Update on Metal Roof
Bill Lovallo spoke to an individual, Steven Wessling who will come and review the current conditions of the roof, determine the cause and issue recommendations. The fee to complete this third-party review should not be more than $1,000. Upon a motion by Neil Hegarty, seconded by Susan Burgess-Cox, the Committee voted unanimously to pay not more than $1,500 to have this third-party review completed.
Authorize additional wiring work by Driscoll per their bid of Dec. 11, 2009:
Driscoll Electric proposed a number of items that the Committee Chair did not believe were necessary for the Committee to consider and approve at this time. Some items are still being reviewed and considered for future work, such as work related to the elevator, and others were deemed unnecessary such as installing wiring for a projector receptacle in the conference room. The following items were proposed to be approved by the Committee with a total cost of $2,230:
- installing a wall switch to control the hallway lighting which is currently on 24/7;
- relocating telephone wiring to allow for wall mounted telephones; and
- cabling for wireless access points
Upon a motion by Bill Lovallo, seconded by Paul Laffey, the Committee voted unanimously to approve payment of these items.
Modify Parking Lot Lights per review performed by Shepherd Engineering
Penny Schafer reported that an estimate was received from Driscoll Electric in the amount of $5,400 to modifying the parking lot lights. This estimate included items that were beyond what the photometric study said were necessary. Therefore, it was determined that the Committee will wait until they get a correct estimate with the necessary lighting alone.
Update on moving of trees
Paul Laffey reported that he met with Andy Rojas this morning, the tree will survive being moved and the contractor performing the work should complete this within the next week.
Walter Guertin reported that there were no major changes to the budget. An invoice from Morrisey, Hawkins and Lynch was presented in the amount of $975. Upon a motion, Bill Lovallo, seconded by Paul Laffey, the Committee voted unanimously to approve this invoice.
