V.      UNFINISHED BUSINESS

        A.      Volunteer Park

The committee discussed running wire to the gazebos.  Could wires come off an existing pole?  Is there a need for full power?  The committee agreed to ask what the Park and Recreation Commission wants to do about lighting.  The committee talked about buying a generator to be used at the park.  Mr. Crouch said he would do some research on the generator.  

Mr. Crouch was happy to report that there has been no vandalism lately.  He will have the grant balance at the next meeting.  


B.      Salt Shed

Mr. Crouch stated that Mr. Norton is probably ready to start construction on the shed.




C.      Police Dept. Renovations

Shelving has been put up in the evidence room; ceiling tiles have been installed in the evidence room; hallway is done.  Doors that were delivered did not fit.  Waiting for new doors.

Mr. Nelson said he was not satisfied with panel covers and there are still holes in the walls.  Mr. Crouch will schedule a walk-through at the police department.

Still need prices for other improvements in the Chief’s area.  Things are getting done a little at a time.  Mr. Howes will give Mr. Crouch the name of a plumber.

  D.   Broad Brook Elementary School – Restroom Upgrades & Asbestos Abatement

Mr. Howes reported that the town schools received about $9,000 in state money to remove asbestos.  There will be enough money for the renovation of eight bathrooms instead of four.  The only thing that might require an added appropriation is there are any “surprises” when they start tearing up the bathrooms.

IX.     TOPICS FROM THE FLOOR

Mr. Filipone said that the boilers at the high school are at the end of their years.  Mr. Howes reported that one is being retubed and one was retubed last year.  He added that this should be the last time they could be retubed.  Mr. Filipone asked how the building committee could support funding for the boilers.  At this time, it would cost $400,000 to replace the boilers.  In another year, it could cost twice that.  Mr. Howes presented specs from 2002.  Mr. Filipone made a copy to review.   The Committee agreed an engineer should be hired to look closely at the boilers.  Mr. Filipone will get three names to Mr. Howes.

The committee discussed the high school barrel roof, saying it is pitted after only ten years.
