Department Heads

Fire Department: Acting Chief Quimby announced that Ed Millette has been promoted to Deputy Chief with call sign 54C2; Matt Cole has been promoted to Deputy Chief with call sign 54C3; Kris Cole and Kevin OíDonnell have been promoted to Lieutenant.   With the restructuring of Officers Acting Chief Quimby eliminated the positions of Clerk and EMS Coordinator.  The Officers will now take on those duties.  Kris Cole reviewed the recent call statistics.   Nancy will look into getting MS Office/Access for the Fire Department.  The Fire Department has two students right now and they are hoping to have two upperclassmen and two freshmen.

Building:  John Freeman reported that he received the fourth building permit on Higgins Road.

Police:  Chief Clarke has a laser radar class scheduled on the 16th.  He has submitted the paperwork to the Sherriffís Office for the Fire Department equipment that was not returned.  Chief Clarke may have more information about that issue tomorrow.  

EMD:  John Martell will review the Hazard Mitigation Plan and distribute.

Highway:  The dead tree in Hook Cemetery has been taken down.  The descendents to the cemetery called Jim to ask him to remove the tree.  Jim told him that he was only asked to take the tree down due to a public safety hazard, but he will see what he can do. Lane Road should be rough graded by the end of the week and paved the week after.  If the paving is delayed it may be open with a gravel base temporarily.  An incident report was done with the Police Department for a person who went through the barriers into the sand pile and has to be towed out.  

Jim looked into a fuel management system for the diesel tanks and the two quotes were for $3,700 and $3,200.  Mr. Paveglio and Mr. DeBold like the idea of a log book and honor system.

Jim answered the CIP questions and he is working on their follow up to his answers.  Jim met with Brandon Giuda regarding Barry Road.  Mr. Giuda offered to take the road over if the Town fixes the culvert and paves it.  The general feeling was that it was too expensive.  Nancy will look for records on the Road.

Library:  Lucille Noel reported for the Library.  There were sixty-nine kids in the summer reading program.  The donations in memory of James Mobbs totaled $1,400.  The Library is having a custom oak library table made in honor of Mr. Mobbs.   Matt Cole will be doing CPR/AED training for the Library employees.  

Supervisors of the Checklist:  Barbara Frangione informed the Board that Carmella Becker resigned and Judy Clark has been appointed to fill her position until the March election.

Food Pantry:  The Food Pantry has run out of monetary donations and is in need of nonfood items such as toiletries and cleaning supplies.  Mr. Jordan thanked Donna Chagnon for her work with the food pantry.

Comcast:  Mr. Paveglio will contact Brandon Giuda regarding Comcast.
Historical Society:  The Historical Society is in need of more room.  The Boy Scoutís are storing items in the Historical Society building.  They would like to use the attic in the Grange Hall to store the Boy Scouts property so that they will have more room.  The Selectmen are fine with storing the items in the attic.
