Main Street renovation funds are approved in Nashua
On Wednesday, however, the committee reconsidered those two votes and ultimately approved the change orders. A special meeting of the aldermen had been planned for tonight to address the matter.
The committee, in reconsidering its previous vote, had little discussion on the matter. It also approved two separate funding requests associated with the ongoing downtown renovations, including $43,352 for light poles and $13,485 for light fixtures.
Tracy Pappas, commissioner for the board of public works, argued that her board never reviewed the requested truck purchases — aside from a brief replacement schedule review.
Commissioner Tim Lavoie of the board of public works requested a legal opinion on the matter, which maintained that the finance committee is limited in its scope of responsibility.
