In the agenda packet is a copy of a letter to the Board of Selectmen, from Board of Health Chairman Joseph Yacino, dated October 21, 2002, re: Transfer Station fee increase. The Board of Health asked that this item be taken off the agenda. They plan to meet again on it.

8. Meeting with Library Trustee Chair and Library Building Chair:
Library Building Committee Chair member Merritt “Pete” Tetreault and Library Trustee’s Chairman Eli Chesebrough came to the Board. Rich Preston had asked for this item on the agenda. Pete Tetreault started out by stating the Library Building Committee was formed due to Town Meeting. Library Director Ann Carlsson prepared the first grant application. The first grant would have allowed for a 15,140 square foot addition at a projected cost of 3.1 million dollars. The State did not accept the first grant application but let the Town re-submit the application. The second grant would allow for a 16,747 square foot addition at a projected cost of 4.3 million dollars. The States contribution would be 1.8 million and the Town would be responsible for 2.5 million. The Town did win the second grant. Pete Tetreault explained that Douglas was 38th on the list, but has now moved up to 19. Mr. Tetreault stated that the Library Building Committee started to be concerned that the building was going to be too big. Their recommendation was that they do not accept the grant and then came up with an alternative plan that would change the addition to 9,500 square feet at a projected cost of 2 million. The Town would have to come up with the full funding. Mr. Tetreault stated that he sent a letter to the Library Trustees with a courtesy copy to the Board of Selectmen outlining three recommendations; 1 – Follow the present course and use State matching funds as approved by the MA Library Commission, 2 – Fund the project solely with Town financing, or with a combination of Town and private funding, and 3 – Fund the entire project privately. The Library Building Committee is concerned that because things have changed with the State budget, it may be 2005 or 2006 before they see the funding. Pete Tetreault stated that he meet with Eli Chesebrough, she informed him that the Library Trustees had voted to extend $5,000 from their Library Incentive Grant (LIG) and Municipal Equalization Grant (MEG) money to Architect Robert Farley, to draw up new plans for a smaller library. Mr. Tetreault explained that the Trustees do not have all the leans for parking yet, and this would be plan “B”. They would like to talk to the Capital Plan Committee to see how this would affect the Town. Eli Chesebrough explained that the Trustees have not made up their minds yet. Mr. Tetreault stated he feels the Trustees plan to look at a plan “B” is redundant. He stated the Building Committee was formed for this reason, stating they now have two committees going in different directions. He said it is not a good situation and it bothers him. Shirley Mosczynski asked how much money the Library Building Committee has spent so far. Mr. Tetreault stated they have spent $30,000 for the Architect initially with an additional $6,000 to cover amendments (ie: additional parking) stipulated by the State. Rich Preston asked if $5,000 would be enough to get the drawing done. Eli Chesebrough stated that Mr. Farley will do his best. Rich Preston said he can understand the reasoning for an alternate plan and asked Ms Chesebrough if the Trustees had talked to the Building Committee about this. Ms Chesebrough stated that she had spoken to Mr. Tetreault and they will let him know as soon as the drawings are done. Ron Forget stated that if a 4.3 Million project gets us a bigger building, with help from the State, the Town paying about the same; why not get the bigger building. Ms Chesebrough stated it could change with time. The State will always only pay 1.8 million. Ron Forget asked if they went with the smaller version, wouldn’t they still have to add on later. Ms Chesebrough stated that Mr. Farely did touch on that issue. Pete Tetreault said that he got UniBank to allow parking, everyone but one establishment is on board with parking. He then stated that he does not agree with Mr. Preston, that additional money should be spent for an alternate plan; the money should be put in a trust. Mr. Preston stated the two Committees should be working together on this and asked where the Building Committee stands on this issue. Mr. Tetreault stated that he did not know, within the Building Committee are Library Trustee members. Ron Forget stated he agrees with Mr. Tetreault, saying it is not cost effective to build a smaller library. Paula Brouillette stated they need to have a common view on what is going on and agreed with Mr. Forget; stating if we get more space for same money – go for it. Eli Chesebrough stated that with additional space they need additional staff, heating, etc. Paula Brouillette stated we have the time; these things should be looked at together. Past Building Committee Chair Perry Coppola addressed the Board; she stated that she feels it was the Building Committee’s job to get the grant; most of the Committee agrees with the Library Trustees about looking into an alternative plan. There was a suggestion to have a sub-committee work with Robert Farley and the Library Trustees. Ron Forget stated he has no problems as long as it includes what it would cost based on future growth in 10 years. Ms Coppola stated that plan “B” would not have to wait until 2006. Ron Forget stated they were still not looking at future additions. Library Building Committee Member and Library Trustee Member Ramona LaChapelle addressed the Board. She stated that she had spoken to Mr. Farley and she enforced upon him that they might need to add an addition in the future and that should be part of plan “B”. Ron Forget asked at what cost, and reminded them that the Town would be footing the bill. Pete Tetreault stated that Mr. Farley could project the operational costs; and added that Mr. Farley has done a great job for the Town. Mr. Tetreault said he had asked if the Library Building Committee stays in effect until the grant is accepted by the Town. He stated that Mr. Mahony had told him yes. Shirley Mosczynski stated that she is concerned because $36,000 has already been spent; she would hope the two committees will come together with a plan. Ms Chesebrough stated they are not ready yet, they will use the $5,000 to come up with an alternative plan, and then bring it to the Library Building Committee.

9. Cook Street – Recommendations:
Taken out of order after item 7 due to extra time available before Item 8. In the agenda packet is a copy of the Inquiry and Complaint Form from Rosanna Windham, 9 Cook Street, dated October 7, 2002, re: Cook Street Traffic; a copy of a memo to Police Chief Patrick Foley, Highway Superintendent Edward Therrien, and Town Engineer Bill Cundiff, from Administrative Secretary Jane Brule, dated October 8, 2002, re: Cook Street Traffic; a copy of a letter to Rosanna Windham, from Administrative Secretary Jane Brule, dated October 8, 2002; a copy of a letter to The Board of Selectmen, from Police Chief Patrick Foley, dated October 29, 2002, re: Inquiry and Complaint; a copy of a letter to the Board of Selectmen, from Executive Administrator Kenneth Mahony, dated November 7, 2002, re: Cook Street; and a copy of a memo to Ken Mahony, from Bill Cundiff, dated November 8, 2002, re: Cook Street. This agenda item was discussed at the last meeting when Ken Mahony gave a recommendation to the Board. Since then the Board has received a memo from Town Engineer Bill Cundiff which disagreed with Mr. Mahony’s recommendation. Rich Preston stated that Bill Cundiff’s response falls within the line they had been discussing at their last meeting. He said if they decide to make the traffic flow one way, they need to discuss which direction it will flow. Edward Therrien suggested eliminating parking on both sides of the street. Shirley Mosczynski stated the problem occurs when the residents have company – where do they park. She warned that if they eliminate parking on this street, they will have to look at other streets. Ron Forget asked if the congestion was due to the construction. Shirley Mosczynski noted that in Rosanna Windham’s inquiry she stated the problem dates back to when Jack Kelly was on the Board. It was stated that there is a bottle neck on this street, and emergency vehicles are the number one priority, safety issues must be met. Paula Brouillette stated they still do not have enough information. She suggested that Mr. Mahony meet with Fire Chief Don Gonynor, Police Chief Patrick Foley, Town Engineer Bill Cundiff, and Highway Superintendent Edward Therrien and come back to the board with a consensus. She asked that they come back at the Boards next meeting, scheduled for December 3rd.

The contract was awarded to Borgard Construction and they will start work the first week in December and should finish around April 15th. They were asking permission to place signs along Douglas roads. They are trying not to impact the residents of Sutton or Douglas and have asked the large number of trucks to only use Whitins Rd. to Rt. 146, no trucks on North or Gilboa Streets. They estimated there would be 10 trucks per hour during working hours for the first phase. Phase II will start in the spring. Phase II will also impact Manchaug. Along with the signs, Sutton plans to have two police officers on Hough Rd.; only allowing dump trucks through. They will keep the Board informed. Edward Therrien asked if the signs would go on the Town line. Ms Nedoroscik stated they would like to put them further into Douglas. She told the Board to feel free to call them with any questions.

Shirley Mosczynski made mention of the letter to the Board from Finance Committee Chair Pamela Holmes asking the Board to consider delaying the Special Town Meeting (STM) because it had come to their attention that there would not be enough time for the Finance Committee to review the articles and get the information flyer out to the residents of Douglas. Pam Holmes asked how much notice is needed to give Town Clerk to hold a STM. Shirley Mosczynski was concerned because she was under the impression STM vote was needed as soon as possible. School Committee member Derek Brown stated that the original request came to them from the School Building Committee. School Building Committee member Mitch Cohen stated he felt it was very important to get the mailing out to inform the residents, but they must have an answer by December 15th. Suzanne Kane explained that Town Clerk Christine Furno stated December 10 was a doable date and it would give the Finance Committee enough time to get the informational flyer out. Ron Forget called Town Moderator Jerome Jussame and he concurred that December 10th was OK.
• Article 1 – Prior Year Bills: Rich Mathieu came before the Board and explained the prior year bills in article 1. Paula Brouillette stated that prior year bills usually do not go through the Finance Committee as stated in the article. Rich Mathieu explained that free cash has not yet been certified; the monies will be paid back once it is. Paula Brouillette stated that this is abnormal from past practice. Pam Holmes stated that usually the money comes out of the account from which it was originated. Paula Brouillette went on to explain that the Reserve Fund is a particular fund; it is cleaner to take the money from the departments funds. The Reserve Fund is intended for unanticipated changes to accounts money is to come from.
• Article 2 – Water / Sewer Operations: The Board was informed that Water / Sewer Director Tony Gressak will be taking advantage of the early retirement program. This article is for a potential contract for Mr. Gressak to stay on and do consulting work. Paula Brouillette would like Ken Mahony to look at and shed more light on this item. She said it is not a housekeeping item. Ron Forget agreed but for a different reason, stating he feels if Mr. Gressak is kept on it’s telling the person hired that he is not good enough to do the job. Shirley Mosczynski feels the concern is that if Mr. Gressak retires he will be leaving early, this article is to cover the Sewer project. Ron Forget stated that if that is the case, he has no problems. Paula Brouillette stated that she needs more information and wondered if there will be more requests for money.
• Article 3 – Board of Health Sanitation Fee Account: Rich Mathieu explained that due to the increase in Title 5’s on the 40B at Rt. 16, the Board of Health is looking to amend the vote from the May 20, 2002 Annual Town Meeting. Pam Holmes asked what amount has been collected year to date and what money has gone out. Rich Mathieu stated that he does not know, today he collected the July receipts from Town Treasurer Sharon Brotherton.
Rich Preston made a motion to move the Special Town Meeting date to December 10, 2002. Ron Forget seconded the motion. All – aye. Rich Preston made a motion to open the Warrant for the Special Town Meeting for December 10, 2002. Ron Forget seconded the motion. All – aye.
• Article 4 – New School Project:
Rich Mathieu explained that this article is written in a manner to allow for a determination by the Division of Local Services of the Massachusetts Department of Revenue (DOR) or allow the Town to vote to exempt the amounts from Proposition 2 ½. Mitch Cohen stated the amount in the article should be $1,994,523. Pam Holmes asked about the $65,000 for bonding costs that the Town Treasurer was to pick up; has it been taken off? Rich Mathieu was not sure. Mitch Cohen stated that he had heard a letter would be written but the Building Committee has not reviewed it yet. Paula Brouillette went over the Executive Administrator’s recommendation in the agenda packet. She explained that this article, if passed, will increase the tax rate by 23 cents. The Town has been trying to hold it at $4.00. Operational costs are something still being looked at. She recommended splitting the article into two articles which she feels will allow for the completion of the building and look at furniture, etc. later. Paula Brouillette, using the figures given by the School Building Committee, suggested using $1,309,523 for the first article to complete the building and $685,000 for the second article for added technology and furniture. Ron Forget stated he does not feel it is an either/or situation; all is needed. Mitch Cohen stated the requested amount for the technology and furniture is needed by mid-December so the technology people can start their consulting with a budget in hand. Equipment and furniture must be ordered by March. It was stated that if the $685,000 does not pass, they just need to shuffle funds. Rich Preston stated that he supports Paula Brouillette’s proposal, saying they are still bringing the total amount to the Town. He noted that there is always the possibility that the full amount would not pass, this gives the people a compromise. Paula Brouillette made a motion to split article 4 into two articles; Article 4 requesting $1,309,523 and Article 5 requesting $685,000. Rich Preston seconded the motion. Mitch Cohen, on behalf of the School Building Committee asked that the Selectmen schedule the over-ride as soon as possible. Stating CMS wants an answer by December 15th. On the vote: Ron Forget – no, Edward Therrien – no, all other members – aye. Vote passed. On the Ballot question there was a discussion on whether to ask for a determination from the DOR or go to the Town for an over-ride. DOR appeal process; allows Douglas to go to Town Meeting or make a direct appeal to DOR rather than going to Town Meeting. Ron Forget asked what the turn around time is. Rich Mathieu stated he did not know but could call the DOR for information. Rich Mathieu stated the appeal process is only good for one time. Pam Holmes stated that the people need a clear meaning on what they are voting on. When asked what the time limit was for posting a date for the Ballot Question, someone thought it was 30 days. Ron Forget made a motion to set the date for the Ballot Question on December 19, 2002. Rich Preston seconded the motion. All – aye. Ron Forget made a motion to have two Ballot Questions for December 19, 2002. Paula Brouillette seconded the motion. All – aye. Rich Preston made a motion to close the Warrant for the Special Town Meeting, December 10, 2002. Ron Forget seconded the motion. All – aye.
