Glastonbury Council Considering $4.25 Million Capital Improvement Program

Glastonbury’s proposed capital improvement budget includes street improvements, a school boiler, and new town building roofs.

 

The town council approved sending a proposed $4.25 million capital improvement program for budget review, a plan that includes several high-cost items like new school boilers, roof replacements and road improvements.

The highest cost items in the proposed spending plan include $750,000 for the town’s annual road maintenance program and $560,000 for a new boiler at Hebron Avenue School. The boilers at both Buttonball Lane and Hopewell Schools were replaced in the last two years.

The program also calls for $250,000 to replace the roofs at the Historical Society of Glastonbury’s Hubbard Green building and the town’s vehicle maintenance truck shed.

It also calls for $250,000 for town center road improvements, including a planned dedicated right-turn lane at the corner of Welles St. and Main St., and a similar westbound lane at Hebron Ave. and New London Turnpike.

The proposed plan also calls for $250,000 for new sidewalk construction throughout the town.

The council approved sending the plan to the board of finance for review; the plan will then return to the council for final approval.
