Ladder truck, building renovations on Windham capital improvement projects
The Windham Planning Board unanimously adopted the appropriations plan during its Oct. 16 meeting.
In order to qualify as a CIP project, an item generally must be considered beyond the scope of the typical municipal or school district budget, according to CIP Committee Chairman Rob Gustafson.
Fire officials said the town’s current ladder truck was built in 1980 and has outlived its useful life span. A federal Assistance to Firefighters Grant, distributed through the Department of Homeland Security, would hopefully fund 95 percent of the $850,000 purchase.
According to Peter Griffin of the Searles Historic Committee, the building is the only site in town listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
School Board member Jerome Rekart said both schools’ roofs are currently in dire condition and were identified as “poor or worse” during a recent inspection.
