For Windermere Town Council’s first meeting of 2021, town staff and leadership will resume meeting in person.

Throughout much of 2020, the Town Council meetings took place virtually via Zoom. Later in the year, the town used a hybrid format and allowed some people to gather in person at Town Hall while others participated via Zoom.

The Tuesday, Jan. 12, meeting will be in person only rather than a hybrid format, but it will be live-streamed via Zoom for those who cannot be there.

One of the main agenda items is a vote on setting a guaranteed maximum-price contract for the new town facilities, which sets the spending limit at $4,768,662. Additionally, council members will vote on a similar contract for the new public-works shop facilities at a price not to exceed $394,327.

Also up for discussion is a man-hour fee estimate from Orange County Utilities regarding stormwater and roadway improvements to West Second Avenue. The estimated cost is $20,020. According to town documents, the estimate is an addendum to the original task order for these improvements, as potable water design and relocation was not included in the original scope.

Town Council meets at 6 p.m. Jan. 12 at Windermere Town Hall, 520 Main St. To view the agenda and livestream link, click here.
