The existing location of the emergency generator and <br />cooling tower (serving the Civic Center) prevents the development of the site as a complement to <br />the new Library. Staff was directed to explore alternative locations for this essential equipment. <br />The Town entered into an agreement Alfa Tech to provide design services for this project. <br />DISCUSSION: <br />A new location for the equipment was identified near the rear of the Civic Center adjacent to the <br />mechanical room. This site will require the re-use of four current employee parking spaces. A <br />visual and sound attenuating enclosure will also be constructed as part of this project. During the <br />equipment evaluation process, it was determined the useful life of the current emergency <br />generator has been exceeded and its generating capacity falls short of the Civia Center's current <br />needs. Alfa Tech was directed to recommend an appropriate emergency generator replacement <br />PREPARED BY: TODD CAPURSO '~~ ~~-~ ~7Zi <br />Director of Parks and Public Works . <br />_~, n ,a_ ,~~~..,~..-~.~,,.~, ,.n.~~~.. ~~~~.,~,ri~,.~_~.~.~..r.w. <br />Reviewed by: Assistant Town Manager/Deputy Directo T wn Attorney/General <br />Counsel/ Clerk Administrator/Secretary Finance Community Development <br />Ni\PPW\MANAGEMENT\COUNCIL\COUNCILREPORTS\2010 Reports\AugusY2\10-02 PageantGroundsAccessLnprvinnt.doc <br />
