Westport looks to hire firm for $100M school maintenance plan

School officials are looking to hire a capital program manager to help oversee the $100 million maintenance plan over the next decade and provide more oversight to the district’s facilities. Board members generally supported the idea, saying the cost is still less than adding someone to the staff once salary and benefits are factored in. He said the maintenance plan is incredibly complex due to all the sequencing, the state reimbursement process, managing and the pre-construction work needed for these projects. This firm could also help oversee the implementation of any capital improvement or modernization projects that arise as the district creates a master plan. The board expects to vote on sending out requests for proposals at its next meeting and select a firm this spring.
