Yarmouth Voters to Decide on Feasibility Studies

KA_Yarmouth_Town Hall_04_120215YARMOUTH – During May’s town meeting, voters in Yarmouth will be asked to fund feasibility studies for five major capital improvement projects.

Proposed studies include designs for a new Public Works facility, studies on emergency dispatch procedures and library buildings, Mattacheese School, and further study of the town’s wastewater management plan.

While originally slated to appear as one article on the town meeting warrant, the studies will likely be separated out in different articles, and Selectmen Chairman Erik Tolley says the funding sources will be clearly laid out.

“They are all proposed to be based under our ordinary capital spending or supplemental capital spending funded by free cash,” Tolley said.

Cost is expected to an issue, as collectively the studies will likely exceed $300,000, the largest of which will be $200,000 for further study of the wastewater plan.

“The ultimate outcome could determine that something’s not feasible and therefore you feel like you wasted the money, but until you do the study you don’t really know the answer to that question,” Tolley said.

Yarmouth’s town meeting will be held Saturday, May 7.
