Officials of a Massachusetts town have delayed signing an agreement with an environmental-management company that has balked at obtaining a $50,000 surety bond on a project estimated to cost $5,000. The project involves dismantling a weigh scale that sits on private and public property. Among the options under consideration by the town's selectmen is to have the company sign a hold-harmless agreement in return for lowering the bond requirement to $5,000.
