DEVENS — The Devens Enterprise Commission may invest an extra $200,000 in the Eco-Efficiency Center as part of next year’s budget.
DEC Executive Committee members met Tuesday morning to brainstorm the budget for fiscal 2015, which begins July 1. Funds for the Devens Eco-Efficiency Center, along with iPads for the commissioners, topped the wish list.
Dona Neely, executive director of the DEEC, asked the committee for $200,000 to eliminate the center’s net deficit and hire more staff. The DEC has an extra $550,000 in revenue from permit fees for the $750 million Bristol-Myers Squib project completed in 2009.
