TOWN HALL-LIBRARY PROJECT SPENDING CAP AMENDMENT
Whereas: Voters of the Town of Lyme approved construction of a new Library as well as renovation and expansion of the Town Hall at referendum in May of 2012, and
Whereas: Public financing for the project was capped at 3.7 million dollars and the total project cost fixed at 4.7 million dollars, and
Whereas: The bid solicitation process has resulted in a total project cost in excess of the original 4.7 million dollar spending cap, and
Whereas: the Lyme Public Library, Inc. has voted to provide private funding not to exceed three hundred and eighty thousand dollars ($380,000.00) to mitigate the increase in the total project cost in its entirety-
Now, therefore: be it resolved by the Town of Lyme, in Town Meeting convened, that the total project cost cap be raised from 4.7 million dollars to five million eighty thousand dollars ($5,080,000.00) with public financing to remain fixed at 3.7 million dollars.
