Waterford selectmen approve hiring of manager to oversee firehouse project

The Board of Selectmen on Tuesday approved spending $306,650 to hire a program manager who will oversee the construction of the new Oswegatchie firehouse. Downes Construction Co. of New Britain will develop bids, review construction drawings, assist in the selection of the building contractor and oversee the day-to-day construction while reporting back to the building committee. The building committee interviewed three candidates for the job before voting 5-2 to select Downes Construction, Tuneski said. Asked by First Selectman Rob Brule about the project’s impact on taxpayers, Tuneski said constructing a new building is only one of the options.
