Agawam firm to study space needs

An Agawam architectural and engineering firm, one of seven bidding companies, has been awarded a contract to study the town’s space needs, with a focus on housing for public-safety departments. After consulting with the town’s Complex Building Needs Study Committee, selectmen last week gave the job to Reinhardt Associates. The bid was for $44,000 and the money was appropriated at Town Meeting in May 2012. “The space need for public safety is sorely lacking in this town,” said Town Coordinator Dale Pleau. “The space for the police is completely inadequate, as is the building for the Fire Department – especially as Plympton is moving to advanced life support [status], and we’re going to have personnel on 24/7.” Pleau said an appropriation for the space needs project will be sought at next year’s annual Town Meeting.
