The Brookfield Library Location Ad Hoc Committee met last night.
The Board of Selectmen last month approved $61,000 from the current year's budget to hire the architectural firm Doyle Coffin for pre-referendum services.
Selectman Marty Flynn oppose spending the money saying he would like to see an infrastructure priority list first. He noted that residents recently approved spending money for the streetscape projects and there are more big projects on the horizon that will need funding. He pointed to recently possible underground electricity at the Four Corners, a possible new police station and whether to renovate or knock down Huckleberry Hill School.
First Selectman Steve Dunn says they can't get people to get behind something without a clear plan and an estimate. This expenditure is to plan for a new library, regardless of when the project is actually done.
