Need Some Info Here.. said...

Need Number 5.. Public safety parking lot replacment..
That is in good shape now...are they going to ruin it when they put the Public Safety building up on cribbing to replace its foundation?

OverBudget ? said...

Thanks for the chart...hope supporting $ $ estimates follow. This looks like a real rough total for the 13 items may be $ 7.4 million. ( swag ). How does this fit with the typical annual limit of approx. $ 1 1/3 million?

Done Right ? said...

The wisdom last fall on our Public Safety building Sinking Slab Syndrome was " keep an eye on it...Did it sink out of sight?
For. Taxpayers who were not here for the fun, when excavating the foundation, they found nothing but round sand, poor support for footings...dug deeper and deeper, still round sand, but trucked in some better fill and decided to go ahead with the building. It has been settling for years, with the slab sinking away from the walls in some areas. We must have saved a bundle by not having a sub-surface civil engineer to do test borings.

Only When It Rains... said...

There was talk of a new roof for fire Station # 2. Did that get done, or are we going to spring it as an emergency ?
Was $ 75 grand or so...

It's interesting that Rec. Dept. items are #11, 12, and 13 on the chart. It would be wonderful if the Rec. Dir. and T.A. would look seriously at this chart and dispense with the constant pleas for more spending on rec. items.

July 10th Gym meeting could be interesting!



Estimated cost to Rehab the Baseball field at Playground Drive, half a million dollars, lights another $100,000.....ridiculous.

Slow Going said...

Our new elected member of the BOS is the boards representave to the Rec Dept. He is slowly digging in to evaluate fields and facilities, versus need. For the first time ever, we may be told how many participants each program has. Two other selectmen are very sports oriented, but should welcome financial facts on Rec costs. Number one goal has to be a concerted effort to neutralize the actions of our town administrator. Bring him back to being the BOS " go-fer " NOT the cheerleader for city playgrounds, Baseball stadiums , and local studies involving the University of New Hampshire.
