Selectmen’s Report July 20, 2012

by on July 21, 2012 in Selectmen

Under the category of progress made, we have appointed Susan Hansel as a member of our Select Board and have awarded the contract for the security renovations of our Town Offices to Keene Commercial Interiors.

Susan has taken Warren Hammock’s seat on the Board after Warren’s resignation. Susan’s honesty, enthusiasm and love for our Town has made her a respected member of our community. She has served on the Nelson Planning Board, The Nelson Municipal Records Committee, the Friends of the Olivia Rodham Memorial Library, and the Nelson Grant Writing Group. Her knowledge and experience will serve her well as a member of the Nelson Select Board.

We opened the bids and awarded the contract for our Town Office security remodeling project on 7/12/12. We awarded the contract for this work to Keene Commercial Interiors. A spreadsheet showing the bids of the three firms that bid on our project is available [click to download]. David Drasba, our architect, has expressed his confidence in the capabilities of Keene Commercial Interiors and the company appears to be very willing to cooperate with us and the office staff to make sure we can do the necessary work with the least possible disruption. We will be closing the Town Offices for the week of August 12. During that week we expect that a majority of the rough-in work will be completed. We expect all of the work to be completed by mid September. If needs be, we can again close the Town Offices for a short period in September. We’re confident that the work will be completed by the State imposed deadline of September 30.

Under the category of not there yet, we still haven’t come to terms with our Farmers’ Market Committee relative to the insurances that they must have in order to conduct their market on Town property. I hope that we are making progress, but we still need to have our Town liability insurance carrier review and comment on the latest proposal from the Farmers’ Market Committee.

As always, your comments and suggestions will be appreciated.
