General Business/Board Discussion:
Complaint regarding 18 Horse Corner Road
Mrs. Pinard reviewed the complaint received from a citizen regarding this address. We are in the process of contacting the actual property owner to verify that the property has been rented and to inform them that a complaint has been received by the Board.
Consensus of the Board was to wait to hear from the property owners.
Complaint on Martell Road
Mrs. Pinard reviewed the complaint received by a resident. Chief Clarke has spoken with the complainant and informed them to report any fires that may be going on as well as to call when the dog is barking so that this can be dealt with as it happens.
NHDOT Route 4 Transportation Project
Mr. Paveglio stated that we have received some information regarding the resurfacing of Route 4. This is strictly a resurfacing project not a reconstruction project. There will be added turn lanes while limiting the double lane of travel. They will also be showing arrows for turning left onto King Road from 393. The information sent to us from the State is available at the Town Offices.

Mr. Houle asked about Price Auto wanting to add an inspection station to their building. I don’t think this is a change of use. I think this just adding a service.
Mrs. Pinard asked if she could consult the Town Attorney about whether or not the Board can interpret Change of Use for applicants.
Mr. Paveglio stated that I think that these decisions can be easily made by this Board when they are cut and dry.
Mr. DeBold stated that I am not sure if that is something that this Board can do.
Mr. Houle stated that I do not think that they should need to go to the Planning Board if it is something that is cut and dry.
Lucille Noel stated that I have an inquiry about the budget and who would be maintaining the walkways at the Library. Should we hire someone to do that?
Consensus of the Board was that the Town was not hiring someone for this type of work but maybe the Library could find a volunteer.
Mr. Reinhardt stated that we could not find the other property marker in the rear of the area we wanted to clean out. We will be at least 20 feet from the property line. So my question is can we move forward and clean out that area across the parking lot.
Consensus of the Board was that they could move forward and clean that area out.
Mr. DeBold stated that tomorrow night is the Public Hearing for their budget. One of the items is raises and I just wanted to make the Board aware. I am representing the Town and would like to have input on the vote. The employees are still given incentives which are on top of any salary increases. The Budget is not increasing.
Consensus of the Board was there were no issues with the budget as it was not increasing.
Non-Public Session 91-A:3 II (c) matter which if discussed in public would likely affect adversely the reputation of any person, other than a member of the public body itself.
A motion was made by Mr. Paveglio and seconded by Mr. DeBold to enter into non-public session under RSA 91-A:3 II (c). DeBold Aye, Paveglio Aye, Jordan Aye. Motion Passes.
A motion was made by Mr. Paveglio and seconded by Mr. DeBold to exit non-public session DeBold Aye, Paveglio Aye, Jordan Aye. Motion Passes
Being no further discussion, a motion was made by Mr. DeBold and seconded by Mr. Paveglio to adjourn the meeting at 7:42 pm. Motion passes
