Town Meeting FY07 budget includes $225,010 in purchase requests
Article 10 - Capital Equipment
The Long-Term Capital Requirements Committee, with approval of the Board of Selectmen, is recommending $225,010 in capital items to be funded within the no-override budget. They include a routine purchase of fire department protective clothing for $6,000 and a police cruiser for $29,000. This article would also fund replacement of 20% of the computers at the Carlisle Public School, an every year item to replace outmoded systems, for $36,000. Safety railings leading from the parking lot (every year there are injuries) will cost $20,340 and replacement lockers add an additional $7,000.
The DPW will get a new one-ton dump truck for $43,000 and $25,000 to repair the salt shed roof, a portion of which had blown off during a recent windstorm. During the repairs, the roof trusses were found to be rotted and in need of replacement.
The treasurer will get an envelope stuffer for mailing town tax bills and other municipal correspondence.
