On Town Meeting day we will be asking the voters to approve a $550K bond for the construction of a new Town Office building. The informational meeting for this bond was held on Monday, February 23, 2015 at 7pm.
Select Board members present were Jon Bondy, Terry Riggs, Annette Kalinoski, Todd Pritsky and Sue Ferguson. Building Architect Rebecca Arnold was also present. About 20 members of the community attended. Site and building plans were handed out.
Jon Bondy spoke about the selection of this design and the overall budget. Terry explained details of the building estimates.
We received questions on drainage, septic, setback, schedule, energy efficiency and use of local contractors. We reviewed the bond payment and budget details. It was suggested that we design the building so a second floor could be added in the future, if necessary.
It was noted that the proposed building would fit in the gym so a powerful visual effect for Town Meeting might be to tape the outline of the building on the gym floor.
Meeting completed at 8pm.
