Since taking office, getting a comprehensive plan for Whitehall has been a primary goal for Mayor Phil Smith.

The first steps to a plan were taken Friday afternoon when the village board unanimously accepted a bid from Chazen Companies, a Queensbury-based consultation firm, for $64,000.

After the meeting Smith said five companies had submitted proposals: Chazen; Barton & Loguidice, a consultation firm with numerous locations throughout New York; Saratoga-based LA Group; Schuylerville-based Flatley-Reed LLC; and Albany-based Laberge Group.

Smith said the bids ranged from $63,265 to $70,000. He added that the village was not bidding on best price.

“This was put out there as not to exceed $70,000,” Smith said. “We were looking for qualifications.”

The meeting opened with Smith allowing each of the three trustees in attendance – Dave Chaplin was absent – to state their top pick and explain why.
