The Ayer Conservation Commission asked Lycott Environmental to provide a quote for adding the treatment of Watershield and White and Yellow Lilies to the existing contract that is in place for the treatment of Fanwort and Milfoil on Flannagan Pond in the Spring of 2012.
That is good news and I am thrilled that the ConsCom is proactive regarding this issue.
Lycott came back with the quote and my enthusiasm was dulled with the revelation of dollar figure. It will cost an additional $18,800 to treat the Watershield and the Lilies. This is 60% of the figure already contracted, so it is far too large for a simple change order.
Becky has added this item to the Conservation Commission’s agenda for Thursday evening’s meeting (October 20th) this week at Ayer Town Hall. I am eager to hear what the members say. I hope to see some of you there.
Thanks again to the Commission for looking ahead on this matter.
