  • Authorizing the Village Manager to sign the proposal with Peter Gisolfi Associates of Hastings-on-Hudson, NY in the amount of $47,500 for the preparation of plans and construction documents for the replacement of the Municipal Building’s roof and repair of the masonry.   The Board met with Gisolfi’s representative at its November 24th work session.  As part of the planning for the proposed work, Gisolfi will also provide options which the Board may or may not decide to include prior to proceeding with the work.
  • Authorizing the Village Manager to sign the proposal with Peter Gisolfi Associates  in the amount of $29,000 plus reimbursable expenses for a site Feasibility  Study for a new Municipal Building and Public Works facility.   Police Dept. space and administrative offices in the Municipal Building and the Public Works garage are in need of space and repair.  The Board would like to look at the options available to the Village before proceeding with a major renovation of the Municipal Building and replacement of the DPW facility.  A needs assessment study going back to 2008 identifies significant deficiencies in the current facilities as they affect Police and Court operations.  Fixing these would require significant alterations in the existing building.  Before moving ahead with such a renovation, this feasibility study will help the Board understand what options, if any, are available.
  • Authorizing the Village Manager to sign the second change order submitted by Chazen in the amount of $25,345 for additional services including extra design work associated with special thrust block design, re-approval of sewage holding tank, temporary coffer, revisions to design of chlorine contact system, DEC and Army Corps of Engineering permit applications, and bidding and construction services.  Meeting the County Department of Health requirements to increase chlorine contact time is requiring additional work, identified above, to be performed by the Chazen Companies.
