Budget discussion.  The budget request is the same as last year.

SUBJECT:  Cemetery Commission

Present:  Joanna McIntosh, Gilbert Vien

The commission submitted the 2002 budget request.  The Board suggested the budget request be increased to attend to the smaller cemeteries that haven’t been addressed for a while.  The budget is expected to increase $2500 to cover the added expense to address these neglected cemeteries.  The commission will get a firm price.

SUBJECT:  Board discussion

The Board agreed to take a credit from our liability insurance and reduce the budget request for 2002.

The Board agreed to budget for 80% coverage of single or  2-person for employees who work 25 hours or more.  Employees requesting a family policy will be allowed the cost of a 2-person.  The overall insurance costs increased 27%.  The Board determined that an employee must be on the Town’s policy to get coverage.  No compensation will be given for outside insurance.  Judy will draft a policy for the Board member’s signatures regarding health insurance coverage.  

A new budget line will be created to accommodate the capital reserve expenditures that the Board has authority to spend.  This will be offset by revenues of a like amount.

Judy asked the Board to replace a light bulb at the community building and replace the chain in the toilet.

Judy requested an estimate from Diamond Sign for a Town Office sign.

Respectfully submitted,

Jeffrey Jordan
