Full Question: With the future school and police station debt overrides, we appreciate all the efforts to look at working more efficiently with funding. If this additional $770,000 of funding for the DPW Westview facility is approved, will the DPW have enough storage between its main facility on Bedford Street and $4 million facility at Westview to accommodate its operational needs? Town Meeting has heard that the DPW must have storage at the Center track bathrooms area as well? Can the Facilities Team or DPW provide any assurances that they have minimal need of any additional storage or will be looking to minimize their storage needs so as to reduce future requests for funding storage needs?
Answer: DPW will be all set for storage. The Cemetery building will house the equipment and materials needed for cemetery maintenance. The storage requested at the Center Restroom building is for materials and equipment that are already stored there in the trailers and existing building, so it is just replacing and not adding to the storage. We do not anticipate any further storage needs.
