With the approval of the town council, Windham Town Manager Jim Rivers will enter into a contract with a company to oversee the multi-million dollar upgrade of the dispatch center.
The project is being funded using $3 million in funding from the state.
During their meeting on Tuesday, council members authorized Rivers to enter into a contract with STV Construction, Inc. by a vote of 10 to 0.
The company will be the “owner’s project manager.”
“This is a way of ensuring the project moves forward as quickly as possible,” Windham Town Council president Dawn Niles said.
STV Inc. provided a lump sum fee of $117,607, which is an estimate based on an initial scope of the work. The upgrade doesn’t involve any town funding.
STV has offices all over the country, including an office in Hartford.
