each proposal included or excluded. Concern was expressed over the distance and mileage reimbursements for Tisdel, as they are located in Canton, NY.

This includes but is not limited to attending monthly board meetings, regular visits to the site, etc. Project oversight and “clerk-of-the-works” is also included.
