  1. Capital Construction Application – Discussion
Mr. Anastasio said within the last two weeks, the State of Maine opened up another round of revolving renovation funds and the application had to be filed by an architect or engineer by September 30. John Pucciarelli was asked to work with PDT Architect to put together an application that could be submitted on the 30th for more work at Hussey if we’re approved for revolving renovation funds.  Mr. Pucciarelli had Oakes and Parkhurst look at the windows at Hussey and came up with an estimate of $558,781 that was submitted on Friday.  We are not committed to it.  It’s just an application.  

Mr. Anastasio said an announcement has not yet been made by the state of when the Capital Construction Application will be due. However, they hope to release the application process by the end of this month and the application then would be due by June or July of next year.  Mr. Pucciarelli recommended that we stay with PDT Architects since they did the last application.  It would involve updating of the original application and doing another population projection.  It would be no more than $5,000 to secure PDT to have them work with us to submit the application.  

Motion by Edward Hastings to send to the board for approval in November to expend not more than $10,000 for the purposes of securing PDT Architects' services to complete the Capital Construction Application and to secure an enrollment projection.  Second by April Cusick.  So moved 3-0.

The meeting adjourned at 7:07 p.m.
