Chichester Board of Selectmen
Minutes of Meeting
Tuesday, December 2, 2014
Member Present: Richard DeBold, Michael Paveglio, Jeffrey Jordan, Town Administrator Jodi Pinard
Others Present: Ann Davis, Philip Hitchcock, Alan Mayville, Donna Chagnon, Lucille Noel, Jim Plunkett
Call to Order: Mr. DeBold called the meeting to order at 6:30pm.
Jim Plunkett stated he has reviewed his budget to see if he had enough remaining to purchase a new poly sander for the one ton truck. I have spoken to the Board about this in the past and had given quotes. I’ve waited to ensure that I would not go over budget. This sander would be used for town buildings and smaller roads off of Route 4. This also assists when we are called out for a spot treatment.
Mr. Paveglio asked if he had any repairs that would be charged to the Government Vehicle Maintenance Trust Fund?
Mr. Plunkett stated I believe the transmission repair for the one ton and the towing of the 2013 dump truck should be taken out of that trust fund.
A motion was made by Mr. Paveglio and seconded by Mr. DeBold to authorize the purchase a new 1.8 yard poly sander for the one ton truck from EW Sleeper in the amount of $4,650. This will over expend the sander maintenance line but will not over expend the bottom line of the highway budget. Motion Passes
Jim Plunkett stated the department is still waiting for the truck to come back. The 2013 was having a misfiring issue with the regeneration system. It was brought to Liberty International today. The truck was repaired while it was there and it was covered under the warranty.
General Business/Board Discussion:
Personnel Policy Changes
Mr. Paveglio stated there really are not that many changes as I remember talking with Nancy about this. The Personnel Policy will be reviewed at the next meeting.
Award IT Contract Bid
Mrs. Pinard reviewed the bids and the references that were received. I recommend to the Board to move forward with Rmon Networks.
A motion was made by Mr. DeBold and seconded by Mr. Paveglio to award the IT Contract to Rmon Networks for the 2015. Motion Passes
A motion was made by Mr. DeBold and seconded by Mr. Paveglio to approve the Investment Policy as written. Motion Passes

A motion was made by Mr. DeBold and seconded by Mr. Paveglio pursuant to RSA 31:95-n, the Board of Selectmen shall accept and authorize the expenditure of unanticipated funds in the amount of $100.00 received from Chichester Methodist Church to support the Food Pantry. It shall be the responsibility of the Town of Chichester to maintain accurate record of all funds, detailing their expenditures, and that such records shall be made available upon request. Motion Passes
Philip Hitchcock stated December 15, 2014 at 7:00 at the Grange Hall there will be a meeting for the 2015 Old Home Day Committee.
Donna Chagnon stated not all committee members we notified that this was happening regarding Old Home Day.
Lucille Noel stated the window sills were started today. This is a good thing that they are being done. It was suggested maybe talking a chalking gun and filling the gaps around the windows.
A motion was made by Mr. DeBold and seconded by Mr. Paveglio to adjourn the meeting at 7:15pm. Motion Passes
Not approved until signed
