3. Building/Facilities Manager: Capital Request
Mr. Adam Furno presented his capital requests as Building Facilities Manager in order of priority. First priority is the Municipal Center parapet masonry repair. The masonry is deteriorating all around the walkway and over the doorway. Second priority is the gym window replacement. Adam has requested this himself for three years. Third priority is air duct cleaning in the Municipal Center. He does not believe that this has ever been done.
Fourth priority is the post office exterior/interior painting for $23,000. There may be a funding source for this work. Mr. Guzinski stated that the Town has a new five-year lease with the post office for $47,000/year. The painting project should be able to be funded by the lease payments.
Fifth priority is the main roof of the Municipal Center at $310,000. It cost $1,600 to patch it after last winter. There are now bubbles forming pockets on the roof. At the same time, Adam would like the two large louvers on the roof removed. They do not have any function.
Sixth priority is the Police Department windows at $75,000. Much of the engineering has been done. Seventh priority is the Municipal Center/Police Dept. air conditioning replacement for $70,000. Eighth priority is masonry repair. Ninth is the Municipal Center first floor electrical system. Tenth would be to replace post office and senior center windows. Lead and asbestos abatements will be needed. Eleventh is the post office parking lot reclamation and paving. Twelfth is the post office and Senior Center air conditioning replacement. The Senior Center does not have any air conditioning at all. Thirteenth is the paving of the Municipal Center/Police Dept. parking lot and removal of the island. Fourteenth is the elevator wing roof and fifteenth is the Municipal Center second floor heating and air conditioning units.
The items for the Municipal Center total $771,000.
