TOWN

OF CANTON

50 OLD RIVER ROAD


PUBLIC WORKS FACILITY PROPOSAL
October 26, 2016
INFORMATIONAL TOWN MEETING

Previous Studies
2007 - The engineering firm of Weston and Sampson performed the
following:
Facility Needs Assessment
Existing Site Assessment
Fuel Island Location Study
Weston and Sampson Findings:
DPW Facilities should be approximately 25,500 square feet
Estimated cost $7.8 million (2008 dollars)
Flood Mitigation Compensatory Storage may be possible if the Town is able to locate a
parcel with the same hydraulic reach and with a volume that was not
previously used for flood storage. Although feasible if such a property
exists, this would result in a substantial increase in construction costs
and as of now, no viable compensatory storage has been identified

Flood Mitigation

In order to compensate for the loss of floodplain, additional flood storage will
be created by deepening the existing floodplain. This will be accomplished by
lowering the softball field 9 to 15. The field will then be reconstructed and
utilized the same as it currently is.

Impact on Average Taxpayer


The annual debt payment for the Public Works Facility would be
$319,313.
Over the next five years, the annual payment would drop to
$282,625 and then continually decrease over the twenty year life of
the bond.
In the first and highest year of debt payment, taxes would be raised
.3 mils to pay for the debt.
This would be an increase of $68.61 in taxes to the average
homeowner. The average home in Canton has an assessed value of
$238,832.
