Town Manager Mark Haddad updated the Select Board on the status of current building projects in town. Since last week’s Board meeting, where they adopted the Governor’s regulations on building construction, the state has issued further restrictions. Town Manager Mark Haddad said that the new regulations were for the Board’s review and are posted online. He added that they have alerted and updated various construction jobs, pointing out that the original protocols put in place have not changed.
He added that if the Board of Health votes to adopt the new regulations and it will be left up to the cities and towns to enforce them.
Haddad advised that Indian Hill Music has halted all construction activities until the crisis is over and the original 80 workers that were onsite are down to six to cover security. “I thank Indian Hill for doing this,” Haddad said.
He pointed out that Groton School was in the process of renovating the school cafeteria, but that under the Governor’s guidelines, this was not deemed to be an essential service. He added that Groton School is now appealing this to the state to be considered essential.
Selectman josh Degen suggested that any work on residential projects could limit work to what trade was in the property. “One trade in a building at a time,” he suggested.
In regard to the work at Dollar Tree Store at the Four Corners, Haddad advised that the state has authorized them to finish the project.
