Bill Kelly, 76 Reservoir Cr.

Kathleen Karl, 1 Ranger Ct.

The Council asked Fred Pease, Town Sergeant, to read from the list of people requesting to address the Council. Each person spoke in turn for approximately 3 minutes each.

Adolphe Salaun stated that the Town has had 7 years to build a Highway Barn. It should not cost in excess of one million dollars. The Council needs to make up their minds on where to put the Barn and recommended it be placed at the Transfer Station site.

Donna Saulino hand delivered a petition of additional signatures bringing the total number to 984 residents who want the Highway Barn at the Transfer Station.

Douglas Ouellette, Superintendent of the Waste Water Treatment Facility, stated that there is limited room at the Waste Water Treatment Facility. He also commented that the burden of the facility lies with the residents who are provided sewer services and questioned why the Town would want to place an additional expense of locating the Barn on that site. The best place for the Highway Barn, due to it size, would be the Transfer Station site. He added that he does agree to storing salt and/or other chemicals at the Waste Water Treatment Facility

David Martin stated that the Highway Barn should be centrally located and that the Waste Water Treatment Facility would be a good place for it. The Waste Water Treatment Facility would have the least impact on wildlife and the environment. By having the Barn centrally located it would cut down on expenses such as fuel.

Gary Girard, Planning Commission, stated that the Planning Commission recently hired an engineer to review the site cost of the new Highway Barn facility. The Waste Water Treatment Facility does not need to be, but rather, has to be upgraded. Locating the Highway Barn at Taylor Point wouldn’t be feasible. In regards to wildlife, no matter where the Barn is placed, it will have a negative impact on wildlife.

Art Christman, Fire Marshall, stated that the Town has heard the "NIMBY" comments and has also received the recommendation of both committees. The Town should consider the conditions in which the present Highway employees work under and give them a little pride. The Town needs to pick a site.

Gerry Barrette, former chair of the Highway Barn Committee, stated that a decision should have been made in 1998. The full scope of work consistent with the Highway Barn will not fit at the Waste Water Treatment Facility. If the sites are split, it will only cost the taxpayers more. The Town should put the Barn on (lot) 47.

Rick Anderson stated that the selection process when choosing the site was flawed. The Town never allowed for any future projections or nationwide trends. The Town needs to down scale the facility and build it at the Waste Water Treatment Facility.

Louis Souzedde stated that he has been a resident for 49 years and the Barn should be located at the Transfer Station. The traffic will not expand because people use the site already for the purpose of getting rid of their garbage.

David Lussier stated that the Gannett Fleming report gave the Town factual data to work with. The cost to place the Highway Barn at the Waste Water Treatment Facility will be lower and less of an impact on the environment.

Barry Holland read his letter he had submitted to the Council (Communications item #3). He touched upon the fact that the building is too large for the Town’s needs.

Amy Mower stated that the Town needs to think about the concerns of drinking water and if building on Lot 47 will contaminate the water up at the north end of the island. The Town should not take the risk of placing the Barn on Lot 47 or at the Transfer Station.

Phil Willis stated that the most appropriate place would be the Waste Water Treatment Facility. The facility would have Town water and sewer. It does not make any sense to put the Barn up at the north end. He expressed his concerns regarding water runoff from the Transfer Station after a heavy rain, flowing and draining on to his property.

Joe Logan stated that he does not live near either location but has studied, listened and learned about the issues. The best compromise is the Transfer Station site due to its size and available buffer zone. The Waste Water Treatment Facility is too small and would constrain options for future growth.

David Dolce stated that he was in favor of Lot 47 and has two concerns; (1) the "NIMBY" factor and how it arose when he was on the Council when Group Homes where the issue. People need to get the facts and stop scaring people with scare tactics; and (2) Taylor Point should have better potential uses for the property other than a Highway Barn facility. There are limited areas on the island where people can access the water and Taylor Point is one of the last great access points on the island.

Dennis Webster stated that the primary purpose of the last 4 years was to build a new facility for the Highway Barn and its employees. The site needs to meet the growth requirements that Jamestown will encounter in the future. Councilor President Settipane’s idea to split the facility seems to be a political compromise. Placing the Barn at the Waste Water Treatment Facility is not practical and belongs where it can expanded, at the Transfer Station.

Craig Amerigian stated that he urged the Council to choose the Transfer Station site. The space is large enough and adds an adequate buffer zone. He stated that he was the Council member that halted a decision on where to place a Highway Barn due to environmental concerns he had over the Transfer Station site. The Town has hired experts who have addressed the concerns regarding the area and has bent over backwards to work with the abutters. The Transfer Station site is the most efficient site for a Highway Barn facility.

Bill Kelly stated that delaying a decision on where to place the Barn only hurts the employees working under the terrible conditions at Ft. Wetherill. Continued delay increases the cost of equipment and construction.

Mary Webster stated that if the Town wants to build a small garage it should keep in mind room for future expansion. As for the petitions presented to the Council; 109 residents signed not to use Lot 47; 984 signed to place the Barn at the Transfer Station. Using simple math, that’s a 10 to 1 opinion that the Barn should be located at the Transfer Station site.

Arthur Milot stated that water is not an issue at either site. The main focus should be the quality of life, and placing the Barn at Taylor Point would commercialize the area.

Raymond Iannetta pointed out what he viewed to be several misconceptions. (1) DEM stated that expansion at the Waste Water Treatment Facility would be remote and not a large scale endeavor; (2) the Town Buildings and Facilities Committee selected Lot 47 based upon good, accurate information, a misconception; and (3) all water testing was done during the dry season.

Jane Bentley stated that she has watched Councils make mistakes in the past. Two years ago a Council appointed committee recommended the Transfer Station site. The Town has made mistakes in the past because it didn’t listen to the recommendations it requested.

Kathleen Karl stated that she sees the concerns regarding both properties. She expressed her concern regarding drinking water on Lot 47.

Nick Robertson stated that two Council appointed committees recommended the Transfer Station site for obvious reasons. It’s large enough to expand, least expensive and has less impact on the island. It’s also large enough to put a Fire Station annex in.

Gretchen Cohen stated the expansion of the Waste Water Treatment Facility is inevitable. The Town does not have a crystal ball to see the future.

Sterling Graham, Jr. stated that the Highway trucks pass by his neighborhood all the time and cause very little impact on the area. With regards to issue of water run off, it can be contained. The Transfer Station site has the most room and this just seems like another case of "NIMBY".

The Council recessed at 8:05 PM and reconvened at 8:20 Pm.

UNFINISHED BUSINESS (cont.)

1) Highway Barn

    1. Site location

b) Size

A motion was made by Councilor Long and seconded by Councilor Littman to accept Communication items 1 – 8 regarding the Highway Garage. So unanimously voted.

Councilor President Settipane differentiated between Lot 47 and the existing Transfer Station parcels, those being Plat 2 Lots 48, 49, 50 and 51.

The Council discussed the matter. The following Council members gave their opinion as to where the Barn should be located:

Councilor Long suggested that the entire Barn be located at the Transfer Station, as recommended by two committees and the Director of Public Works .

Councilor Littman suggested that the facility be split up between the Waste Water Treatment Facility and Transfer Station

Councilor Swain suggested that the facility be centrally located by expanding the Waste Water Treatment Facility.

Councilor Willis suggested that the Waste Water Treatment Facility is already cited for future expansion per the Comprehensive Community Plan.

Councilor President Settipane suggested both locations be utilized at the Waste Water Treatment Facility and Transfer Station.

The Council discussed location, environmental impact to both sites, building size and traffic increases.

The Council asked what Steve Goslee, Director of Public Works, would recommend. Mr. Goslee stated that the most efficient way to run his department is out of one location, preferably up at the north end. He stated that he understands the north end concerns and that he lives in that area. He asked that the Council at least place the office with the bays and agreed that the salt should be stored at the Waste Water Treatment Facility.

Bob Bryer, Fire Chief, asked the Council what the Highway employees are supposed to do when they are called into work due to a snowstorm and find that the trucks located at the north end do not work and the mechanics bay located at the Waste Water Treatment Facility. Councilor President Settipane answered that both facilities will have tool bags.

A motion was made by Councilor President Settipane and seconded by Councilor Long to close the discussion on the Highway Barn site. So unanimously voted.

A motion was made by Councilor President Settipane and seconded by Councilor Long to approve the location and size of a new Department of Public Works facility at the Transfer Station/Closed Landfill and the Waste Water Treatment Facility, on such terms and conditions as follows:
