CAPITAL IMPROVEMENT COMMITTEE
MEETING MINUTES
March 31, 2014

A meeting of the Capital Improvement Committee (CIC) was held on March 31, 2014 in the Municipal Center Resource Room. Mr. Vinson called the meeting to order at 3:15 PM.

ATTENDANCE
PRESENT: Kent Vinson (Chairman), Paula Brouillette, Ellie Chesebrough, John Furno (Vice Chairman), Don Gonynor, Shirley Mosczynski, Mike Guzinski (Town Administrator), Jeanne Lovett (Finance Director)
ABSENT: Brandon Auger, Nancy Lane

1. Rate Capital Projects Submitted for Funding in FY15
Mr. Guzinski and Ms. Lovett looked at the rankings from the last meeting to determine which items qualify as bondable projects. Mr. Guzinski presented a chart for those projects in the order in which they were ranked. Two categories: capable of bonding and not capable of bonding. He included other available funds and their effect on the General Fund. The requests do exceed the funding available. Ms. Mosczynski would like to know how much the Water/Sewer Enterprise Fund would be contributing to their Capital requests. Mr. Gonynor does not feel the Town should contribute to the funding of a Water/Sewer Master Plan.
A discussion was held regarding the status of the grant application for the Self Contained Breathing Apparatus (SCBA). The result should be known by September, 2014. It was the consensus of the Committee to not borrow for the SCBA this year.
The fire suppression system and renovations in the Municipal Center were discussed at length. Mr. Vinson wants to know if the building will meet code if the fire suppression systems are not done in the gym and the Police Station.
Support was given for the Library renovation project under a debt exclusion.
Mr. Gonynor would like to add a safety ranking to the Capital ranking worksheet.
