Norway board approves $6900 proposal for Municipal Building renovations
NORWAY â" The Board of Selectmen voted unanimously Thursday night to accept a $6,900 proposal for architectural services for the Municipal Building at 19 Danforth St.
Kennebunk River Architects submitted a $8,625 proposal, Norway architect Richard McSherry submitted at $6,900 proposal and Joy & Hamilton of Auburn submitted a $6,500 proposal.
Town Manager Dennis Lajoie said $20,000 in a reserve account that was approved at a previous town meeting for renovations to the Police Department building space, and that the floor plans would be paid for out of that account.
He explained to the board that the proposal would pay for schematic designs for a large section of the municipal building, including the space housing the Norway Police Department.
âThe idea would be to take the space where the current community room is and make that into the police station ,â Lajoie said. âWe would also enlarge other parts of the municipal building.â
Selectman Russell Newcomb said that he liked the idea of keeping the work local and said that the difference between McSherryâs proposal and Joy & Hamilton was âminimal.âAdvertisement
Selectman Mike Twitchell agreed, adding that he thought McSherry was âa sharp guyâ and recommended the board approve his proposal.
The board also voted unanimously to re-approve an alcohol license for Cafe Nomad.
