Town vehicles to get a bath

MEDWAY

There's nothing like a sparkling clean vehicle.

Bidding has opened for a prefabricated vehicle wash bay to be installed at Medway's Department of Public Works highway barn. The 60-by 30-foot facility should cost about $200,000 installed, including design and construction as well as all associated electrical and plumbing work.

Although the bid information stipulates the facility should be constructed by June 30, it also says the award of the contract is subject to a state grant. Medway received promises of several state grants totaling over $1 million last year and several groups within the town are scrambling to get state approval and use the money by June 30.

Other projects include improving playing fields, work at Choate Park and mapping out the future of the house and barn at 2B Oak St., which the town acquired through eminent domain.
