Board of Selectmen Minutes

Meeting began at 6:00 pm.  Present were Selectmen Cloutier and Stohl.  Selectman Campbell was absent.  Members of the public present:  William Schomburg and Tax Collector Garry Parkhurst.

Checks and manifests were reviewed and signed.

Mail was reviewed.

William Schomburg came to the meeting to discuss the purchase of the Lyman Falls property, which is currently owned by the Washburn Family.  The Vermont River Conservancy is applying to the Upper Connecticut River Mitigation and Enhancement Fund for a grant to help purchase the property.  They have written a letter of support which they would like the Board to sign.  A number of issues were discussed including:


1.                 What does “river corridor management” mean?  Does the plan handle picnic facilities, toilet facilities, etc.

2.                 The Board would like to receive a copy of the deeded “right of way”.  Mr. Schomburg will have then fax us a copy.

3.                 The Board is under the impression that all islands in the Connecticut River are owned by the State but this proposal seems to include the island.

4.                 What exactly is the correct lot size?  The proposal says 22 acres, however, the letter of support says 16 acres.

5.                  Mr. Schomburg believes that there is a January 10th deadline for submitting the proposal.  

Marcia will prepare the letter for Chairman Cloutier to sign once we have a copy of the deeded right of way and answers to our questions.   Mr. Schomburg left the meeting.

An Intent to Cut form was signed for Charles White.

A Class VI Road Liability Waiver was signed for a new property owner (Jeremy Ward) on South Jordan Hill Road.

Garry Parkhurst explained to the Board members the problems that we have been having with the furnace.  Today (Wednesday) it was 40 degrees when Marcia opened the office at 9:30.  It was decided to have Mike Andolina antifreeze the entire system and to purchase an anti-freeze alarm which would call three different telephone numbers until it is answered by an actual person.  Marcia said that she had found an alarm for around $170.00.  The Board gave permission for it to be purchased and decided that it will be programed to call Marcia, Chairman Cloutier and Mike Andolina.  Mr. Parkhurst will contact Mike and instruct him on what the Board wishes him to do.

Mail was reviewed.

The Board discussed the vote taken at the last meeting regarding a raise for the Planning Board's secretary.  Selectman Stohl said he had been thinking about it and he feels that it was out of the Board's jurisdiction.  The Planning Board hired Mrs. Campbell and matters regarding her salary should be handled by that Board.  On a motion made by Selectman Stohl and seconded by Selectman Cloutier, the Board voted to nullify that vote.  The Board instructed Marcia to write a letter to Planning Board Chairman Scott DeBlois explaining what action they had taken.  

On a motion made by Selectman Cloutier and seconded by Selectman Stohl, the Board approved the minutes of the December 12th meeting.

Meeting adjourned at 8:00 pm.

Respectfully submitted,
Marcia Parkhurst, Secretary
Board of Selectmen
