Sublette board buys windows, sets Trick or Treat hours


SUBLETTE — The Ellice Dinges Center in Sublette will be getting new windows after the village board the approved the purchase on Sept. 13.

The Sublette Village Board met for its regular monthly meeting on Sept. 13 in the Ellice Dinges Center. All board members except Jeff Myers were present.

Sublette Village Trustee Julie Kessel presented a bid for windows from RP Lumber and a bid from Klein Construction for installation. The total cost of the project is $10,969.

The motion to purchase the new windows was approved.
