MARCH 20, 2013

A meeting of the Building Facilities Construction Committee (BFCC) was held on
March 20, 2013 at the Municipal Center. Mr. Holland called the meeting to order at 7:03 PM.

PRESENT: Sean Holland (Chairman), Shirley Mosczynski (Vice Chairman), Linda Brown, Pawel Chudzik, Ed Gouin, Virginia Howe, Matt Sargent, William Cundiff (Town Engineer)

There will be a joint meeting of the BFCC and School Building Committee tomorrow at 7:00 PM. There will be a site walk at the construction site at 5:00 PM. There is an issue with the windows. The windows that were pressure tested did not meet the new state threshold for a green building. There will be an update at tomorrow night’s meeting. A discussion was held.
Ms. Mosczynski said that Massachusetts School Building Assistance (MSBA) is visiting each month. Mr. Cundiff stated that the bids opened for the furniture and equipment. Ms. Mosczynski stated that they should have a technology vendor by May 1, 2013.

Mr. Cundiff presented a copy of an email from Matt Weidell. The plans, specifications and bid document are at 100%. All MassDOT comments have been addressed. The one issue concerns the easements from the four property abutters. An easement plan and appraisals of the properties are being prepared. Included in the packet is a draft warrant article for the May 6, 2013 Town Meeting. The goal is to have construction completed before September. This is a Chapter 90 funded project.

The RFP in the packet has been reviewed by town counsel, Mike Guzinski and the Highway Dept. Superintendent. Mr. Cundiff stated that they are looking to solicit three price quotes from engineers by April 12, 2013 to do a design for repair of the stone arch culvert. This is also a Chapter 90 funded project.

Ms. Brown made a motion to accept the February 20, 2013 Building Facilities Construction Committee meeting minutes as presented. Ms. Mosczynski seconded the motion. Vote: Unanimous.

The next meetings will be March 21, 2013, April 17, 2013 and May 15, 2013.

Mr. Cundiff stated that they are moving forward with the Main Street sidewalk project. The goal is to try to get something accomplished there this summer.

There is nothing new to report regarding the Municipal Center space.

Ms. Mosczynski made a motion to adjourn the meeting at 7:20 PM. Mr. Gouin seconded the motion. Vote: Unanimous.

Respectfully submitted,
