Next steps to consider

Next Steps to Consider

  • Complete Phase 2 – Pollution Testing

    • Do additional testing in positive result area

    • Develop a Remediation Action Plan

    • Establish final pollution remediation costs

    • Establish impact on what can / cannot be done with the current site

  • Site Decision:

    • Eliminate all unsuitable sites

    • If there is an alternative site, establish scope and cost of a new facility

  • Compare costs of existing site upgrade + Salt Shed and new facility

  • Decide on site for Highway Facility

  • Establish several building scenarios and cost impact on budget and taxes

    • If the life of a Pole Barn Salt Shed costs less that the likelihood of two fabric sheds for the same period, perhaps it is better for the town to invest in the Pole Barn now – the immediate least cost solution is not always the best one in the long run.

    • If using current site, does it make sense to put up the extra bay on the existing building now?
