Ferrisburgh garage to get sprinkler system
FERRISBURGH — The Ferrisburgh selectboard on Oct. 7 approved in concept adding sprinklers to the new highway garage that will soon be built on Little Chicago Road.
Road foreman John Bull said he expected the cost of the sprinklers to be around $40,000, and that amount was affordable due to savings elsewhere on the $1.05 million project. Board members said they would back the proposal if final estimates came in as expected.
Bull said ground would be broken in November, with a January completion date.
Also at that meeting this past Tuesday, board members heard from Town Clerk and Ferrisburgh Day Committee member Gloria Warden that the Sept. 20 Ferrisburgh Day event at a Robinson Road property was a success. Town officials estimate between 150 and 200 residents and friends attended the event that featured a picnic, games and food-judging contests.
Warden said the committee is recommending to the selectboard that the event become an annual fixture on Ferrisburgh’s calendar.
“People felt welcome at the event and felt it was a great way to meet with people they hadn’t seen for a year or more,” she said.
