The first bond request on Tuesday’s ballot is for $1,037,000 for maintenance projects throughout town, including:
- $69,000 for lighting, heating and bathroom renovations at Brookfield Library;
- $120,000 for the air conditioning system in the Brookfield High School auditorium;
- $180,000 to replace a backhoe for road maintenance;
- $188,000 for HVAC, windows and carpeting in Town Hall (last of three-phase project);
- $230,000 for a roof replacement and Commercial Kitchen renovation at the Center Fire Company station house; and
- $250,000 for repairs to the parking lots at the library, town hall and town garage (Phase I of a 2-year, $500,000 program).
The second question being put to voters Tuesday asks them to approve $2,407,000 to finish work on the 2-mile Greenway that began with Phase I in 2010.
Though the resolution requests an appropriation of just over $2.4 million, 80 percent of the cost will be reimbursed through Department of Transportation grants, leaving the total cost to Brookfield residents at $481,400.
The final plans — once approved by voters and the Army Corps of Engineers — extend the paved walking/biking path from behind the police station south to Junction Road and north parallel to Route 202, terminating at 777 Federal Road.
Polls will be open Tuesday, June 24, from 6 a.m. to 8 p.m. at Huckleberry Hill Elementary School (District I) and Brookfield High School (District II).
Check back with Brookfield Patch Tuesday night for the results.
