Minutes of Meeting
November 27, 2012
Members present: Mike Paveglio, Jeff Jordan, Richard DeBold
Others present for all or part of the meeting: Nancy Tanner (Town Administrator), Allen Mayville, Thomas Houle, Donna Chagnon, Lucille Noel
Chairman Paveglio opened the meeting at 7:00pm.
2013 IT bids: Follow-up from November 20th. The Town received three bids for IT services as follows:
Mainstay Technologies: $9,900
Paradigm Computer Consulting: $13,416
RMON Networks: $12,000
Nancy checked the references on Mainstay and all references were fantastic.
Mr. Paveglio made a motion seconded by Mr. DeBold to award the 2013 IT contract to Mainstay Technologies at an annual cost of $9,900. Motion passed.
Zoning: The Board received a letter regarding a trailer on a property that will have to be removed. Nancy will draft a letter.
2013 Health and Dental: Nancy explained that the insurance quotes by Melcher and Prescott never came through and the town will not be charged for their work. The process was made difficult with LGC’s proposal of contribution holidays. The contribution holiday makes it so advantageous to stay with LGC that many companies did not want to quote it. The Board agreed to continue with LGC.
Invoices: Mr. Paveglio questioned a bill for Continental Paving for $58,000. The Board was not aware that this project was put out to bid. The Board had previously authorized R&D to complete our paving projects for the year. If that did not occur then the purchasing policy should have been followed or it should have been brought back to the Board for a decision. The Board will follow-up with Jim next week.
Vien V Chichester: The Vien trial has been postponed and is no longer scheduled for next week.
2013 Budget: Nancy will have a complete draft budget by the end of the week. Mr. Jordan reminded the Selectmen to be thinking about the use of surplus at Town meeting.
Wells: The Board is still working with residents on salty wells. Mr. Paveglio will follow-up with a well company on some of the solutions he has in mind.
Trustees: There was a discussion about how the Trustees new investments have been working. Nancy will ask them for a report.
42 Main Street: There was a brief discussion about 42 Main Street. This property may be available for purchase and some residents feel the Board might consider that property for additional Town space needs.
Library: Ms. Noel reported that the Old Town House/Library has been listed on the State Historic Register.
A motion by Mr. DeBold and seconded by Mr. Jordan to adjourn the meeting at 7:47. Motion passes.
Approved when signed
