The Cheshire Town Council met last night and discussed a variety of different topics, including work at the pool and the Town Manager’s goals and objectives.
The Council approved the pool dehumidification project with a unanimous vote and the project should be sent to bid within the next few weeks. In order to comply with new building codes, the indoor humidity needs to be reduced by 20 percent and, to achieve 60 percent humidity on the pool deck while the bubble is up, special equipment must be installed. The Public Building Commission has developed a solution that mixes the cool outdoor winter air with the humid indoor air to achieve the required levels.
Last night, the Town Council also approved Town Manager Michael Milone’s goals and objectives for the current fiscal year. Annually, Milone and the Council discuss what should be worked on. Some of the items appear each year, such as pre-plan for the upcoming budget process and continue professional development training. This year, there are some new goals and objectives, such as implementing the expanded single stream recycling program and work on debt mitigation strategies. The Town Council unanimously approved the goals and objectives without much comment on Sept. 24.
Additionally, the Council discussed the expanded recycling program in some detail and has a rough idea of who will be getting what size dark-green container. Most residents will be receiving the 96-gallon container, but more than 2,000 people will be receiving the 64-gallon container. Residents in one or two bedroom homes, those over 65 years old, and those in condominiums will be receiving the smaller size. The Town is also ordering extras of each size to help accommodate those who wish to change containers after a two month trial period.
