Edgartown has received a state grant for sustainable design at the new town library.

Library trustee and building committee member Chris Scott told selectmen Monday that the library had received $125,053 from the Massachusetts Board of Library Commissioners for achieving silver (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) certification.

“We’re very pleased that after a really long, detailed process the library received...certification,” Mr. Scott said. He told selectmen that the grant could be used for any library related purposes or construction costs, and selectmen could opt to use the funding to pay off some of the bond the town borrowed for the $11 million project.

After brief discussion, selectmen voted unanimously to put the money toward the town’s bond.

“That’s in the best interest of the town,” selectman Margaret Serpa said.

“It’s a substantial amount of money, so we’re delighted we can return some of it,” Mr. Scott said.

“And we’re energy efficient,” selectman Michael Donaroma said.

In other business, selectmen asked town highway superintendent Stuart Fuller to place signs in the parking lot by the Yellow House. The parking lot was acquired last year by the town and is now public parking. Parking will be limited to two hours a day.
