He briefly summarized the project of making the Library ADA accessible and the history of his work on the plan with the Library Board of Trustees. He discussed the process moving forward. A question and answer period followed.

Durland Van Voorhis
Mr. Charlie Van Voorhis joined the meeting. He gave a brief description of the work his firm does. He discussed the project and noted some similarities to a recent project. A question and answer period followed.

A discussion was held regarding whether to rank at this time. The Committee agreed that they would table ranking until further information was received on references. In addition, members wanted time to further review information that was left. The proposed schedule was reviewed. It was agreed to table the ranking until the June 15, 2011 meeting.
The question was raised as to whether the members that are absent could participate in the ranking if they watch the video of this meeting. Mr. McConnell will look into this.
Some discussion was held regarding the ranking process as well as the processing of seeking grant funding. There was some question as to whether this process was to determine the ability of being able to accomplish this project for the originally estimated 1 million dollars. It was noted that the Town is required by law to go through this procurement process. It was noted that the estimate would be determined by construction drawings.
It was agreed that the Committee would go with the ranking as previously proposed as first, second and third.

It was agreed to table the minutes until the next meeting.

Ms. Brown made a motion to adjourn at 9:23 PM. Ms. Howe seconded the motion. Vote unanimous.

Respectfully submitted,
