Update on HVAC and Geothermal Systems
Bill Lovallo reviewed the meeting he had had with Kevin Looney and the contractors, at which the geothermal and HVAC systems were discussed. A list of issues to be resolved has been sent to Kevin Looney and we are waiting for a response on what needs to be done and likely costs.
Update on Irrigation System
Upon a motion by Peg Callanan, seconded by Phyl Solomon the Committee voted unanimously to approve payment of $100 toward a proposal presented to the town from Waverly Landscape Associates for the adjustments to the irrigation system heads. Replacement of broken heads is a maintenance responsibility. In addition, the Committee will contact Groom to have them determine why the system serving the area along the abutting athletic fields is not working. as there was only one issue on the list for the Waverly Bill in conjunction with Bill working with contractor to further investigate possible warranty issues as the Committee is in agreement that these are primarily maintenance issues beyond the relocation of the sprinkler.
Update on Handling Trash
Update on Metal Roof Repairs
The Purchase Order has been set up and a copy has been faxed to Capeway.
Update on Outdoor Furniture
Paul Laffey reported that if the furniture purchase could be made through him, the Committee would save money; but this approach would need to be cleared with the State’s Ethics Commission before we proceed. Nava will contact the Ethics Commission to see if she can get a ruling.
As of June 10, the Committee anticipated that there was nearly $60,000 of their appropriation remaining, taking into account then expected costs. But there remained a sizeable uncertainty about the remaining costs.
The following invoices were presented:
- Briggs in the amount of $65.00. The invoice had been delayed because it had originally gone to John Ciccariello. Upon a motion by Bill Lovallo, seconded by Peg Callanan, the Committee voted unanimously to approve this invoice.
- WSP Flack & Kurtz for a total of $300.00. The invoice was for services through Nov. 19, 2009 for “CX heating of boxes and finalized CX report.” Upon a motion by Bill Lovallo, seconded by Phyl Solomon, the Committee voted unanimously to approve this invoice.
- Wessling in the amount of $1,500. Upon a motion by Bill Lovallo, seconded by Phyl Solomon, the Committee voted unanimously to pay this invoice.
