At the June 3rd Montrose Borough meeting treatment of the first several items passed without incident.
During the street department report, Mr. DiPhillips reported that he had met with Leeward. The company planned to be passing through the downtown in August, apparently after the fourth. They were to keep Mr. DiPhillips apprised of the situation. The company was planning to bring three crews, at 167 and 706, and then to work both sides at once. (This was explained in response to a question by Mr. Granahan.) Mr. Reimel quipped that this sounded like a good time to take a vacation.
The “Three Little Bears” have filed a claim for loss occurring on May 22, 2013, so announced President Todd Glover at the Wednesday, June 12 meeting of Lanesboro borough council. Also present for the meeting were council members Dan Boughton, Regina Dilello, Dale Rockwell, and Colleen Y. Wilkes. Absent were council members Jason Fissel and David Glidden, as well as Mayor Chris Maby and Secretary/Treasurer Gail Hanrahan.
Announcement of the claim loss by “Three Little Bears” came about as President Glover opened the borough’s correspondence in the meeting’s early moments. His expression of surprise and incredulity were obvious as he read and re-read the letter from the borough’s insurance carrier. Council members, in turn, offered up various theories of who might be the “Three Little Bears,” and what might comprise the loss claimed. Each theory was discussed, but ultimately discarded as unsatisfactory to explain the Bears’ identity and loss.
