Valuable historic artifacts must be evaluated professionally at great expense and “should only be considered for conservation of irreplaceable items.” Disposal of some of early America’s first town records may be the most economically feasible solution.The long and expensive list of 25 specific recommendations from MDPH include installation of a comprehensive HVAC system, removal and replacement of carpeting, repair of the chronic water leaks, improve roof drainage, replace ceiling tiles, improve ground-level drainage around the building, remove back trees and shrubs within five feet of the building exterior, contract with a pest exterminator, replace termite-damaged wood, and “refrain from storing paper and cardboard in areas prone to chronic moisture.”Along with the state’s assessment, the Rehoboth Board of Selectmen voted in August to approve up to a K expenditure for a thorough building “envelope” evaluation of the town office on Peck Street and the Public Safety Building that houses police, fire and EMS services.
