Not the right reasons
Waterbury’s Municipal Building Committee needs to remember that proceeds from the selloff of any part of the Stanley/Wasson site must go back to the state coffers. Also, the location in a flood plain, cost of purchase, and co-location of all four services were major reasons the prior bond vote failed. Third, we were told the buildings “were not usable and must be taken down”; now the private partners want to help us achieve it all. Lastly, the idea that the town might waste the $1 million grant on leasing space from private landlords is just pain dumb.
We would do better to use what the town has and build what we need for town offices; let the library use what they have and can raise to do the same. Though I don’t have a say in village operations, I suggest they think about placement of their police department and their insurance money.
Another thought: The effect of the flooding if there had been no cellars for the water to go into and if foundations six feet high had displaced the waters even more.
