A meeting of the Capital Improvement Committee (CIC) was held on January 15, 2013 in the Municipal Center Resource Room. Mr. Vinson called the meeting to order at 2:00 PM.

PRESENT: Kent Vinson (Chairman), Ellie Chesebrough, Mark Dunleavy (Vice-Chairman), Nancy Lane, Shirley Mosczynski, Mike Guzinski (Town Administrator)
ABSENT: Paula Brouillette

Review FY14 Capital Project Requests
Mr. Guzinski reviewed the town’s financial situation. He stated that next week the Board of Selectmen would be discussing the possibility of putting an override question before the voters. If there were an override, a portion of that would be devoted to capital projects. Until that is decided, it is not clear as to what funding will be available for capital projects. Most of the capital projects requests from the town departments have been received.
The requests were reviewed and discussed. Ms. Chesebrough and Mr. Vinson asked for clarification on whether or not each department request reflected a safety issue, whether or not certain requests were required by law, and would a request generate cost savings.
Options for painting the fire station were discussed. The condition of the police cruisers was discussed. Grants were discussed. Safety and the School Department’s link to the Police and Fire Departments were discussed. It was decided to review the requests and invite the department heads with new requests to a meeting. Once the requests had been reviewed, they would be ranked as was done last year.

Approval of the Minutes: November 7, 2012
Ms. Mosczynski made a motion to approve the Capital Improvement Committee meeting minutes of November 7, 2012 as presented. Mr. Dunleavy seconded the motion. Vote: Aye: 4, Mr. Vinson abstained.

Other Business
The next CIC meeting will be January 29, 2013 at 2:00 PM. The School Dept., Fire Dept. and Police Dept. will be invited to present at this meeting. Water/Sewer, Building Facilities and Highway Dept. will be invited to the February 12, 2013 meeting.

Ms. Lane made a motion to adjourn the meeting at 2:38 PM. Ms. Mosczynski seconded the motion. Vote: Unanimous.

Respectfully submitted,
