The Building Committee tested this selectman’s dedication today by holding its meeting at 6:30 AM this morning.
The Building Committee is geared towards presenting their proposal for a new DPW garage at the annual town meeting (ATM) next April. The current iteration of the garage is basically the same HNTB plan from before, but with two fewer bays and a smaller generator. The HVAC is being examined as well.
This morning’s pricing estimates from town consultant, Shane Nolan of Daedalus, indicate that a block building and a metal buildings are close to same price (ca. $100,000 difference), but lifespan of the block building is substantially longer.
The committee reviewed plans showing how the current equipment would be housed in proposed garage.
This observer was impressed with the level of understanding of the issues exhibited by the committee members.
Next meeting is 11/26 at 6:30 AM.
