“Before going ahead and doing all this legwork, they’re the starting point,” he said.
He suggested the town consider instead investing about $182,000 in the existing Highway Garage, which would last many more years and be a lot cheaper than $2.6 million.
“That $182,000 would do a lot of good in that garage,” Besio said. “We’ve got the money and in-house (employees) to do the work.
“We don’t need major renovation, just money to keep it going,” he said.
The School Board will meet 9 a.m. today with representatives of both town and village at Franklin Academy High School.
The session is open to the public.
