- The purpose of the 4pm session was to define a broad scope for a potential gym facility so that potential cost and funding possibilities could be determined. For those of you that have been following this evolution, this was agreed to be a necessary step before we can decide if we want to place an article on the warrant. The presentation made to the BoS back in June can be found here. The summary report can be found here.
- The Tri-Town Milfoil Committee was officially dissolved, and a check in the amount of $18,489.46 was received as retained revenue and was deposited in the General Fund. It will be added to the appropriation for the milfoil account on next years budget.
- The BoS approved acceptance of $15,000 in private donations from the Lees Pond Association to be held in escrow for the Conservation Commission for the potential purchase of the Lees Pond Preserve
- Ginny Gassman was appointed as an alternate to the Library Board of Trustees.
- Certificates of appreciation and gift certificates to a local restaurant were presented to Scott Kinmond in recognition of his service as Administrative Liaison and to Carol Granfield as Interim TA.
- A reminder to the public that our new TA, Walter Johnson, will begin next week and there will be an informal meet and greet at Town Hall at 6:15pm next Thursday prior to our 7pm business meeting.
- A proclamation was read honoring Paralyzed Veterans of America Day on September 12th. Former Selectmen Joel Mudget was present and spoke of the annual bass fishing event to be held on September 12th at Camp Robindel for paralyzed veterans. It was my honor to represent the BoS and present the proclamation at the dinner banquet last year and it is my pleasure to do so again this year.
