The good news is with respect to public safety building generator.  Upon further review, that generator is of sufficient size to power the entire building. Electrical work needs to be so that the generator is connected to the police station. 

The bad news pertains to the Tracy Hall and DPW emergency power generators. Both have reached the end of their useful life. "Just repairing for the next breakdown," is how Town Manager Durfee described their status. He, along with DPW Director Wiggins, are collecting information to replace both units this year.
