Kent stated that Sheerr McCrystal Palson (SMP) would come to
next weeks meeting and would come as often as necessary
during the project. The Committee agreed to wait until next weeks
meeting to determine how often to meet with SMP.
Kent then reviewed with the committee his conversations with
SMP about Mr. Robinsons property. Kent walked the property
with SMP and the architect felt that it would not be a problem
building there. Architect wants to know wetlands in the Town Centers
existing and proposed property.
Gordon stated that the architect would need to get surveyor if
he wont accept plans he has.
Although Kent met with Mr. Robinson, a decision was not reached
at all concerning the Towns acquisition of the five (5)
acres. Kent will go back next Sunday and attempt to get a dollar
amount from Mr. Robinson.
Kent opened for discussion the budgeted numbers for the Town
Hall project. Mike explained the total budget for Town Hall is
$75,000. The $75,000 is comprised of $40,000 included in the original
$80,000 warrant discussed in last weeks meeting; plus $35,000
appropriated two (2) years ago.
Mike explained that for the Committees budgeted numbers,
$3,700 had been encumbered last year with $5,000 budgeted this
year. To date, the Committee has spent $1,730, leaving a total
left to spend of $6,970. Of this amount, it was approved in last
weeks meeting that $2,000 would go towards the $12,000 cost
of SMPs work on the Town Centers initial plan. The
balance remaining for expenditure is $4,970.
Kent reviewed the work to be done on Town Hall: painting, roofing,
heating, back stairs, and an addition. The back stairs are not
needed if addition is done. The addition will have its own heating
system and has a budgeted cost of $35,000. The work done to date
has cost $31,449.92. It would cost an additional $2,600 to insulate
The heating system needs to be hooked up for winter. The Committee
needs to have someone look at the possibility of having two (2)
zones for heating the Town Hall. There are two furnaces
one for the basement that has been disconnected; and one for upstairs.
Currently, the basement is only used for storage.
Cost for the roof is $6,500 plus $2,600 if 1/2" thick plywood
