The Board asked Marcia to have Town Treasurer Jennifer Wells attend the next meeting on May 10th.
Marcia mentioned to the Board that the stain on the exterior of the Town Office is pealing in several locations and that the building needs to be pressure washed.
Marcia gave the Board members a copy of an e-mail sent to the Town on behalf of Harold Rist. The e-mail stated that Mr. Rist was interested in
paying all the back taxes, etc in order for the Town to deed the property back to him. After discussion, the Board instructed Marcia to have Mr. Rist send an explanation as to why it has been four years since he contacted the Town. They would like the explanation to be notarized. Also the Board was interested in what sort of a payment arrangement he is talking about. Marcia will respond to the e-mail.
