The Board of Selectmen plans to form a Task Force to study Southbury’s Department of Public Works and benchmark its various activities and expenditures with other, similar sized towns.
The charge to the committee may include assessing the Town’s vehicle replacement reserve funding plan, comparing work done in-house by Town employees versus contracting out to other companies, or doing a cost-benefit analysis of renting/leasing equipment versus purchasing.
Findings and recommendations are to be presented to the Board of Selectmen within 6 months of committee formation.
Southbury residents who would like to serve on this committee should contact the First Selectman’s office at 203-262-0647 or by email to firstname.lastname@example.org to express their interest, offer their qualifications and/or experience and to ask any questions on the proposed study.
