Zook Motors plans to construct new building

Zook Motors is planning to construct a new 48x96-foot building adjacent to its existing complex on Route 6 west of Kane.According to information unveiled Tuesday at a meeting of the Wetmore Township Board of Supervisors, the new building will serve as a "detail shop" for the longtime business.The supervisors endorsed the project, which now will go the McKean County Planning Commission for its approval.In other business at the 73-minute meeting at the township building on Spring Street in East Kane, the supervisors:*Rejected bids for the installation of a new roof on the entire township building.The supervisors now plan to seek "phone quotes" for prices for a new roof for only the office wing of the building.The supervisors budgeted $30,000 for a new roof, but the original bids exceeded this amount.Gateway Estate Maintenance of Campbelltown Road near Hutchins submitted one bid of $33,400 and an optional second bid of $34,200.Signet of Coudersport submitted one bid for $61,470 and a second proposal of $64,800.The bids by the companies are far apart because the materials included in the proposals are vastly different.*Agreed to utilize the services of the Jones Township Uniform Construction Code (UCC) Board of Appeals.The UCC calls for municipalities to have a Board of Appeals. Rather than create its own, Wetmore has decided to tap the Jones Township UCC Appeals Board for services, when necessary.*Agreed to create a Facebook account and a "simple" website on the internet.See full article by purchasing the June 6 edition of The Kane Republican.Wetmore TownshipBoard of SupervisorsWhen:  Tuesday, July 2Time:  7 p.m.Where: Township Building, Spring Street, East Kane
