A Special Town Meeting is being held in Brookfield tonight about setting a referendum date about funding capital items next fiscal year. Brookfield officials are looking at August 7th as a referendum date on the $2.1 million.
The plan includes money for road paving, generators for the high school and Center fire Company, improvements to the Parks and Rec maintenance building and vehicle replacements for various departments. Some of the money will be used for truck replacements, a street sweeper, mower, aerator, police cruisers and other vehicles for the Public Works, Police, Land Use, Health and Parks and Rec departments.
The improvements to the Parks and Rec maintenance building include roof, window and door replacements and a sewer connection. A canopy for the Public Works fueling station, command vehicles for Center and Candlewood Fire companies and renovation of a locker room at BHS would also be paid for. Funding for a new time and attendance system for the school district, window design and engineering costs and ADA compliance improvement at the library and architectural designs for improvements to various schools is also planned.
Tonight's Special Town Meeting is at 7pm at Brookfield Town Hall.
