The bid for the 1997 Ford E350 was awarded to Response Equipment Specialists for a price of $2,506.

In his monthly report, Mayor Dale Davis said he had received a formal complaint about a Council member from Town Clerk/Treasurer Summer Fellows, and this will be addressed following the town handbook starting Tuesday.

The December meeting was the last for Davis and council members Mac Smith, Joe Adams, and Tom Jenkin.

Local resident Bridget Morse presented Davis with a key to the town, and Maxine Samuelson thanked the governing body for their time in service.
