Sherman Library Continues Approval Process with Board of Selectmen

Library Project engineer Paul Szymanski made a presentation to the board regarding their proposal to widen a portion of Saw Mill Road to maintain stan-dard width and improve drainage. New construction of catch basins on the southern portion of the project were described, as well as relocating an easement to allow for an existing pipe which presently lies outside of the easement boundary to be centered on the lot line.

Mr. Szymanski noted that the easement will be in the favor of the town, giving the town the right to maintain the road and the grounds near the road. Planning and Zoning is currently re¬viewing the lot line map and other minor revisions. The presentation was a courtesy to keep the board updated. Mrs. O’Connor questioned the maintenance as all the library drains are currently clogged.

Mr. Szymanski felt all the changes being proposed, including the porous asphalt being used, will reduce the use of sand and what is being washed into the drainage system and brook—which will result in easier maintenance and better performance. Mr. Szymanski asked if the board would feel comfortable working with him through the draft language to be used in the updated proposal. The board stated they were comfortable with that and Mr. Szymanski will follow up with Mrs. O’Connor by email.
