New Britain Common Council to consider adding language to Code of Ordinance for school building projects

The city’s Common Council will consider adding language to the Code of Ordinance to allow for more oversight on school building projects. As it stands, the current resolution allows the School Building Committee to oversee the preliminary plans and cost estimates for school construction projects, which are presented to the mayor, the Common Council and the Board of Education. The School Building Committee plans and supervises the construction of all proposed schools and reviews existing school construction plans to revise them when necessary and practicable. The additional language outlines the committee would also supervise “modifications” or “renovations” of any kind to school buildings. According to the proposed resolution, the purpose of the change is to allow that any construction or modification of a school be submitted through the School Building Committee.
