Here is a YouTube video of the complete 1/11/12 meeting of Northampton’s Board of Public Works. This video is 52 minutes long and was recorded by Mimi Odgers.
At 47:53 on the video, Ward 7 City Councilor Gene Tacy addresses the board, saying that more communication between the board and the city council is needed. In particular, he seeks more frequent meetings of the City Council-Board of Public Works Conference Committee. Tacy believes this might have prevented Northampton’s Sewer Enterprise Fund from becoming responsible for paying for significant cost overruns in the upgrade of the Bradford Street Pump Station.
