Community Center control systems purchased by board

Control systems for the mechanical components at the West Seneca Community Center and Library will be purchased off state bid for work not in the Energy Performance Contract portion of the building, as discussed during Monday’s Town Board work session.

Town Engineer Steven Tanner said the bid was done this way to ensure the control systems match the software and controls for the entire building and that they are similar to those the town is familiar with already.

“We didn’t know who the mechanical contractor would be, so we had wrote into the bid documents that the controls for the building would be bought off of state bid after the fact,” he said.

According to the bid document, the contract is with U and S Services in the amount of $110,695.08 for the control systems hookup and programming.

“The numbers in there are off of state bid, which is within a few thousand dollars of what we had estimated it would be for those controls,” Tanner said.

In other matters, Tanner said that as of Monday night, most of the bricks had been removed from the exterior of the old library building. Renovation of the building will continue this summer.

“One thing that they ran into is under a small portion of carpet there’s a small amount of asbestos tile that’ll have to get abated,” the engineer said.

Additionally, the portion of road closest to the library building off Legion Drive will be temporarily closed. Cars will be able to enter the parking lot from Legion, but cannot exit the lot at that point. Cars can enter and exit off Main Street.

As of July 5, the West Seneca Public Library was relocated to a modular classroom across from the town pool in Veteran’s Park.

Aside from the unplanned abatement, Tanner said the project is moving along as expected.

“They’re ahead of schedule on some things, they’re behind schedule on a couple other things. Overall, the project’s going to be done when it’s supposed to,” he said.
