South Boston Council looks at budget wish lists

SoVaNow.com / April 13, 2011
South Boston Town Council mulled the proposed $9.5 million budget this week, and spent a bit of time querying department heads on their wish lists.

The finance committee will tackle the budget in more detail April 25 at 3:30 p.m. in Town Hall.

Fire Chief Steven Phillips said upgrades or repairs to the station, on Broad Street, totaled more than $78,000.

But, of that, high-priority renovations will run about $34,000, he said.

Phillips said school groups and visitors trek through (the station is also a polling place), and he worries about public perception.

On the list are painting, replacement of windows and carpet, removing trees and upgrades to bathrooms and the kitchen.

Councilman Coleman Speece, who recently inspected the facility, said some items on the list were cosmetic, but that many were “definitely needed.”

The fire department also needs a replacement pumper, costing about $425,000 , Phillips said.

South Boston Police Captain B.K. Lovelace asked for new squad cars at a cost of about $274,000.
