Chairman Paveglio opened the meeting at 7:00pm.
Doug Hall presented the Road Advisory Committee recommendations to the CIP committee. The Committee uses a 20 year life span for paved roads. Chichester has 38.1 miles of Town maintained paved roads. In order to keep the same condition for roads we need to do 1.2 miles of road each year. They estimate $250,000 to rebuild one mile. The RAC recommends a little better than that at about $300,000 per year.
The RAC provided a chart of Town cost vs contracted cost of projects. There was a lengthy discussion about the chart. It was determined that the chart did not list actual town costs rather the costs above what is already in the operating budget. There was also discussion about which number should be included in the CIP since it was stated that the Town crew could not do all the scheduled projects in house.
They are recommending the following for 2013:
.42 miles of Pleasant Street #2
.419 miles of Pleasant Street #4
.160 miles of Kelly Corner #3
.241 miles of Kelly Corner #4
Last week someone reported that the Town trucks had dumped gravel on Mayflower Drive, which is a private road. Jim said the whole thing stemmed from a request on Mayflower Drive for ditching material. He brought in the gravel so the trucks could travel the road to deliver the ditching material. There was a discussion about ditching material. Jim said that from now on he will no longer deliver ditching material to residents. The material will be screened and sold. Jim estimates this would generate about $5,000 in revenue for the Town.
Payroll and accounts payable expenditures were approved.
A motion by Mr. Paveglio and seconded by Mr. Jordan to adjourn the meeting at 9:03. Motion passes.
Approved when signed
