Fredonia extends SymLink pact

Fredonia has agreed to extend a technology services contract with SymLink, the Jamestown company it hired in June amid criticism that village-based DFT didn’t get the job.

The village Board of Trustees voted 3-1 on Monday to extend the pact until June 30, 2024. The original contract ran for one year.

Trustees EvaDawn Bashaw, Roger Britz and Scott Johnston voted “yes,” while James Lynden voted “no.” Lynden initially sought to table the resolution, but no one went along with that.

The extension keeps in place the base rate of $363 per month that the village pays to SymLink for the services.

“This company’s been doing a really good job with us,” said Britz. “Our treasurer and our staff is very happy with that, and locking them into a three year contract at a fixed rate is helpful to our budgeting process.”

Johnston agreed that the three-year term was beneficial to the village, calling it a “smart move.”
