Good morning gentlemen.


I am not sure who the attached request should go to.  We are in the process of ordering materials for boardwalk sections of our trails, and have quality and cosmetic concerns with the two lowest bidders for plastic decking.  We thus request your approval to purchase from Shoreline Lumber, the 3rd lowest bidder.


FYI, forms are being laid for the concrete sections of our NE trail, and work has started on our restrooms.  You can see our progress at  


Best Regards,

Marty Cornell
