Perry Brook Road Project
Jim wants clarification on the 2009 contract with CLD. Jim needs two items for the wetlands permit; the drainage analysis and a stamped plan. Joanne Fryer said that CLD would provide those to Jim. Joanne reviewed the 2009 contract and the new proposals with the Board and Jim. The completion timeline was discussed. Nancy expressed the need to have a signed contract by the end of the year so that the funds can be encumbered if need be. The project needs to be put out to bid. The Board and Jim are comfortable with option 2 of the new proposals. Joanne will send over a contract for the Board to sign the cost is $10,000.
All the Selectmen have looked at Mayflower Drive. They all agree that the road needs to be fixed. Jim agreed to clean it up. There was a lengthy discussion about why the gravel was dumped on Mayflower Drive. Jim stated that he put the gravel there to facilitate the dumping of ditching material to several people on that road not just one. The discussion was ended with the determination that there remains to be inconsistencies in the events leading up to the dumping of gravel on Mayflower Drive. The road will be fixed to the satisfaction of the property owners.
Food Pantry: Mr. Paveglio made a motion seconded by Mr. Jordan to accept and authorize the expenditure of unanticipated funds in the amount of $50 from Catherine Edmondbailey and $50 from Josephine and Theodore Potter for the benefit of the food pantry.
2013 Budget: Nancy would like to try starting the budget season later in the year this time. She suggests reviewing all the budgets during one week at the beginning of December. This would entail meeting for three consecutive nights to get through the whole budget. She feels this would give a better idea of the whole budget and where we will be with the 2012 budget at that time. There can be follow-up meetings after that week. The Selectmen are in agreement.
A motion by Mr. Paveglio and seconded by Mr. Jordan to adjourn the meeting at 6:32. Motion passes.
Approved when signed
