Scituate officials will spend approximately $35,000 left over from MBTA mitigation funds to renovate the Scituate Harbor Community Building and open the building for public rental and use. According to town officials, selectmen approved spending on such items as $17,500 on carpeting; $2,000 on the repair, painting, and cleaning of the bathrooms; $1,800 on a fire alarm system; $3,000 to install a work sink, hand sink, work table, and refrigerator; and $2,500 on door locks and hardware. “Beforehand, the place was not in the position to rent it out extensively,” said Selectman John Danehey. “. . . We wanted to get it open and open it to the town.” A fee structure will be put in place, and facilities manager Kevin Kelly will oversee the rentals. Long-term plans with the community building are still pending. “However, at this point we’re looking at more higher priorities that need to be addressed,” Danehey said.
