The project is to be discussed when board meets at 7 p.m. Thursday in Town Hall in Lake Katrine.
The proposal calls for Legacy Building Solutions to be paid $144,475 to build a rigid, frame-supported fabric membrane structure and another $2,500 for engineering costs.
Town Highway Superintendent Frank Petramale said bids still need to be sought for installing a foundation and designing a wall for the shed.
Two existing sheds at the town of Ulster highway complex currently are used by the town to store up to 1,500 tons of salt and by the school district to store about...30 tons.
The town currently uses an 80-by-80-foot structure that will be torn down in favor of a 75-by-100-foot shed that will be shared.
The new shed will hold salt for both the town and school district, town Supervisor James Quigley said.
Petramale said the current town shed was constructed in 1991 and has exceeded its useful life.
“We’ve had engineering reports done ... and they’ve found the building should be replaced,” he said.
Petramale said some of the installation work will be done by town Highway Department crews to reduce costs.
