Eagle Scout to build Southwick sand shed

SOUTHWICK – The Board of Selectmen this week approved funding an Eagle Scout project proposed by Cote Small.
Small asked permission to build a new sand shed for residential use. The current shed is in disrepair and in an inconvenient location.
Cote proposed building the new shed at the Department of Public Works on College Highway at the forefront of the property. Much of the parking lot is fenced off to protect equipment, but residents would be able to access the new sand shed.
“This will allow people to pick up sand and not enter the back lot,” said Chief Administrative Officer Karl Stinehart.
Board Chairman Joseph Deedy asked if there would be any Americans with Disabilities Act concerns.
Small consulted with Building and Grounds Manager John Westcott on the project and Westcott assured the Board there were no ADA issues and there were handicap accessible parking spots as well as regular spots near the shed area.
Cote requested $2,600 in materials and said the work would be performed over two weekends and he hoped to be done in May.
The funds were already earmarked in the DPW budget.
