FEBRUARY 9, 2010

A joint meeting of the Building Facilities Construction Committee and the Capital Improvement Committee was held on February 9, 2010 in the Municipal Center Resource Room. The meeting was called to order at 7:02 PM.

(Building Facilities Construction Committee): William McConnell, Shirley Mosczynski, Virginia Howe, Sean Holland, William Cundiff (Town Engineer).
(Capital Improvement Committee): Paula Brouillette, Don Gonynor (Chairman), Mark Dunleavy (Vice-Chairman), Shirley Mosczynski, Ellie Chesebrough, Dean Iacobucci, Betty Ann
Therrien, Mike Guzinski (Executive Administrator).
(Building Facilities Construction Committee): Daniel Heney.

Chief Gonynor noted that the Capital Improvement Committee is tasked with the job of rating the projects before them to put before the Town and wanted to get some input from the Building Facilities Construction Committee.
Mr. Cundiff noted the Comprehensive Building Use Study report which was developed that indicated a high priority for additional space for the schools. This is separate from the municipal buildings. The School Building Committee is currently addressing the issues of the school building project. He noted that high on the list of priorities was the Police Department and Highway Garage as well as the Library with the ADA requirements.
Chief Gonynor noted the possibility of bids coming in at a lower cost than estimated. He suggested having Clark Rowell (Unibank) come in to discuss the debt and the impact these projects would make. Ms Brouillette noted the Board of Selectmen has been talking to Water & Sewer about the options for extending the sewer line down to the Fire Department to meet the need of a Safety Complex as well as commercial property in that area. She emphasized the need to get as much information as possible to the public so they can make an informed decision. Ms. Chesebrough noted discussions have taken place regarding the possibility of bundling projects. This process was discussed.
Mr. Cundiff suggested a feasibility study be done to evaluate what would be appropriate and some alternatives. The process was discussed. It was noted that there should be more of a concept design versus a feasibility study. Discussion held. Mr. Cundiff noted that included in the report was an estimated design and construction cost for each design item and suggested that this be updated and presented to the Capital Improvements Committee. Mr. Guzinski also suggested the Committee determine what exactly they want Clark Rowell to take a look at. Issues of sewer extension were discussed.
Ms. Therrien made a motion that the consensus of the Capital Improvement Committee is to move forward with a feasibility study to include the Safety Complex for the Fire, Police and Highway Garage and the Library project to present to the voters at the Town Meeting. Ms. Brouillette seconded the motion. Vote unanimous. Mr. Guzinski and Mr. Cundiff will work on the scope of work to be completed. The Building Facilities Construction Committee was thanked for their time.
The Building Facilities Construction Committee portion of the meeting concluded at 7:46 PM.

Respectfully submitted,
