Nisky eyes $2M bonding proposal for upgrades

Bond would cover new water and sewer garage, land acquisition

— As of the morning of Wednesday, Feb. 22, the agenda for the board’s Feb. 16 special meeting hadn’t been posted online. Landry on Feb. 22 said the meeting was posted on the town’s meeting calendar online and agendas were available at the special meeting.

In the resolution, it’s stated the improvements of “original furnishings, equipment, machinery, and apparatus” are included in the more than $1.46 million maximum estimated cost.

Landry said department heads are looking at the proposed bond and a completed list of items and estimated expenses wouldn’t be finalized until after the public hearing.

“I anticipate that the March committee meetings will finalize a lot of this,” Landry said. “The bond resolution is a different resolution … the public hearing is limited to construction of the garage.”

He added the meeting might include “just a couple of slides to explain what it is and what we are looking at.”

Officials haven’t determined what the current water and sewer garage will be used for after the move.

“Eventually we will be demolishing that building and that is right in the middle of the park, so that would be used for park purposes,” Landry said. “There is a lot of discussion right now of what that could be, from more parking areas to fields to buildings … there are a lot of different types of park purposes.”

The town acquired the WTRY Road property during a land swap with the school district about a year ago. The district traded the town for open space in between Town Hall and the high school.
