Chichester Board of Selectmen
Minutes of Meeting
July 27, 2010

Members present:  Jeffrey Jordan, Richard DeBold, Michael Paveglio
Others Present:  Nancy Tanner (Town Administrator), Barbara Frangione, Walter Sanborn, Alan Mayville, Donna Chagnon, Fuat Ari, Leslie Ari, Matt Cole, Kris Cole, Marc Fournier, Doug Hall, Richard Moore, Brian Boyer

Chairman Jordan opened the meeting at 7:00PM.  

Ari
Mr. DeBold presented Fuat and Leslie Ari with the recorded easement for their driveway.  
Mr. Ari is still troubled by the fact that he has no road frontage.  Mr. Ari feels that if he wanted to sell his house not having the frontage would affect the sale value. He asked the Board why the Town issued a building permit to him when he was not in compliance with zoning.  There was a long discussion about the issuance of the permit and whether the Town needed to take action to rectify the situation.  Nancy will contact legal council on the matter.
Mr. Ari also asked about an abatement with the consideration that he has no road frontage.  Nancy will check with the assessor to see if it would make a difference on his assessment.

Alan Quimby
Acting Chief Quimby inquired if the Board had an answer to his question from last week about rehiring terminated employees.  Mr. Paveglio said that he did contact the Town Attorney but needed to have a discussion with the full board before he could give an answer.  Mr. Paveglio advised that as far as making administrative changes the Board has already given acting chief    Quimby authority to do so.

CIP Committee
Mr. Jordan asked the CIP Committee to speak with the Selectmen because he is concerned about the amount of time spent by Department Heads on the CIP reporting.  Richard Moore said the committee did ask the Road Agent for additional information.  He said that Jim was doing a good job, but they needed clarification on a few items.  Richard Moore explained the additional information and why it was needed.  
Mr. DeBold said that he felt the committee was asking for too much information and he did not feel it was the committee’s responsibility to sit in judgment and critique projects for their worthiness.  He feels they should rely on the Department Heads to have previously determined a project’s worthiness.  Doug Hall reference a manual for the CIP committee which does state that one of the duties of the committee is to prioritize.  There was discussion about how the committee prioritizes and how that helps the Towns tax rate.  

Other Business

Fuel Bids
The sealed bids opened by Chairman Jordan were as follows:     
Rymes: 2.479
Davis: 2.45
Fred Fuller: 2.375
Mr. Paveglio made a motion seconded by Mr. DeBold to accept the bid from Fred Fuller Oil Company for 2.375 per gallon. Motion passes.

Zoning:  Mr. Paveglio spoke to Russell Abbott at Atlantic Traders regarding the Selectmen’s recent letter to him.  The letter allowed the temporary signage for 15 days before and 15 after an auction.  Mr. Abbott said the 15 days after do the business no good.  He would like for the signage to be allowed 30 days before and no days after.  There was a discussion about how long the signs would be up and how many auctions there are in a month.  There was a concern that if there was an auction once a month the signs would remain up all the time.  
Richard DeBold made a motion seconded by Mr. Jordan to allow the use of temporary signage at Atlantic Traders to be put up fifteen (15) days prior to an auction and to be removed immediately after the auction.  Motion passes by a 2-1 vote (Paveglio voted no).
