Aldermen to vote on design work and location of playground
Alderman David Deane, board president, described the $15,000 cost for the design work as a bargain, saying it is worthwhile investment.
“I am concerned about the $15,000,” said Alderwoman Pamela Brown, Ward 4.
“We are in financial trouble,” said Soucy, mentioning budget woes within the school department and police department budgets.
If Leadership Greater Nashua is able to raise the estimated $250,000 to build the playground — a significant portion of that has already been collected — Soucy said he would hope that the group would return the $15,000 to the city. However, Soucy said he doesn’t mind fronting the cash to allow the project to move forward.
Mayor Donnalee Lozeau said the $250,000 was a cost estimate, and the final cost analysis may be significantly less.
A master plan focusing on preservation rather than development should be established, said Alderman David Schoneman, Ward 3.
