Town of Bombay reacts to fuel theft

Requests State Police investigate

BOMBAY — The Town of Bombay has asked State Police to investigate the theft of fuel at the town garage. 

Taken were 100 gallons of diesel fuel and 35 gallons of gasoline, according to minutes from a recent Town Council meeting.

To prevent further theft, a security company has installed a trip sensor on the fuel door, and the fuel shed has been rewired to allow the power to be shut off.

Town Council members discussed the idea of installing trail cams, pending a report on prices. 

The Town Council also handled other issues:

SPEED SIGN: Drivers passing through Bombay will have to get used to a new road sign on County Route 4 in the near future.

The Town Council approved buying a solar-powered speed sign to be placed in the 35-mph zone entering the town, using up to $5,000 of casino compact funds.

WEB CONTRACT: Councilors renewed a three-year web-hosting contract with Jeff Boulais for a total of $251.64.

He will provide maintenance to the site and add the Town Council minutes each month.

CASINO FUNDS: The Town of Bombay has received $80,000 from casino compact funds.

LAWN CARE: The lawn-care contract with Rory Bero was extended for 2014-15. 

Town Council meetings are held the second Wednesday of the month at 7 p.m. at Town Offices, 379 Lantry Road, off Route 95.
