Capital Budget '10/11: schools - renovations (1 of 5)

In reviewing the capital budget for the schools, I suggest you start with the BOEs entire proposal for 2010 / 2011. Then look at the details for code compliance and roofs and wrap it up with this five part series on renovations, starting here with part 1:And my initial reaction to the first three items...

The TM probably already spoke with the Superintendent and concluded that some of this stuff can be delayed. I just want to make sure we include the CHS improvements in the soon-to-be-released Energy RFP... and keep in mind the possibility of scaling up the Energy RFP to cover other town buildings, including Highland, Chapman and Humiston.We should maintain the infrastructure we have, but repaving is an obvious candidate for spending reductions / delays.I'll want the Superintendent to explain the urgency of these improvements. But I'm guessing that air quality improvements will be more difficult to delay than repaving.Your thoughts?
