Conservation Commission Warrant Article-
The Conservation Commission came before the Board to review a potential warrant article they would like placed on the warrant.
“To see if the Town will vote to place a conservation easement on town owned land Map 1 Lot 33 and Map 1 Lot 27-1 (Spaulding Town Forest) on Hutchinson Road, such easement to be held by a qualified conservation organization.”
These two parcels contain roughly 122 acres of land. All of the current recreational things that are allowable uses will continue to be such with this easement. This easement would be held by a qualified conservation easement holder as the Town cannot hold an easement on its own property. This would be for the preservation of the land.
Consensus of the Board was to place this on the Town Warrant to be voted on. The Board will formally vote on a recommendation at the Public Hearing January 31, 2017.
A motion was made by Mr. Jordan and seconded by Mr. Millette to abate the following taxes:
Map 4 Lot 156 Sub 37RV in the amount of $265.00 – the seasonal trailer is no longer on the property
Map 4 Lot 156 Sub 52RV in the amount of $244.00 – the seasonal trailer is no longer on the property
Travel Trailer 109-113 Dover Road
The Building Inspector informed the Board of a travel trailer parked on this property with a woodstove attached and looks to be lived in. This is a direct violation of the Town’s Zoning Ordinance. The Board instructed Mrs. Pinard to write a letter informing them of the zoning violation and start the process.
Old Home Day Committee Appointments
A motion was made by Mr. Jordan and seconded by Mr. Jameson to appoint the following individuals to the Old Home Day Committee:

Chief Quimby came before the Board with a request sell 1,000 feet of 4 inch hose to Clarendon, VT in the amount of $45 per 100 feet. This hose is no longer used by the department as they now use 5 inch hose.
