                               MINUTES
              REGULAR MEETING OF THE BOARD OF DIRECTORS
                         JULY 5, 2011 – 7:00 P.M.
                    LINCOLN CENTER HEARING ROOM

PRESENT:    Mayor Spadaccini, Deputy Mayor Diana, Secretary O’Neill, Directors Kissmann,
            Moran, and Tweedie

ALSO:       General Manager Shanley and Assistant Town Attorney O’Neil

1.   MEETING CALLED TO ORDER.

     The meeting was called to order at 7:03 p.m. All in attendance participated in the Pledge
     of Allegiance to the Flag, led by Mayor Spadaccini.

2.   AWARDS AND PRESENTATIONS.

     There were no awards or presentations.

3.   OPENING OF MEETING TO ELECTORS OR TAXPAYERS WHO WISH TO BE
     HEARD ON ANY SUBJECT WITHIN THE JURISDICTION OF THE BOARD
     OF DIRECTORS. (Sign-up sheet available 15 minutes prior to the start of the meeting.)

     Janet Heller, 452 Adams Street, spoke in favor of the adoption and use of the Green
     Master Plan. She spoke of energy conservation and green space. She is in favor of the
     Greener Manchester initiative and thinks it will build pride.

     Diane DeJoannis, 280 Scott Drive, supports the adoption of the Master Green Energy
     Plan. Last year, her group submitted a petition with the names of over 200 people
     interested in this type of initiative. She spoke of increasing recycling for private
     households, businesses, and schools. One suggestion in the plan is changing trash
     collection to every two weeks, and recycling to every week.

     Eileen Sweeney, 86 Hawthorne Street, expressed concern about the loss of Manchester’s
     landmark buildings and small clusters of houses. She asked Town officials to be mindful
     of shortsighted decisions. Historical buildings help tell the story of those who came
     before us and Manchester is rich in history. Ms. Sweeney thinks Manchester should
     work to keep the John Olds house and requested a public forum on this issue. She would
     like Manchester to replace trees that have been cut down and add more bus stop shelters,
     as well as focusing on serving the masses. She would like to see benches and fountain
     water returned to Center Memorial Park.

     George Nelson, 40 Garden Street, spoke in support of the Green Master Plan. Focus on
     green buildings is important and can be accomplished with goals that will realize
     monetary savings. The United States General Services Administration manages 1500
Board of Directors                                                                      July 5, 2011
Minutes                                                                                 Page 2 of 13



       properties and, after the implementation of LEED standards, realized a 3% energy
       savings yearly.

       Terry Parla, 55 Bruce Road, said the John Olds house has been threatened with
       demolition. It was built in 1776 for John Olds, who is known as the father of
       Manchester. Alan Olmstead and his wife lived in that home and were under the
       impression the home is to be preserved. The home has been on the National Register of
       Historic Places since 2008. She sent a letter to the Town asking that the demolition be
       postponed 90 days so the community can get together to discuss what can be done to
       preserve this home.

       Fred Spaulding, 18 Myrtle Street, reviewed that ten years ago 36 parking stalls were
       suggested as a library adjunct; that suggestion was defeated. Two years ago, new
       development plans presented themselves, then a lesser model was presented last year.
       The Board of Directors completed a study of the library buildings and made
       recommendations. We are now presented with a new building scheme. All plans take a
       sizeable portion of Center Memorial Park. He rejects the concept plan and hopes the
       Board realizes his strong commitment to Center Memorial Park. Dr. Spaulding backs the
       Manchester Green Plan and saving historic buildings such as the John Olds house.

       Mary Ann Ettinger, 38 Garden Street, shared her experiences while circulating the
       petition to adopt the Master Green Energy Plan to her neighbors. She was astounded to
       find the people she spoke with grateful for the Town’s help. Her neighborhood is a
       microcosm of Manchester, with people of all ages, income and education levels, retired,
       blue collar, and temporarily unemployed. Everyone she spoke to is in favor of the plan.

       Bonnie Schuetz, 12 Conway Road, said the Town does not have money to expand the
       library. She mentioned some bricks on Main Street that are coming up. Ms. Schuetz
       questioned the future of the library. It is currently a babysitting facility. There are empty
       buildings on Main Street that could be used. The Board of Education is over budget on
       the Highland Park School renovations. The Town is giving the schools $200,000 for
       Martin School swing space and she wonders where that money is coming from. There is
       a racial imbalance in the school system and that is not being addressed.

       John Prytko, 224 Saddle Hill Road, thinks the Town could do a better job of holding
       taxes down than it is doing. Manchester already has two Town libraries and the college
       library; Mary Cheney Library doesn’t need an expansion. He suggesting taking the
       movies out of the library; having them there takes income away from people loaning
       videos. People are moving out of Manchester and Connecticut; we need to do something.

       Gene DeJoannis, 280 Scott Drive, is in favor of the Citizens for a Greener Manchester’s
       Sustainability Master Plan. It was easy to get people to sign the petition; no one thinks
       wasting energy and resources is a good idea. The plan is a comprehensive plan with six
       major categories, which he reviewed. He knows reduced energy costs will pay for the
       expense. He would like to see the Town be a leader toward improving the energy
       efficiency of its properties.

       Bill Ogden, 137 Branford Street, understands people would like the John Olds building
       remodeled and asked where the money would be coming from. His taxes have been
Board of Directors                                                                    July 5, 2011
Minutes                                                                               Page 3 of 13



       raised, but he hasn’t received any more social security income. Mr. Ogden referred to a
       car hit with a golf ball near Manchester Country Club and now the Directors are going to
       pay for a screen along the road. He asked where the Town stands with the Manchester
       Country Club land and how much it will cost to purchase it. He understands the Club
       just put a roof on for $40,000 and asked how much of that the Town paid for.

       Tom Stringfellow, 183 Hillstown Road, heard good comments about a greener
       Manchester. We can be a leader in the State. Something needs to be done about the
       library and he hopes something can be worked out in place. It will be costly to move.
       Something needs to be done with the access at Whiton Library. A library is not there to
       entertain; it offers good services, not just “babysitting”. Mr. Stringfellow mentioned a
       book about closing the achievement gap in education. Everything is not fine. More
       students are going to magnet schools.

5.     COMMUNICATIONS.

       There were no communications.

6.     REPORTS.
       A. Manager’s Report.

       General Manager Shanley welcomed Mr. Ogden back. He explained that as part of the
       new lease with Country Club, Inc., it pays rent and is responsible to make up to $200,000
       worth of improvements each year to the building. Fees paid by the golfers are used to
       improve the building and pay rent.

       General Manager Shanley reported that the test strip taken on Fern Street was not
       successful. There will have to be another test strip but not until we can confirm materials
       and technique. There have been material and application issues. He explained there were
       some issues on other projects but those have been completely paved. Those issues will
       need to be addressed by the contractor.

       Mark Carlino, Director of Public Works, explained that he is working with the
       contractor to reconstruct Fern Street. This is the same contractor that worked on Spring
       Street and Autumn Street. The Town does hold a bond and is in active conversations to
       get Fern Street completed properly. Late today, he found out there are problems with the
       bituminous and how it is put down. He needs to have further conversations with the
       contractor. He expects that most of Spring and Autumn Streets will need to be redone.
Board of Directors                                                                     July 5, 2011
Minutes                                                                                Page 4 of 13




       Director Tweedie asked if this contractor has any other contracts remaining with the
       Town and was answered in the negative.

       General Manager Shanley noted the permit for the landfill was extended to 2025; there
       has been no change in size or scope.

       General Manager Shanley announced the Greenway from Highland Park has been
       approved for extension to Porter Street at the expense of the State. Once the current
       piece is done, we will be able to start planning for the next phase. He congratulated Mr.
       Carlino and the Engineering Division.

           1. Green Energy Plan.

       General Manager Shanley said the Board has received a copy of the Green Energy
       Plan. The same plan in spreadsheet form breaks down categories, goals and objectives;
       this is a very comprehensive document. The spreadsheet breaks out each piece and
       provides a preliminary recommendation from staff. He would like to meet with Town
       staff and the committee to go through the spreadsheet to try to come up with consensus
       on priorities. On the Town’s website is a report of all energy improvement initiatives the
       Town has undertaken to date. We just finished relamping the Town buildings and the
       amount of savings is significant. The Town has had some recent experience with LEEDS
       silver standards through the Highland Park School renovation project and found it to be
       very costly. He would like to talk to the committee regarding its recommendation of the
       gold standard.

       Director Moran thanked the Citizens for a Greener Manchester and Town staff for this
       intense plan. He asked that General Manager Shanley go back to Town staff and find out
       the reason behind the recommendations for trash, recycling and water sources.

       Deputy Mayor Diana thanked the Citizens for a Greener Manchester for its
       comprehensive document. We have been getting the “low hanging fruit”; now we have
       to get to the higher hanging fruit. He would like to review the costs associated with some
       of the recommendations as well as a timetable.

       Mayor Spadaccini said a lot of the proposals may have a cost factor and before he
       endorses anything he would like to know the cost. He appreciates the work of the
       committee; it has a lot of good ideas. He reviewed some of the things the Town is
       already doing. He thinks, going forward, we should open the process up to more voices
       and people. A number of the recommendations will have a significant and profound
       impact on the business community. He expressed concern that approximately 25 of the
       100 recommendations were not endorsed by Town staff and another 40 only got a maybe.
       If one Town sets mandates for higher and more costly requirements than surrounding
       communities, it will not be hard to guess where people will not build. He thinks some of
       the recommendations may have potential to hurt economic development. Mayor
       Spadaccini thinks standards for private properties are best set at the State level. He noted
       a few items he would not support and said he would like to learn more about the cost of
       others. We need to be educated on how this will affect the taxpayers and business
Board of Directors                                                                                     July 5, 2011
Minutes                                                                                                Page 5 of 13



       community. Mayor Spadaccini said he appreciates the work done to date; there are a lot
       of good ideas. He looks to Town staff and citizens for their input.

       General Manager Shanley said there are some things Town staff would recommend not
       moving forward with. He would like to sit with the committee to discuss the
       recommendations in detail. He considers what the Board has now a draft. An achievable
       plan needs to be developed before a broader discussion is held.

       B. Other Reports.

       General Manager Shanley responded to an earlier question about the golf course
       property. The Attorney representing the parties involved has not responded so the item
       will be moving forward in court.

7.     PRESENTATION OF BID WAIVER REQUESTS.

       There were no bid waiver requests.

8.     PUBLIC HEARINGS (formally advertised).

             for continuing narcotics investigations, equipment, and/or training to be
             financed by proceeds from narcotics investigations.
          2. Pride in Manchester Special Grants ...............................................................$3,250

             are gratefully acknowledged and accepted and registration fees for photo
             contest.

             (Manchester Agencies, Police and School) Collaborative to be funded
             by the Office of Policy and Management.

       Mayor Spadaccini opened the floor for public comment at this time.

       Bill Ogden, 137 Branford Street, commented on Item 8.A.5. Sometimes young kids get
       in fights and once they are labeled they are stuck with that label the rest of their lives over
       a stupid fight. It is up to the police and the schools to make arresting a student the last
       thing on the agenda. He hopes the Board of Directors and the Board of Education can
       work something out. He suggested community service or joining PAL rather than
       arresting a student.
Board of Directors                                                                               July 5, 2011
Minutes                                                                                          Page 6 of 13



       Tom Stringfellow, 183 Hillstown Road, supports Item 8.A.1; narcotics agents put their
       lives on the line. Narcotics are still a major problem. He is glad Connecticut is
       recognizing the activity in the suburbs. He commended the Tri-Town Task Force. Mr.
       Stringfellow agrees with Mr. Ogden’s comments that a record stays with a person for a
       long time. People that serve time need a second chance. He asked about the good
       students at Manchester High School.

       Bonnie Schuetz, 12 Conway Road, referring to Item 8.A.2, reminded the Board that
       Director Zingler said there would be a report this month on Pride in Manchester
       activities. She supports Item 8.A.5 and is glad the police and schools are working
       together.

       There being no further public comment, the hearing on this item was closed.

       B. Appropriations to Education Special Projects as follows:
          1. Heisman Scholars – Achieving by Reading Program Grant (FY 10/11) ......$35,000
             for purchase of books at Nathan Hale and Washington Schools.
          2. Education Jobs Fund (Ed Jobs) Program (FY 11/12) ..............................$1,790,320
             for job retention and creation to be financed by a federal grant.
          3. Increase to Adult Education Grant (FY 10/11) ...............................................$3,943
             to be financed by the State of Connecticut Department of Education.
          4. Increase to Out-of- Town Magnet School Transportation (FY 10/11) .........$24,511
             to be financed by the State of Connecticut Department of Education.
          5. Increase to Manchester Head Start State Day Care Program (FY10/11)......$50,000
             to be financed by parent fees and State day care grants.

       Mayor Spadaccini opened the floor for public comment at this time.

       Tom Stringfellow, 183 Hillstown Road, said he supports all items. Regarding Item
       8.B.1, he said they are doing a remarkable job at Nathan Hale School. The Education
       Jobs Fund is vital; vocational education is important. Adult education is also important
       so people can better themselves to get a good job.

       Bill Ogden, 137 Branford Street, asked if the $1.7 Million was part of the stimulus
       program. General Manager Shanley said it is ARRA money specifically to support
       teaching positions. There was ARRA money that supported overall State budgets for
       schools but this is the end of any ARRA money. Mr. Ogden would like the Town to put
       people who live in Town to work.

       There being no further public comment, the hearing on this item was closed.

       Deputy Mayor Diana noted that we will be starting next year with a $1.7 Million
       shortfall. We are going to have a hard time with the budget and will have to make some
       serious cuts.

       General Manager Shanley explained that this public hearing is on the action plan that
       the Board heard at its last meeting. The Board cannot act on the plan tonight, but can act
       at either its first meeting in August or at its July policy breakfast. There have been no
       changes to what was presented at the last meeting.

       Mayor Spadaccini prefers to vote on this item at a regular meeting rather than a policy
       breakfast.

       Mayor Spadaccini opened the floor for public comment at this time.

       Tom Stringfellow, 183 Hillstown Road, said the money is going to good uses such as
       sidewalks and other necessary programs. Mr. Pellegrini and Ms. Donoghue always do a
       good job.

       There being no further public comment, the hearing on this item was closed.

             to engage design professionals to develop schematic plans for the

             Greenway to be funded by proceeds from the Broad Street
             Redevelopment Area bond funds.

       Mayor Spadaccini opened the floor for public comment at this time.

       Bonnie Schuetz, 12 Conway Road, asked why this money is being spent on a
       professional from another Town when we have someone right here in Town that can do
       this work.

       General Manager Shanley explained that this money will hire an architect who
       specializes in this area. We do not have an architect on Town staff.

       Ms. Schuetz said an architect has come out before and thinks this is a waste of money

       There being no further public comment, the hearing on this item was closed.

       Deputy Mayor Diana asked if this is a necessary step to move the project forward and
       was answered in the affirmative.

       Director Tweedie asked if this will hold up construction on Edgerton. General Manager
       Shanley said it may actually speed it up. We cannot invest money in Edgerton until we
       know what we will do there.

       M. Discussion: Library concept and cost estimates.

       General Manager Shanley said the object of his presentation is to bring the Board’s last
       directive to a conclusion and ask for direction. We are all aware that Mary Cheney
       Library needs millions of dollars worth of work for items such as ADA compliance, air
       handling, and boilers, but he is hesitant to recommend investments without clarity of the
       future of the building. He left the last discussion with the directive to revisit the 2003
       needs analysis, which we have done. The Board of Directors directed staff to engage an
       architectural firm to work with the square footage, layout, and impact of the needs
       analysis.

       The current area of Center Memorial Park is 7.64 acres. Of that, 73.8% is planted. The
       Board gave a directive to make use of as much paved or concrete space as possible. The
       proposed plan retains 72.7% of planted area, with about a 1% difference. General
       Manager Shanley displayed a slide with the current layout showing the current paved
       area of about 14,000 square feet. He showed a conceptual site plan that shows the new
       addition, with restructured parking. The parking directly behind Probate Court will be
       eliminated and a lighted pathway will lead to parking at the Town Hall. This is a critical
       component of the plan. He pointed out an area in dark green that was recaptured for park
       space. Before, it was concrete and unused space.

       The addition will have entrances in the front and from Linden Street. Parking will be
       available on Linden Street and at the Town Hall. The demolition of the YSB building
       will create parking. Employees will park at the Town Hall. He showed a closer view to
       give an idea of the amount of pavement covered by building or reclaimed. Since there is
Board of Directors                                                                    July 5, 2011
Minutes                                                                              Page 11 of 13



       now a Bocci court at the Senior Center, this Bocci court will be eliminated and Unico
       will be paid back. Parking will be available for the Probate Court off of Linden Street.

       General Manager Shanley said the existing planted coverage of the park is 73.8% and
       with the expansion, the planted coverage will be 72.7%. There are 25 existing parking
       spaces on Main Street and with the proposed plan there will be 34 spaces. Existing
       library staff parking is about 10 spaces. With the proposed plan, employees will park at
       the Town Hall. Existing Probate Court parking consists of about 10 spaces and with the
       proposed plan there will be 8.

       General Manager Shanley then reviewed the conceptual floor plan diagrams. He
       pointed out that both Main Street and Linden Street will have an entrance and reviewed
       the proposed main level layout. Next he reviewed the proposed lower level layout.
       General Manager Shanley displayed building elevation views from Main Street, from
       Center Park, and from Center Street. He then displayed photomontages of before and
       after views from three different angles. He noted that the back of the Probate Court
       building will need some restoration.

       General Manager Shanley reviewed preliminary cost estimates, which take into account
       the millions of dollars we will need to spend to bring the building up to code. The total
       cost of about $10 Million includes the demolition of the YSB building and parking at that
       location. It also includes soft costs such as architectural costs. A lot of effort has been
       taken to include public and Board of Directors’ feedback into the plans. He is pleased
       with the reclamation results and that we are making full use of the already paved areas.

       Deputy Mayor Diana asked about the location of the heating and air conditioning units,
       as well as dumpsters.

       General Manager Shanley said there will be a service entrance off of Center Street for
       use in off hours. Most deliveries are made through the front door. There is space
       available in the basement area labeled Building Services that may be used for HVAC
       equipment.

       Mr. Carlino added that the addition is planned with a flat roof and that may also be
       utilized for HVAC equipment.

       Deputy Mayor Diana said he likes the idea of cleaning up the back of Probate Court.
       He thinks that will improve use of that part of the park.

       Director Tweedie asked about the net parking spaces before and after. General Manager
       Shanley said we will realize a net gain. Parking will be moved from behind Probate
       Court to Linden Street. With a lighted walkway, we will realize a significant gain at
       Town Hall with the demolition of the YSB building.

       Director Tweedie said only 1.1% of green area will be taken from the existing park. He
       wondered what can be done to guarantee no other land in the park is developed. He
       asked why the exterior façade can’t be matched. General Manager Shanley said the
       building has the same brick. He suggested a committee be formed to work out those type
Board of Directors                                                                     July 5, 2011
Minutes                                                                               Page 12 of 13



       of details. He explained that it is a well known architectural device to separate an
       original building from new with the use of glass.

       Director Moran asked if there is any way to move the Bocci courts. General Manager
       Shanley said they can stay but with the little use they get now, he chose to try to reclaim
       some unplanted park.

       Director Moran asked how to control people from not parking at Probate Court when
       they are going to the library. General Manager Shanley said signs can be placed that say
       Probate parking only.

       Director Moran verified that the new plans do not touch the monuments and was
       answered in the affirmative. He asked what the total cost of this project is estimated to
       be. General Manager Shanley said estimates are between $9.2 and $11 Million to
       remodel and repurpose the building.

       Director Moran asked how the construction will affect the intersection. Mr. Carlino
       said the new portion of the library will be constructed first and we would move into it
       while renovating the old section. He expects there will be a new traffic signal at Linden
       Street.

       Director Kissmann expressed some concern about the location of the rubbish containers.
       General Manager Shanley noted the location according to the concept plan but said these
       are the kinds of details a committee would work out. Director Kissmann said a good job
       was done with reclaiming green space.

       Secretary O’Neill asked if the shuffleboard court is still there. General Manager
       Shanley said it is, at the corner of Linden and Myrtle. It is recommended for removal and
       reclamation of grass.

       Mayor Spadaccini said this proposal is very impressive and it is obvious that a lot of
       hard work went into developing it. A conscious effort was made in maximizing the green
       space. A 1% difference is very close to what we currently have. He thinks the plans
       have the potential to make the park better and more usable. Mayor Spadaccini agrees
       with Director Tweedie about the façade of the new building and is comfortable resolving
       this through the committee. A lot of effort has been put into the competing ideals of
       servicing the needs of the library, space needs, and preserving the green areas.

       General Manager Shanley suggested a resolution that includes establishing a committee
       to do just that for the August agenda.

13.    COMMENT AND DISCUSSION BY BOARD MEMBERS ON ITEMS FOR
       FUTURE AGENDA OR OF GENERAL CONCERN.

       Secretary O’Neill asked if there is a bond question the Board needs to deal with in
       August. General Manager Shanley will have a formal recommendation from staff.

       Deputy Mayor Diana said the Fourth of July Committee did a great job; it was a
       fabulous event.
Board of Directors                                                               July 5, 2011

       Mayor Spadaccini agreed that committee does a great job year in and year out. There
       was a big crowd this year.

14.    ADJOURNMENT.

       The meeting was adjourned until the August 2, 2011 Regular Meeting of the Board of
       Directors at 7:00 p.m. in the Lincoln Center Hearing Room.

From: Erica Bromley
      Director
      Youth Service Bureau

Re:    Item for Board of Director’s Agenda

Background
Manchester Youth Service Bureau, as a member of the East of the River Community
Collaborative, will be acting as the fiduciary for a $2500 grant from the CT Department
of Children and Families, through Advanced Behavioral Health, Inc. The Manchester
YSB will outreach to surrounding YSBs in the East of the River Community
Collaborative catchment area to create new programs or enhance existing programs to
benefit youth and families with behavioral health needs. These youth will be identified
with the assistance of Community Health Resources, the agency which provides care
coordination for our area. The Manchester YSB will also consult with members of the
East of the River Community Collaborative, the Helping Hands Support Group, and Care
Coordination service providers from CHR in order to develop or enhance youth
programming.

Discussion
This is the third year we have received this funding. We will continue to run the program
that was funded last fiscal year, SibShop, which had positive attendance and outcomes.
Programming will have educational/life skills components (a curriculum and/or activities
to enhance positive youth development) and recreational components.


Financial Impact
The total grant award is $2,500

Recommendation
I request that this item be placed on the Board of Director’s agenda for appropriation to a
special grants fund.

Subject:      Appropriation and Resolution of funds to the Town of Manchester Health
              Department, Bioterrorism Grant for continued funding of Base Public
              Health Emergency Preparedness for funding cycle of August 10, 2011 to
              August 9, 2012 in the amount of $57,329

Date:         July 11, 2011

Background:
Historically, the Town of Manchester has received and managed federal Bioterrorism
funding during corresponding contract periods to develop and upgrade local and regional
public health emergency preparedness. Within each contract period challenging
deliverables are required which are submitted to the State DPH for review and approval.

The 2010-2011 funding to the Town of Manchester was used to continue development
and improvement of local and regional Public Health Emergency Response plans,
especially those areas identified via a Technical Assistance Review, a scored federal
review. Also we worked closely with our Regional Planning Team toward a regional
approach to Public Health Emergency Response, through regional exercises.

For the proposed contract funding cycle, August 10, 2011- August 9, 2012, additional
focus must be given to a nationally recognized standard entitled “Project Public Health
Ready” to promote unified capacity for a Public Health System Emergency Response.
Other requirements include the enhancement of our local plans to address DPH defined
deliverables under the next 5-year funding cycle that focus upon the 15 Public Health
Target Capabilities, a national standard to measure public health system preparedness
within the state, and from state to state.

Discussion/Analysis:
The Center for Disease Control and Prevention has notified the Department of Public
Health that Connecticut will be receiving a reduced amount of public health emergency
preparedness funding for the period beginning August 10, 2011 through August 9, 2012.
The Base allocation to the Town of Manchester in the previous year was $63,699.00.
However, DPH has recently notified local health jurisdictions of a planned 10% reduction
in funding, which decreases the funding to Manchester to a total of: $57,329.00
Financial Impact:
There is no financial impact to the Town budget.

Recommendations:
Requesting the following Board Actions:

1) Appropriation of funds to the Town of Manchester Health Department, Bioterrorism
   Grant contract, August 10, 2011 to August 9, 2012, in the amount of.$57,329.00
2) Adoption of a Resolution that Scott Shanley, General Manager, or his Agent, is
   authorized to enter into and amend any and all contracts with the State of Connecticut
   Department of Public Health in regards to the CDC Bioterrorism Cooperative
   Agreement for Contract Period August 10, 20101 to August 9, 2012, inclusive.

                     health education activities. In fiscal year 2010-2011, the Manchester
                     Health Department, in collaboration with the Parks and Recreation
                     Department, applied these funds to addressing the issue of obesity. As a
                     result, the Living Well after school Program was provided to 30 children
                     at Bennet Academy. Activities focused on physical activity, good nutrition
                     and wellness.

                     Recreation Department, will again apply these funds to providing the
                     Living Well after school Program for students at the 6th Grade Academy.

    DATE:           July 20, 201

    Back2round
    In FY07, the State of Connecticut Department of Transportation made funds available tb municipalities for the
    purpose of expanding existing Dial-A-Ride programs. Manchesterhas been the recipient of these funds since
    that time. Manchester recently applied and was approved for a secondfive-year grant covering the period July
    1,2011 through June 30, 2016. The grant award for FY12 is $40,000. These funds provide the following:
        .additional   service during peak midday hours to accommodatemedical appointments,
        .regularly   scheduled trips to select out-of-town destinations,
        .evening    service for Town-sponsored leisure activities during the Summer,
        .Saturday service for leisure activities

              Analvsis
    Discussion/
    This funding will provide a minimum of2000 one-way rides and 750 hours of service for a maximum of 475
    riders during FY12. A June 2011 ManchesterDial-A-Ride rider survey yielded more than 200 responses.
    Ninety-six percent of respondentsrated the program Excellent or Good.

    Financial ImDact
    A minimum municipal match is one of the eligibility requirements for this grant. Manchester has consistently
    met the match with its annual funding of the Dial-A-Ride program. Otherwise, there is no financial impact to
    accepting these funds.

    Recommendations
          .Appropriate     $40,000 in State Matching Program Grant funds for the first year of the grant contract
             period July 1, 2011 through June 30, 2012.
          .Authorize     the General Manager Scott A. Shanleyto sign and execute Agreements and Contracts, along
              with all necessaryAgreement/Contract documents, on behalf of the Town of Manchester with the

SUBJECT:      BOD AGENDA ITEM - CAPITAL WORKFORCE PARTNERS GRANT AWARD

DATE:         7/22/2011

CC:           FILE




      Background

    The Town of Manchester has partnered with Capital Workforce Partners for many years on a
variety of employment training programs, most notably the Certified Nurses Aide program and more
recently, the Medical Office Assistant program. These training programs have made it possible for
low income and/or TANF recipients to obtain careers in the allied health care fields.

      Discussion

    Recent changes in state funding for Medical Office Assistant programs have eliminated the need
for a separate program operated through the town. Capital Workforce Partners has, however,
awarded $25,000 to the town to “advance the strategic partnership in support of local workforce
development efforts”. This funding will be used to develop a plan for meeting workforce needs and

        The Project shall include architects', engineers' and consultant fees, surveying, easements

appropriation. In addition the Center Springs Connection to Broad Street shall generally consist
of the extension of Center Springs Park to the Broad Street Redevelopment Area, including park
land extension, the design and construction of pedestrian and vehicular connections,
landscaping, and related features. Said appropriation shall be in addition to all appropriations for
such purposes adopted prior or subsequent to the effective date of this resolution, unless
otherwise provided by the Board of Directors (“the Board”). The Board of Directors is
authorized to transfer amounts among purposes, so as to accomplish Public Works Capital
Improvement priorities as may be established from time to time by the Board, and within the
foregoing appropriation.

        Section 2. Upon approval of the Project and appropriation set forth in Section 1 at
referendum as required by Charter Chapter 5 § 25, $12,000,000 bonds of the Town or so much
thereof as shall be necessary for such purpose, are authorized to be issued to finance said
appropriation. Said bonds shall mature not later than the twentieth year after their issuance date,
and may be issued in one or more series in such amount as shall be determined on behalf of the
Board by any two of the Chairman of the Board of Directors, General Manager, and Director of
Finance (the “Town Officials”), provided that the total amount of bonds to be issued shall not be
less than an amount which will provide funds sufficient with other funds available for such
purpose to pay the principal of and the interest on all temporary borrowings in anticipation of the
receipt of the proceeds of said bonds outstanding at the time of the issuance thereof, and to pay
for the administrative, printing and legal costs of issuing the bonds. The Town may finance any
portion of the appropriation with bonds, notes or other obligations issued to the State of
Connecticut, the federal government or its agencies. Pursuant to Section 7-370 of the
Connecticut General Statutes, except as otherwise provided herein, the Town Officials are
delegated authority to determine the terms, details and particulars of borrowings authorized by
this Resolution, including interest rates.

        Section 3. Said bonds shall be sold on behalf of the Board by the Town Officials in a
competitive offering or by negotiation, in their discretion. If sold in a competitive offering, the
bonds shall be sold upon sealed proposals, auction, or similar method, at not less than par and
accrued interest on the basis of the lowest net or true interest cost to the Town. A notice of sale
or a summary thereof describing the bonds and setting forth the terms and conditions of the sale
shall be published at least five days in advance of the sale in a recognized publication carrying
municipal bond notices and devoted primarily to financial news and the subject of state and
municipal bonds. If the bonds are sold by negotiation, the purchase agreement shall be subject to
the approval of the Board.

        Section 4. The Town Officials are authorized on behalf of the Board to make temporary
borrowings in anticipation of the receipt of the proceeds of said bonds and to determine the
terms, details and particulars of each said borrowing, including interest rates. They shall be
issued with maturity dates which comply with the provisions of the General Statutes governing
the issuance of such notes, as the same may be amended from time to time. The net interest cost
on such notes, including renewals thereof, and the expense of preparing, issuing and marketing
them, to the extent paid from the proceeds of such renewals or said bonds, shall be included as a
cost of the project. Upon the sale of said bonds the proceeds thereof, to the extent required, shall
be applied forthwith to the payment of the principal of and the interest on any such temporary
borrowings then outstanding or shall be deposited with a bank or trust company in trust for such
purpose.

        Section 5. The bonds and notes herein authorized shall be in the denomination of $1,000
or a whole multiple thereof, be issued in bearer form or in fully registered form, be executed in
the name and on behalf of the Town by the manual or facsimile signatures of any two of the
Chairman of the Board of Directors, the General Manager and the Director of Finance, bear the
Town seal or a facsimile thereof, be certified by and payable at a bank or trust company
designated by said officials which bank or trust company may be designated the registrar and
transfer agent, and be approved as to their legality by Bond Counsel. The bonds and notes shall
be general obligations of the Town, and each bond and note shall recite that every requirement of
law relating to its issue has been duly complied with, that it is within every debt and other limit
prescribed by law, and that the full faith and credit of the Town are pledged to the payment of the
principal thereof and the interest thereon. The aggregate principal amount of the bonds or notes,
annual installments of principal, redemption provisions, if any, the date, time of issue and sale
and other terms, details and particulars of such bonds and notes, as applicable, shall be
determined by the Town Officials in accordance with the requirements of the General Statutes of
Connecticut, as amended. In connection with the issuance of any bonds or notes authorized
herein, the Town may exercise any power delegated to municipalities pursuant to Section 7-
370b, including the authority to enter into agreements moderating interest rate fluctuation,
provided any such agreement or exercise of authority shall be approved by the Board. Capital
project revenues, including bid premiums and income derived from the investment of proceeds
from bonds and notes issued pursuant to this resolution (and net investment income derived from
the investment of note proceeds) are authorized to be credited by the Director of Finance to the
project account and expended to pay project expenses customarily paid there from, provided that
such expenditures shall be applied against the appropriation, and the bond authorization shall be
reduced by the amount of capital project revenues so credited, and provided further that earnings
from the investment of note proceeds shall first be applied by the Director of Finance to pay note
interest expense.

        Section 6. Resolution of Official Intent to Reimburse Expenditures with Borrowings.
The Town of Manchester (the "Issuer") hereby expresses its official intent pursuant to §1.150-2
of the Federal Income Tax Regulations, Title 26 (the "Regulations"), to reimburse expenditures
paid sixty days prior to and after the date of passage of this resolution in the maximum amount
and for the capital project defined in Section 1 with the proceeds of bonds, notes, or other
obligations ("Bonds") authorized to be issued by the Issuer. The Bonds shall be issued to
reimburse such expenditures not later than 18 months after the later of the date of the expenditure
or the substantial completion of the project, or such later date the Regulations may authorize.
The Issuer hereby certifies that the intention to reimburse as expressed herein is based upon its
reasonable expectations as of this date. The Director of Finance or his designee is authorized to
pay project expenses in accordance herewith pending the issuance of reimbursement bonds, and
to amend this declaration.

        Section 7. The Town Officials are hereby authorized to issue and utilize without further
approval any financing alternative available to municipal governments pursuant to HR1,
“Making Supplemental Appropriations for Job Preservation and Creation, Infrastructure
Investment, Energy Efficiency and Science, Assistance to the Unemployed, and State and Local
Fiscal Stabilization, for the Fiscal Year Ending September 30, 2009, and for other purposes” (the
“American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009”), including but not limited to any “tax
credit bond,” or “Build America Bonds” including Direct Payment and Tax Credit Versions, or
by other federal legislation as may be enacted authorizing analogous municipal financing
alternatives.

        Section 8. The General Manager, or in his absence the Director of Finance, is hereby
authorized, on behalf of the Town of Manchester, to enter into agreements or otherwise covenant
for the benefit of bondholders to provide information on an annual or other periodic basis to
nationally recognized municipal securities information repositories or state based information
repositories (the "Repositories") and to provide notices to the Repositories of material events as
enumerated in Securities and Exchange Commission Exchange Act Rule 15c2-12, as amended,
as may be necessary, appropriate or desirable to effect the sale of the bonds and notes authorized
by this resolution.

        Section 9. The Project as adopted by the Board of Directors at this meeting shall be
submitted to the electors of the Town of Manchester for approval or disapproval at a referendum

Hi Matt,

I am writing to inform you that I have resigned from the Housing Commission. My term was up this fall

 attend and contribute. It doesn't seem fair.
      So I think it's best that I resign from the .Board and allow
  my position to be taken by someone who will be more available and able to contribute.
    I enjoyed my time on the Library Board, learned a lot, perhaps was even able to contribute a little, and I thank the
 DTC for
 the opportunity.
      Please offer my best wishes to Chairman JD and the other
 Board members for a positive and productive year with forward momentum toward an expanded library.
       Sincerely,
           Alan
  P .S. Please send this along to JD and Mike Pohl. Thanks

Good morning Mr. Shanley:

Please accept this as my resignation from the Town of Manchester Workforce Development
Commission. I appreciate the honor and opportunity to have served the Town of Manchester in
this way with the other members. I have a lot going on right now and am in the process of
moving out of Town.

Thank you very much,
