General Business/Board Discussion:
Bureau of Trust and Land Appeals Decision - Map 3 Lot 68B
The Board reviewed the decision.
Mrs. Pinard informed the Board that Avitar would like to request the decision be reconsidered. There is nothing wrong with this and the Town itself can be harmed by doing it.
Consensus of the Board was to have Avitar submit a letter for reconsideration of the BTLA decision regarding this property.

Mr. DeBold referred to Mr. Moore’s emailing regarding Loudon not putting a sign in their Town regarding the No Thru Trucking of King and Canterbury Road.
Mr. Paveglio stated that he would like to notify them formally of the ordinance since it had not already been done.
Mrs. Pinard stated that she had reached out to Loudon and they were going to bring it up at the Board of Selectmen meeting tonight. She should hear something before the next meeting.

Mr. DeBold inquired about the light at the Library on the pole across the street.
Mrs. Pinard stated that she is concerned about the liability to the Town if this was to be done.
