Video of the BoS meeting of August 21st 2014 can be found here on the Town website.
Some highlights: The BoS approved by a 3-2 vote to amend the ABC charge. The ABC charge had previously included a review and comment of the collective bargaining agreement for the School District. The amended charge includes review of the "governing bodies" ( Town and School Board) CBA's after they have been negotiated since the Town now has the Moultonborough PD union.
There was extensive discussion of the role of the ABC in voting on all warrant articles vs. just those that are monetary articles. The charge specifies all warrant articles appearing on the Town and School warrant articles.
The ABC issue was followed by a lengthy discussion of the proposed UNH BRC feasibility study. A major issue was about the focus groups being open to the public to observe. I was strongly in favor of keeping the session open, but the BoS voted to keep the groups in closed session by a 4 to 1 vote. In addition, the School Superintendent will be invited to be part of the "oversight" team to include a member of the RAB, Recreation Director, Town Administrator, School Board member, and BoS member. I will represent the BoS with Joel Mudget as alternate.
