The Public Service Facility Expansion would:
Show All Answers
A clean, modern, safe facility that will benefit the Town’s Public Services Department to more efficiently and effectively conduct their day to day services that they provide to the Town.
The current facility is outdated, overcrowded and does not meet current codes. The current facility is no longer efficient and is a hindrance to effective service delivery. Over 85 Town fleet vehicles, including all emergency response vehicles, Public Services vehicles, Parks & Recreation vehicles, Codes and Assessing vehicles, are serviced on site out of two garage bays.
If the proposed Public Services Facility Expansion Project is approved, this will allow for more storage and maintenance bays to more effectively keep track of Town assets. The expansion will eliminate overcrowding and be a safe, modern, facility that meets today's building code standards. The new facility would eliminate the need to borrow space from other departments for training purposes. The facility expansion project would make servicing all town vehicles easier with the proposed larger garage area.
The proposed plan allows for the Dog Park to remain at 36 Sea Road.
The vehicles at the existing Public Services Facility are currently stored outdoors, which exposes them to the elements year-round.
With the proposed wash bay and indoor storage, the fleet will now have a better chance of reaching its replacement date. It will be easier to wash the equipment after each use and they can be kept in a warm building vs. being kept outside in the elements.
A freshly washed and well-cared-for fleet extends the lifespan of the vehicle.
