IV Reports from Town Officials & Committees
A. Town Manager
Bob Irish Jr. stated that Transfer Station Attendant, David Crawford had found a resource to dispose of car batteries at no fee to the Town. He felt that since this is the case, that because our ordinance states that if the Town can dispose of items at no fee, then we should not be charging residents for disposal. The Board decided to stop charging for the disposal of car batteries.
Allen Crabtree inquired about left over funds in the C.I.P. and whether they are earmarked for that specific amount or if they are transferable to another account. The Board stated that the funds are ear marked for that specific item. It was mentioned that the Town could get a match from the State for the Sand/Salt Shed. In the event that such would occur, those funds would roll into the Undesigned Fund Balance.
C. Department Heads
Public Works Director, Richard Aube stated that the Town Hall parking lot paving was complete and that the project should come in under budget.
V Next Board of Selectmen’s Meeting is scheduled for: September 15, 2006 to conduct interviews for the Town Manager and September 19, 2006 to conduct normal business.
VI Comments from the Public
David Niles expressed his concern about speeding along Route 114. He stated that many residents are concerned about someone, especially children getting hurt. He suggested that “Bus Stop” signs be posted, or double line the road in that area. Allen Crabtree suggested that Mr. Niles contact D.O.T. and D.E.P. to get contact names.
