3. Town Manager’s Miscellaneous
The Board reviewed correspondence from Representative Kimberly N. Ferguson regarding the work of the Special Joint Committee on Redistricting. The Joint Committee is reviewing the current Congressional District lines in response to the 2010 census date. The decrease in population within the State is requiring the reduction of the current district from 10 to 9. Representative Ferguson requests the Selectmen provide input to the Committee concerning the Town of Holden’s preference. The Board reviewed a letter drafted by Town Manager Galkowski to request the Committee maintain the Town in the 3rd Congressional District, which is aligned closely with the City of Worcester and other Central Massachusetts communities.
Motion by Sel. O’Brien, seconded by Sel. Renzoni, it was UNANIMOUSLY VOTED TO SEND THE LETTER AS PREPARED BY THE TOWN MANAGER TO REQUEST THAT THE TOWN OF HOLDEN MAINTAIN ITS PLACE IN THE 3RD CONGRESSIONAL DISTRICT.
Town Manager Galkowski reported that in 2009, the Town, working with NSTAR which was interested in extending the gas line to the Fox Hill area, restored the existing and extended the sidewalk on Salisbury Street to the Seasons Development. NSTAR gave the Town $90,000 to build the sidewalk. The Town used Chapter 90 money for the sidewalk extension and placed the $90,000 in the Sidewalk Fund. In order to spend this money on other sidewalk replacement projects, the Board must approve the expenditure of this gift. The Manager explained that the money would be used on Salisbury Street to Main Street to the restored section and on other sidewalk projects as funding permits including Doyle Road and Industrial Drive. The Manager asked that the Board designate any remaining funds for
other sidewalk replacement in Town.
A motion by Sel. Renzoni was seconded by Sel. O’Brien for discussion purposes that pursuant to MGL Chapter 44, section 53a, the Board of Selectmen authorize the expenditure of $90,000 from the sidewalk fund account for the construction or reconstruction of sidewalks in the Town of Holden.
Sel. O’Brien said that sidewalks are necessary on Union Street for safety reasons. He felt that the Town should prioritize the need for the construction of new sidewalks in town and earmark these priorities first before using this money to maintain current sidewalks. He said that the Transportation and Circulation Committee has a list of these priorities. The Manager said she was aware of the need for a sidewalk on Union Street to help those walking to the Davis Hill School. Additionally, the Town has a commitment to fix the sidewalk in the Industrial Park. Sel. Jumonville said he would like to review the sidewalk policy in town and said he supported Sel. O’Brien’s request to create sidewalks to service schools and safety concerns first.
Motion by Sel. Renzoni, seconded by Sel. O’Brien, it was UNANIMOUSLY VOTED THAT PURSUANT TO MGL CHAPTER 44, SECTION 53A, THAT THE BOARD OF SELECTMEN AUTHORIZE THE EXPENDITURE OF $90,000 FROM THE SIDEWALK FUND ACCOUNT FOR THE CONSTRUCTION OR RECONSTRUCTION OF SIDEWALKS IN THE TOWN OF HOLDEN.
The Town Manager updated the Board on the plans to replace the rail road bridge over Main Street by Adams Road. The Providence and Worcester Railroad informed the Town that work is anticipated to begin on Friday, August 19th and finish on Monday, August 22nd. The road will be closed to all through traffic during that period. Traffic will be rerouted/detoured along Newell Road. Traffic will be allowed to access the DPW on Saturday, August 20th for composting purposes.
Town Manager’s Miscellaneous was interrupted at 6:54PM to proceed with the Water/Sewer Rate discussion.
Water/Sewer Rate Discussion
Town Manager Galkowski gave an overview of the history of the water/sewer budget and the decision making process that led to a restructuring of the Town’s water/sewer rates. The new rate structure went into effect July 1, 2011. The Manager addressed two issues rate issues that have arisen from the implementation of the new rate structure. The first issue relates to seven homes on Greystone Drive. Due to fire suppression and water pressure issues these residents all have 2” meter service and are being charged the 2” meter fixed fee. Changes in the town’s water system may ultimately allow for a change in the meter size servicing these residents. Camp, Dresser McKee will conduct a study over the next several months to make a final determination. The second issue involves approximately two hundred
eighty-five residential customers with 1” meters and three residential customers with 1½-inch meters. These customers have also experienced billings higher than those with 5/8” meters.
Ms. Galkowski commended staff at Light Department for handling customer service calls that were created from the recent rate restructure process.
Sel. Renzoni said the Administration and the Board had made the rate restructure changes that would to fair to residential customers across the Board through a fixed cost structure. He said it was never his intention to have residents on Greystone Drive with the 2” meters be charged eight times what customers with a 5/8” meter are being charged. He said it was his intention that all dwellings should be treated and charged as if they have a 5/8” meter.
Sel. O’Brien concurred with Sel. Renzoni’s comments stating that the Board appreciated these unique situations and intended to fix the problem.
Chairman Lavigne interrupted discussion at 7:17PM to proceed with Citizens’ Address.
Mr. Ed Meyer, Fort Sumter Drive questioned the meter vs. the billing count when CDM conducted their study. HE suggested that the town was possibly losing money due to a miscount. The Manager said that the Town did not lose any billings. The study was conducted on the number of meters and not on billings. Sel. Renzoni asked that no dialogue be conducted during Citizens’ Address.
Mr. Mark Biller, 7 Oakwood Street, said he manages condominium complexes in Holden. He thanked the Board for their willingness to correct the mistake and move forward.
Ms. Sheila Morrow, Main Street said she never received any notification that the rates would be restructured. She said she lives on a fixed income and her bills increased from $12/month to a $36/month rate increase.
Mrs. Maria Sudar, 72 Briarfield Drive, lives alone on a fixed income and questioned how she could pay her bills.
Ms. Beverly DeCicco, residing in the Briarcove condominum complex expressed concerns about the new rates. She said she felt that the Town went about the rate restructure process unfairly and it has adversely affected residents who live on a fixed income.
Mr. Michael Thinky, 48 Greystone Drive inquired what was going to happen to those residents who paid their higher bill? Would they receive their money back?
Mr. Bill Lasher, 40 Greystone Drive presented a petition to the Board to remedy an unjust and unreasonable water rate system. He asked the town to modify its system to adjust this unfair disparity. He asked that his petition be attached to the minutes.
Mr. Mark Ferguson, 244 Bailey Road spoke against unjust water rates. Residents should be charged for what they use and not how the water is delivered to the house. He said the unfair problem is what the City of Worcester charges the Town of Holden for sewer transportation to the Upper Blackstone. The City of Worcester is taking advantage of a situation. He said the Town needs to address the issue to finding more water in Town and return to the DEP and convince them to let the Town use the water at the Poor Farm Brook wellfield.
Mr. Otto Lies, 564 Salisbury Street said he agreed with everything that has been said. He commented that mistakes had been made and questioned if the Water/Sewer Advisory Board had been involved in all of the decision making. He said that changes should be made by that board.
4. Water/Sewer Rate Discussion (reopened)
Sel. Lipka said the water/sewer rates in place prior to July 1, 2011 were not effective. However, the system needed to be changed to cover its fixed costs. The decision was used assuming that all homes had a 5/8” meter. Meters larger than 5/8” were installed to accommodate certain pressure requirements or by choice. He said he understood the frustration by a small amount of residents but the final rate restructure was not made in a flippant manner. Several open meetings were held over several months.
Sel. Jumonville said he voted against the restructure because he knew it would affect fixed income and elderly users who were all low consumption users.
Chairman Lavigne said the old rate system did not cover the fixed costs. He said he reviewed his notes and these larger meters were never discussed. A mistake was made and it will be corrected. He said it was never the intent of the Board to target low income/fixed income users.
Sel. Renzoni proposed making a motion to treat all residents like they have a 5/8” meter or equivalent, correct the July and August billings through a credit or refund to those who were overcharged, and proposed two new connection fee increases. He said the Water/Sewer Advisory Board members volunteer their time and work hard, but their hands were really tied during the process.
Sel. O’Brien encouraged the public to have patience with the people making these decisions. They are complicated, take time, and are not rushed. All meetings were held in public and the Administration and Board strive toward transparency. It is a new rate structure with issues. The management of this account is currently without a DPW Director and a Water/Sewer Superintendent. The sewer transport rate involved 5 towns, and Rutland and Holden never signed the contract. However, because the other three towns did and it became a binding contract. He agreed that the town should revisit pursuit of other water resources in town. However, this is a costly endeavor and must be investigated thoroughly. Sewer connection fees should increase. There are no easy solutions to this problems and
one of the biggest problems are condominiums, which require fire suppression systems and bigger water meters to bring in a large volume of water.
A motion by Sel. Jumonville was seconded by Sel. Lavigne for purposes of discussion to vote to revert back to the previous rate structure and credit those who were adversely affected until the town can review the rate structure.
Sel. Renzoni said that going back to the old way of doing business was a mistake. It was unpredictable and the least effective method of balancing the W/S account. Additionally, this method failed 10 years in a row. This type of backward move would show a lack of leadership and the Board needs to work to fix it. The new rate structure has flaws but he is dedicated to fixing them. One and a half years of open meeting discussion were held with multiple board and commissions and town departments providing information and opinions to make the final decision that was the best for the entire town.
Sel. O’Brien said he would not support the motion because it would be fiscally irresponsible to return to the old rate structure. The general fund cannot support the water/sewer budget for another year.
Chairman Lavigne said he would not support the motion because the minimum expenses need to be covered and the old system was broken. It may take several months but it will be made fair and equitable.
Motion by Sel. Jumonville, seconded by Sel. Lavigne, it was VOTED 1-4 WITH 4 OPPOSED TO REVERT BACK TO THE PREVIOUS RATE STRUCTURE AND CREDIT THOSE WHO WERE ADVERSELY AFFECTED UNTIL THE TOWN CAN REVIEW THE RATE STRUCTURE. (OPPOSED: LAVIGNE, RENZONI, O’BRIEN, LIPKA.) The motion failed.
A motion by Sel. Renzoni was seconded by Sel. O’Brien for discussion that effective September 1, 2011 the water sewer equivalence meter rates are revised so that all residential water and sewer meters which are issued to individual units will be charged to the base rate for 5/8” meters.
Sel. Lipka made an amendment that residents with 1” and 1 ½” meters must have their meters inspected to make sure that they are a requirement by code and if they are required then the matter be brought before the Town Manager. The amendment failed for lack of a second.
Sel. O’Brien said that the Town Manager did some research and the town discovered there are more billings than originally thought. Reverting residential customers with larger meters to a 5/8” charge will not create a deficit in the water/sewer account.
The Manager explained that multi complex units with one 1 inch meter will be billed one $57 charge split by how ever many units are in that complex. In the instance of the Seasons whose units each have individual 1” water meters, they will be charged the 5/8” meter fixed rate of $23/month.
The Manager said that CDM did not understand the town. Sel. Renzoni said that if the money that the Town pays CDM to understand the town and if CDM doesn’t understand the Town then we need to find a new consulting firm that better understands the town.
Sel. Jumonville said he would not support the motion because it would not help the low consumption user.
Sel. O’Brien asked for the input of Finance Committee Chairman Berg and Chairman of the Water/Sewer Advisory Board Chairman Carlson for their input.
Sel. Renzoni said the Chairman of these Boards had contributed information during the open water/sewer meeting discussions. However, he agreed to withdraw his motion to allow for additional comment.
The motion makers agreed to withdraw their motion at 8:25PM.
The Chairman reopened Citizens’ Address at 8:26PM.
5. Citizens’ Address (reopened)
Mr. Mark Biller, 7 Oakwood Street asked for clarification of the meter billing under Sel. Renzoni’s motion.
Mr. Richard Conrad, 5 Explorers Way, said he was confused at what was trying to be accomplished. It should be fair for everyone not matter how water is delivered to the house.
Mr. Alan Berg, 205 Highland Street, said he was speaking as a member of the finance committee. The motion made on the floor would help with some condo complexes. However, small users would still continue to pay more. There are tremendous fixed costs associated with the delivery of water and urged the Town to use the rate structure in place.
Mr. Art Bodwell, representing The Season’s, said 16 units have 1” meters and are paying $660 more for water than their neighbors without receiving a drop of water under the new rate plan. He urged the Board to approve the proposed motion.
Mr. Ira Gregman, Fireside Lane, discussed one service coming into a multi unit building. Not an issue to fairness but common area interest.
Dr. Larry Stein, Twinbrooke Drive, felt that dividing the fixed costs equally among users is not fair and equitable and that users should be charged for consumption cost should be borne by the people using the product.
Citizens’ Address was closed 8:35PM.
4. Water/Sewer Rate Discussion (reopened)
The motion by Sel. Renzoni and seconded by Sel. O’Brien that effective September 1, 2011 the water sewer meter equivalence rates are revised so that all residential water and sewer meters which are issued to individual units will be charged to the base rate for 5/8” meters was presented for discussion.
Sel. Renzoni spoke to the motion. He said he appreciated all the comments. However, the Town would never achieve a perfect system and pay as you go did not work for the town. Customer usage cannot be predicted and having general government bail out the budget every year doesn’t work. While the motion will not fix everything it will hopefully make it equitable for the majority of residents.
Motion by Sel. Renzoni, seconded by Sel. O’Brien, it was UNANIMOUSLY VOTED THAT EFFECTIVE SEPTEMBER 1, 2011, THE WATER SEWER METER EQUIVALENCE RATES WOULD BE REVISED SO THAT ALL RESIDENTIAL WATER AND SEWER METERS WHICH ARE ISSUED TO INDIVIDUAL UNITS, WILL BE CHARGED TO THE BASE RATE FOR 5/8” METERS.
Motion by Sel. Renzoni, seconded by Sel. O’Brien, it was UNANIMOUSLY VOTED TO CHARGE THE MANAGER TO DEVELOP A SYSTEM TO REFUND ANY FIXED COSTS TO INDIVIDUAL RESIDENTS THAT WERE CHARGED IN EXCESS OF THE FIXED 5/8” RATE AND ISSUE SOME FORM OF CREDIT BY NOVEMBER 1, 2011.
Sel. O’Brien suggested residents with financial hardship should apply to the Welcome Aldrich Fund
The Manager said the refund would come in the form of a credit in the near future. She said the Light Department’s priority was to correct billing during the month of September
Sel. Renzoni encouraged residents to contact him directly with any concerns.
The Town Manager recommended that residents sign up for News and Announcements on www.townofholden.net
The meeting recessed at 8:38PM.
Chairman Lavigne, and Sel. O’Brien and Lipka returned to the meeting at 8:45PM.
Cranbrook Street Light Installation
The Manager informed the Board that the Town received a petition from the residents of Cranbrook Drive for the installation of streetlights from house #70 to house #253. When the development was built by the contractor, the underground utilities and boxes for the streetlights were installed. However, at the request of the residents, no light poles or streetlights were installed at the time. The Manager stated that 26 of the homeowners live on that portion of the street, and 77% of them signed the installation petition. The Town requires that 50% of homeowners approve of the project in order to proceed. After reviewing the request, Light Department Manager Jim Robinson indicates that there are sufficient funds to complete the project.
Motion by Sel. O’Brien, seconded by Sel. Lipka, it was VOTED 3-0 TO APPROVE THE INSTALLATION OF STREET LIGHTS ON CRANBROOK DRIVE FROM HOUSE #70 TO HOUSE #253 AS RECOMMENDED BY THE TOWN MANAGER AND THE LIGHT DEPARTMENT MANAGER.
3. Town Manager’s Miscellaneous (reopened)
Town Manager Galkowski reported that thanks to local legislators and in particular Representative Ferguson, the town should receive an additional $116,925 in Unrestricted General Government Aid. Unless the Town holds a Special Town meeting to appropriate the money, it will be excess revenue for FY2012 and will contribute to the free cash balance next year. Given that the five-year projection shows a deficit in future years, this money will assist in balancing future budgets. Ms. Galkowski said that the Town is very thankful for the efforts of Representative Ferguson in making the Town’s FY2012 local aid level funded from 2011. Sel. O’Brien inquired if the money could be placed in the snowplowing budget.
The Board reviewed a draft copy of an Open Meeting Law – Proposed Regulations for Remote Participation provision from the Attorney General’s office. The provision would develop regulations for remote participation at meetings of public bodies under certain circumstances and with strict requirements. The Board of Selectmen would vote to allow remote participation in accordance with the established regulations for any town board, committee, or commission when if it were determined appropriate for Holden committee meetings. The Board did not have any comments to send to the Attorney General. They agreed to hold discussion on how to implement the regulation when it is passed.
Sel. Jumonville and Sel. Renzoni returned to the meeting at 8:56PM.
The Manager reported that on Sunday, September 11, 2011 a commemorative ceremony will be held in the City of Worcester at Institute Park for the ten-year anniversary of the tragic events on September 11, 2001. The Holden Board of Selectmen has received an invitation to participate in the event. The Manager said that she would attend along with members of the Holden Police Department who will also send a Police Honor Guard. The Holden Fire Department has also been invited to the event and are in the process of considering their participating in the ceremony.
The Manager informed the Board that the renovations to the Bubar Field have been completed. New sod was installed on August 5th by Diamond Athletic Turf after stripping the infield and surrounding area outside of the baselines, removing the pitcher’s mound, laser grading the entire area and then rebuilding the mound. Sod was also installed at the first base coaching box area and the areas in front of the dugouts. Many of the irrigation heads were also replaced. The field will be ready for play when baseball starts in September. The total cost of the project was $15,500. Holden Baseball donated $5,000 toward the project with the remainder appropriated in the Recreation Enterprise fund. A letter of thanks will be sent to Holden Baseball for their
contribution to the project.
The Manager announced that Johnny Suire, Public Access Director submitted his resignation effective August 26th. Mr. Suire accepted a position with a private firm in the production business. Mr. Suire had been the producer of many of the Cable TV programs we have seen over the years including the Board of Selectmen meetings, On The Road featuring the Chamber of Commerce, For Your Health, and the new series HomeTown Holden airing this Fall. Tonight’s meeting will be the last meeting Mr. Suire produces for the Town. The Manager and the Board wished Mr. Suire well in his new work endeavor.
Town Manager Evaluation and Goal Setting
Sel. Renzoni said he had scheduled this on the agenda to start discussion on the subject in early September. Each member was asked to submit three or four goals for discussion at the goals setting session on Wednesday, September 7th at 7PM. Ms. Galkowski said her office would formulate the goals into a spreadsheet for review. Goals should be emailed to the Manager no later than September 1st.
The Board reviewed changes to the Town Manager’s Evaluation. Changes include two new rating categories and additional comment sections. It was agreed to discuss the changes at the September 7th goals meeting. The final evaluation will also be displayed at the library and website.
