China committee considers options for added town office space

by Mary Grow

Members of China’s Municipal Building Committee (MBC) spent their Oct. 28 meeting again considering options for additional space at the town office, primarily for storage of town records.

MBC Secretary Terry DeMerchant’s minutes say Chairman Sheldon Goodine and Codes Officer Jaime Hanson provided measurements on space needed and suggestions for providing it.

Committee members considered issues like whether the new space should be a separate building or an addition to the present building; whether town office staff need work spaces in the records storage area; and whether a third furnace should be part of the plan.

They decided they should have a report to the China select board by the end of November, so their proposal can be considered early in the preliminary discussions of the 2022-23 budget.

The next MBC meeting is scheduled for 6:30 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 18. Goodine and Hanson will continue to refine their proposals and share new drafts with the rest of the committee before the meeting.
