Not a major revamp of the kindasorta unofficially "official" website (disowned by the Town for legal purposes), but you might notice a few changes here and there. More links to specific parts of municipal government in the navbar above, new content in each section, maybe even some changed graphics (if we get crazy).
We're also implementing a new email regime to make contacting folks at the Town easier and improve electronic transparency.
Select Board members present were Jon Bondy, Todd Pritsky, Sue Ferguson, Annette Kalinoski and Terry Riggs.
Other attendees were Elaine Sweet, Carlton Ferguson and Rebecca Arnold.
The layout of the Lister’s room was updated replacing the individual workstations with a central table and adding the ability to project work onto the wall, probably using large-scale monitors.
Rebecca presented the preliminary building code analysis. The building will be officially classified as 5A Business. We asked to have the fire extinguishers in the primary rooms be recessed into the walls.
The building code that covers public records storage (NFPA 232 6.1.2) has been updated and the vault now requires a 6hr fire rating. This means we cannot reuse the door of our current vault. Rebecca is going to check on the possibility of the town getting a waiver.
