Thank you for asking the Board to carefully consider how best to protect the health and safety of our town employees and residents. As you continue the work of using available grant money to improve and preserve the Center, it makes all the sense in the world to consider using the former school building to preserve our health and safety.
It is not just the people living in or near the Center who are affected by the congestion at Sawyer Hall. It is anyone who works there or uses the post office or does business with the town that is affected by it, not to mention their families and any others with whom they come into contact. Under the circumstances it would be, as you said, irresponsible not to consider making use of a building we own, if it provides a safer place to work and do business.
We have to be able to face all the challenges of our situation. It takes courage and leadership to do this and I am grateful to you for exercising both.
