After some discussion, CM Asa withdrew the motion. CM Newcomb made a motion to not build the Community Center. CM Asa offered a second. Discussion followed from CM Newcomb & CM Asa they were not comfortable putting the town in debt.

CM Newcomb and CM Asa voted in favor of the motion; Mayor Siglin, CM Edwardson and CM Welte voted against the motion. Following more discussion, CM Welte made a motion to use Norb Olind Construction to build the new Lingle Community Center. CM Edwardson offered a second and the motion passed on a 3:0 vote. CM Asa abstained from the vote. CM Newcomb abstained from voting, as Newcomb’s Heating & Cooling Company has been listed as a subcontractor for both contractors.
