B. East Windsor Town Hall Annex Storage/Offices
First Selectman Menard discussed the various uses of the space. Park & Rec uses the gymnasium for dog training classes, etc. The VNA office uses their space approximately once per month and the Registrars Office uses their space approximately once per week. The Police Department needs secure storage for their files. The Human Services Department uses two spaces. One room is used for clothing and Christmas program items and is also shared with VNA and the Treasurer’s Office for storage.
A discussion followed regarding the possibility of a public meeting room which would require the relocation of some the Human Services Department’s things to another room. Chairman Nelson will check on getting some shelving units for the Human Services Department.
Mr. Norton discussed the cost of tearing down the building. The estimate came in at $75,000 and would have to have a hazardous material study fee added to it along with a fee for the removal of any hazardous material. This would allow for the addition of a metal structure that would be weather tight for storage of files and various items. Mr. Nelson discussed the total cost to “button-up” the old part of the building. Mr. Nelson will check on the heating issue. Selectman Menard will check with the Historical Society to see if there is any grant funding available for a project of this nature. Selectman Menard will have an update at the next scheduled Building Committee meeting.
