Place: Town of Williamsburg, Anne T. Dunphy School
Absent: Lloyd Warriner
Fred and Mike conducted a walk around tour of the facilities of the Anne T. Dunphy building. It was noted that there were no smoke detectors in the school, that $10,000 will be spent on the boiler maintenance this year, and $10,000 2 years ago for the same. Bathroom had 1 drain not working, some faucets not usable, and inappropriate urinals. There is asbestos tile in all rooms, the ceilings and roof were done in 1986 and the shingles are deteriorating, single pane glass in all windows, mold in some rooms, and window frames in gym are rotting. Reimbursement for building renovations are expected to be in the 60% - 65% range and more will be known by July 1. A special town meeting will be needed to consider this proposal.
In the James school, there is lead paint, a concrete trip hazard in driveway, roof membrane is in good shape, mold in preschool room, smoke detector system is in place, a new plumbing, heating and electrical is in place, heaters are controllable in each room, the oil burners are in good shape. The main issues are the water intrusion around the foundation and the windows.
The Selectboard has sent a letter of interest to the state requesting state funding for renovations.
