Department Heads

Fire:  Chief Quimby is working on getting the opticom fixed. The June and July statistics were reviewed.  There were 51 calls in that time frame and 200 hours of training.  Matt Cole presented the Selectmen with the final draft of the Water Resource Plan.  It will be added to the Hazard Mitigation Plan.
The Department received a compliment from Concord Hospital for patient care.

Mr. Paveglio asked the Fire Chief to team up with the Building Inspector and do a life safety assessment for the Community Building.

Building Inspector:  John provided a summary report from July 4 – August 7.  Total fees = $2,449.92

Highway:  East Ricker Road is started.  The crew has been filling pot holes, installing culverts and touching up the gravel roads.  Jim is working with Donna Chagnon to organize the OHD tractor pulls.  The cab and chasse for the new truck is in.  Jim has a conceptual design for Kaime Road and will be reviewing it with the engineer.  
There was a discussion regarding seasonal/temporary employees.  Nancy stated that in order to be considered Seasonal/Temp an employees must be called in for a specific project or from day to day – not to be confused with a part-time employee. There was also a discussion as to whether the Town should be sending the Temp/Seasonal employees to training.  The Selectmen will look at the policy.

There was a follow-up discussion regarding Mayflower Drive (see minutes from 8/1).  There was a discussion about where to dump ditching material.  Mr. Paveglio is very concerned that the Town dumped gravel on Mayflower Drive, which is a private road.  Mr. Plunkett stated his reasoning for dumping the gravel on Mayflower Drive was that the road was to rough for the trucks to dump ditching materials at Chris Weir’s house. He also stated as a result of this issue he is no longer going to dump ditching materials on any town resident’s property and that he would bring them all back to the town shed. Mr. Paveglio did not think that was a good decision; however it is the Road Agents decision to make at this time. Mr. Paveglio also noted that the gravel was dumped past Chris Weirs house, down to Gil Vien’s house a highway department town employee.  Mr. Jordan will look at Mayflower Drive before the next meeting. Jim said CLD wanted another $27,000 to do a plan for Perry Brook.  Jim is not going to have them do it because he already has a plan done by them for the Perry Brook Road project and he does not need anything additional.  

Library:  There will be a book sale on Saturday.  Next week will be the end of the summer reading program and magic show.  

Larry Ryan
Mr. Ryan is one of the owners of Map 9 Lot 33.  He does not want the property and asked if the Town had any use for it.  Selectmen will consider.

Richard Steed
Mr. Steed asked for a nonpublic session due to the matter to be discussed.

Pursuant to RSA 91 –A:3 II (c) Mr. Paveglio made a motion seconded by Mr. Jordan to enter into a nonpublic session.  Roll call vote was unanimous.

Pursuant to RSA 91-A Mr. Paveglio made a motion seconded by Mr. Jordan at 8:45 to exit the nonpublic session.

Minutes of the nonpublic session were sealed indefinitely.

Other Business

Highway:  Mr. Colbert came in to offer a suggestion that the “road closed” signs be placed at the beginning of the road.  He also did not like the way he was spoken to by a town employee.  Jim Plunkett will address the issue.

RSA 31:105:  Mr. Paveglio made a motion seconded by Mr. Jordan for the Town to adopt the provisions of RSA 31:105 Indemnification for Damages.  Motion passes.


Payroll and accounts payable expenditures were approved.

A motion by Mr. Paveglio and seconded by Mr. DeBold to adjourn the meeting at 9:07.  Motion passes.




Respectfully submitted,
