III.    Written Communication
  • Approval of the May 4, 2010 Selectmen’s Meeting Minutes
Jeff Harriman made motion to approve the May 4, 2010 Selectmen’s Meeting Minutes.  It was seconded by Mose
Russo III.  Motion carried.
  • Comments from the Public
Abe Parker expressed his disappointment that the flags were not up for Memorial Day.  He stated that he had found some and installed them himself.  Dan Nowell stated that several of the flags had been damaged by logging trucks.  It was suggested that the flags be installed higher on the poles.  There was discussion that other areas in Town would also like to have flags installed.  This will be researched.  The Board apologized to Abe and stated that the flags will be up for Veteran’s and Memorial Day in the future.

  • Old Business
  • Dock Discussion
This was to discuss the dock issue on Safe Harbor Right of Way. Jim Smith stated that due to committee members schedules, the committee did not have time to meet.  A meeting date of Monday, June 14 at 8:00am will be scheduled, this item will then be placed on the next agenda (June 15th).

Mike Borsetti addressed the Board concerning a “dock” issue on the Anderson Cove Rd.  His concern was that this area is a sub-division, which states that only utilities can be in the Right of Way, not a dock. Apparently, a permit for a dock permit was issued in 2003 which states that the Board approved a dock in this location in 1987.  Mike also stated that he is appealing the CEO’s decision to allow a dock in this location. The Board stated that since this was not on the agenda for this meeting, they will discuss it at their next meeting on June 15th.

  • General Assistance Discussion
Due to the absence of Board Member, Edythe Harnden, this issue will be placed on the next agenda set for June 15th.

  • New Business
  • Radio Grant Discussion
Jim Smith stated that the Fire Department won a grant to purchase radio equipment for the department.  He stated that 3 bids were received and that the Board needed to award the bid as the amount exceeds what the Town Manager can spend.  The lowest bid including parts and labor was Radio Communications Management, Inc. in the amount of $18,199 (RCM is the company Jim recommends).  Jeff Harriman made a motion to award the job to Radio Communication Management, Inc in the amount of $18,199.  It was seconded by Mose Russo III.  Motion carried.

  • Acceptance of a Boat from the Fire Company
Phil Strike, President of the Fire Company stated that for over a year, the Fire Company has been fund raising and has succeeded in purchasing a 2010 Ribcraft inflatable boat with a 40hsp engine to be used for water rescues.  The Fire Company would like to donate this boat to the Town.  The Town would have to insure the boat.  Phil stated that the Fire Company will continue fund raising to “outfit” the boat with lights, life jackets and other items.  He also stated that the boat will be housed at Station 1.  Jeff Harriman made a motion to accept the boat from the Fire Company.  It was seconded by Mose Russo III.  Motion carried.  Phil stated that the boat will be available for viewing this Saturday at the Town Meeting.  A big “thank you” goes out to the Fire Company.

VII.    Reports from Town Officials

  • The roof on Station 3 has been completed and looks very nice.  It is red in color.
