Minutes of Meeting
Tuesday, December 9, 2014

Member Present: Richard DeBold, Jeffrey Jordan, Town Administrator Jodi Pinard

Others Present: Patrick Clarke, Alan Quimby, Ed Millette, John Martell, John Freeman, Donna Chagnon, Philip Hitchcock

Call to Order: Mr. DeBold called the meeting to order at 6:30pm.


Department Heads

Police – Chief Clarke stated we are working on the Secret Santa Program. I have about 15 participants with more coming in. The school is also doing something similar so we are coordinating with them as well. I have a vacation time request. I have more time than I can carry over and I do not see how I can take it with being short personnel. I am asking if I can be paid out for my vacation. Billy and Josh have been able to take some time but I would be losing it. I have about 50 hours.

Consensus of the Board was to pay the Chief his vacation time over the 40 hour mark.

Highway – Nothing to report

Emergency Management – John Martell stated I have an invoice from Hubbard Consulting in the amount of $1,500. The first meeting of the Hazard Mitigation Plan Committee went well and we are working on updating the plan.

Fire – Chief Quimby stated I don’t have much. We are monitoring the weather and have a skeleton crew at the station. We had our training on Monday night with the SCBA mobile trailer from the State Division of Fire Standards and Training.

Building – John Freeman stated I have nothing to report right now. No permits have been issued.
