The Bedford Select Board is seeking residents to serve on the upcoming Fire Station Building Committee, which will help choose a designer and provide oversight of the construction project.
As voted last March by Annual Town Meeting, the Building Committee will include the fire chief (or his designee), the facilities director, and three citizen representatives “who have at least five years’ experience in building construction projects as a project manager, clerk of the works, architect, mechanical, electrical, or civil engineer or other discipline directly related to building construction.”
The motion also specified that “applicants with public construction experience” will receive preference. The wording indicated that the committee could be expanded.
To apply for an appointment to this committee, residents should complete a volunteer questionnaire available at https://www.bedfordma.gov/volunteer-coordinating-committee/files/questionnaire-for-volunteers. The deadline to apply is Nov. 28 at 5 p.m.
The Select Board will interview some applicants and make appointments at a public meeting.
Answers to questions are available from the town manager’s office at 781-275-1111 or [email protected], or a member of the Select Board or Volunteer Coordinating Committee.
