In October of 2005 Mr. Sicard started and completed well within contract limits the first stage of a 2-stage project involving the replacement of water lines on Valentine Ave. in the Village of Derby Line. During this time Mr. Sicard installed a temporary system that would allow the affected residents access to water at all times. At no time were the affected residents without water into their homes.
On one occasion while Mr. Sicard and his crew were working, a water main on another street broke. Without hesitation, Mr. Sicard pulled his crew and immediately went to work with the Village crew to repair the broken main. Because the Village crew had assisted Mr. Sicard's crew on the Valelntine Ave. project, Mr. Sicard did not bill the Village for the work done to dig up and repair the broken line.
The contract with Mr. Sicard stated that the second phase of the project would begin in May of 2006 only if the Village was satisfied with the work in Phase 1. The Village is happy to report that contact has been made, and Mr. Sicard will begin work on Phase 2 in the spring of 2006.
The Village Trustees are satisfied with Mr. Sicard's work and will continue to consider his bids on future projects undertaken in the Village. It is so pleasant to have the affected residents on Valentine Ave. talk about their water quality with praise rather than complaints.
