Town officials last week approved an approximately $20,000 contract with a Valhalla, N.Y.-based firm to get design and engineering plans for a roof replacement at The Playhouse building on Elm Street. The roof has “a lot of problems,” according to Department of Public Works Superintendent of Buildings Bill Oestmann. “That roof has been leaking,” he told members of the Board of Selectmen at their regular meeting, held July 7 via videoconference. “It’s in bad shape. The cupola up there needs work, too.”
First Selectman Kevin Moynihan and Selectmen Kit Devereaux and Nick Williams voted in favor of the $19,493 contract with Watsky Associates, Inc.
The actual roof replacement has been estimated to cost about $230,000, officials said.
