Grange Hall Selectmen's Office
Approved Minutes of the Meeting of June 9, 2016
Present: Bob Mann, Blaze Konefal, Dawn Marshall, Zach Boyajian, Gordon Jones, Marianne Hromis
Call to Order by Bob Mann at 7:05 pm
Presentation by Eversource and Normandeau Associates on proposed Eversource Switching Station on Class 6 road off of Ring Road and Ingalls. Eversource is applying for a standard wetlands permit from DES which will impact 5804 sq feet to upgrade the site of the switching station. The upgrade will allow for a bucket truck to access poles for regular maintenance and for plowing in the winter. The site will not be paved. Construction will consist of applying a stabilizing fabric to the site, followed by gravel and then crushed stone, which would all be rolled. Silt fencing will be used to prevent any disturbance to the wetlands. For more information contact Donna Keeley: firstname.lastname@example.org.
