Capital Improvement Plan
The CIP committee has completed their recommendations and will be having a public hearing near the end of the month. The ten year total was whittled down to $2.9 mil. Items were moved out to achieve this goal. The committee took out the individual highway projects and put $100,000 in “undesignated”.
Mr. Austin is the primary shareholder in Chichester Condominium Corp and came to the Board to discuss the past due taxes on the property. Mr. Austin could not meet the terms of a prior agreement due to financial constraints. He said that the Corporation is in bankruptcy. The Selectmen have agreed to accept payments of $500 per month on the back taxes and will review again in four months. Nancy will draw up an agreement.
Carpenter Park: Mr. DeBold reports that the committee will have enough funds to do the add alternate to the Carpenter Park project due to generous donations. The Park and Rec committee recommends awarding the add alternate to Merrill Construction for $16,000. There were two other bids $15,000 and $25,000.
Mr. DeBold made a motion seconded by Mr. Paveglio to award to Merrill Construction the add alternate #1 for completion of the Carpenter Park project. Motion passed. The project is expected to be complete by Thanksgiving.
Road Advisory Committee: Mr. DeBold reports that the RAC would like to make a change to their charter. They would like to eliminate the wording “three years” and “ten years” as it relate to short and long term goals. They would like to strike the word “maintenance”. Mr. Paveglio suggested replacing “no later than September 30th” as it relates to when the report is due and replace with “prior to the start of the budget process”. Mr. DeBold made a motion seconded by Mr. Paveglio to make the discussed changes to the Road Advisory Committee charter. Motion passes. The Selectmen will sign a new charter at their next meeting.
Food Pantry: Mr. Paveglio made a motion seconded by Mr. DeBold to accept and expend unanticipated funds in the amount of $100.00 received from Frank and Joyce Lemay for the benefit of the food pantry. Motion passed.
Heritage Commission: Lucille presented the Board with her final report on the window restoration. The report was extremely thorough with excellent presentation.
Library: Lucille provided an update on the Library meeting room progress.
A motion by Mr. DeBold and seconded by Mr. Paveglio to adjourn the meeting at 8:25. Motion passes.
