The Board of Finance has endorsed both bonded capital projects proposed by the Board of Selectmen for fiscal year 2017, and will recommend both for approval at the Annual Town Meeting on May 3. The two projects are the fifth year of the five-year road restoration project for $1,800,000, and replacing Fujitani Field for $650,000. Taken together, that\u2019s $2.45 million in bonded capital. At the Board of Finance\u2019s capital meeting on April 7, board members asked First Selectman Lynne Vanderslice some final questions ahead of the Town Meeting. Finance chair Jeff Rutishauser inquired about the field \u2014 \u201c$650,000, do we have it as a positional order? Because I hear that a lot of people are really interested in this field, and it takes some installation, so do we have a positional order on it, or a fixed price for a period of time?\u201d he said. \u201cWe have a fixed price,\u201d Vanderslice said, \u201cand the idea is that we get going on it. \u201cIf the bonding is approved, then we\u2019re going to be ready to go. They\u2019ve already met with the various vendors. The whole selection process has already occurred, so this price is good for this summer. The idea is, on July 5, you start the installation,\u201d she said. \u201cRemind me,\u201d said John Kalamarides, \u201cwhat the plan is going forward to prefund having to replace this in another 10 years.\u201d \u201cI gave a proposal to the Board of Selectmen but we haven\u2019t talked about it yet,\u201d Vanderslice said. \u201cIt\u2019s basically half of the money comes from the revenue from the rentals of the field, and the other half is going to come through private money, fund raising.\u201d \u201cWould you do the same for the Lilly field in 2019?\u201d Kalamarides also asked. \u201cExactly,\u201d replied Vanderslice. \u201cI really like the idea of a separate fund, and funding half from revenues. It\u2019s a great idea,\u201d said Richard Creeth. Asked about future items on the five-year capital plan, Vanderslice said, \u201cI think we need to take a big-picture look at everything.\u201d When asked specifically to weigh in on talked-about improvements to Wilton\u2019s police station, she said, \u201cWe haven\u2019t decided anything about the police station.\u201d \u201cSomebody came in two years ago and put together what the ideal would be in terms of size of a building and what you would need, and that\u2019s pretty much all that\u2019s been done. \u201cI don\u2019t know what we\u2019re going to do. There\u2019s no decision that we\u2019re building a new police station, versus renovating the current police station. Everything is on the table,\u201d Vanderslice said. She added, \u201cWe want to get ahead of this, because we\u2019ve got a lot of buildings that need work.\u201d \u201c[The police station] needs work, the annex \u2014 there\u2019s a lot of deficiencies in that building; there are places that are overcrowded, like the annex, and then you have excess space up at Comstock, for example,\u201d Vanderslice said. \u201cWe need to look at everything we own and come up with a long-term plan,\u201d she said. After inquiries were over, the Board of Finance resolved by unanimous vote to recommend both bonding authorizations to voters at the Town Meeting. The Annual Town Meeting to discuss the budget will take place on Tuesday, May 3, at 7:30 p.m. at Middlebrook School, with voting following the meeting. Residents may also take part in the adjourned vote on Saturday, May 7, from 9 to 6 at the Clune Center. Both bonding authorizations will be voted on individually by citizens. They will pass or fail on an up-or-down vote.
