On a motion made by Selectman Campbell and seconded by Selectman Stohl the Board approved the minutes of the August 26, 2020 meeting.

A letter was received from Donahue, Tucker and Ciandella regarding the Eversource case.  Eversource is filing a case against several towns for the 2019 taxes.  The letter requests permission to accept service on our behalf and to add the 2019 tax case to our engagement letter.  The Board instructed Marcia to notify legal counsel that we were in agreement with both actions.

Selectman Campbell reminded the Board that there will be a dispatch meeting on Thursday, here at the Town Office, beginning at 5:30.

The MS-535 and MS-60W were received from Cohos Advisors, which the Board members reviewed.  Marci a will file these two forms with DRA.

Marcia informed the Board that assessor, Steve Allen, will be in the beginning of next week to print out the new assessment letters to be sent to all property owners.  Steve has requested an extension from DRA for the Town’s MS1.

The flag pole situation at the office was discussed.  Marcia will get in touch with Liberty Flagpole regarding the missing materials.

In the past, Marcia has put out bid requests for oil for the Town Office.  Since being out, this hasn’t been done.  The Board instructed Marcia to contact the oil companies directly and to purchase from the company with the lowest bid price.

Marcia will put a notice in the newspaper requesting bids for snowplowing both the Town Hall and the Town Office.  Bids will be opened at the next meeting.

A Warrant was signed for Excavation Tax for 2020.

The Board reviewed revenues received as of June 30, 2020 and gave Marcia updated numbers to be entered in the MS4 (Revised Estimated Revenues) which was due on September lst.

The Board discussed the former Bovill Gift Shop building.  Marcia was instructed to place an ad in the newspaper asking for bids for the building.  Bids must be received by October 13th.  Removal of the building will provide additional parking closer to the hall. 

Meeting adjourned at 7:55 pm.

Respectfully submitted,

Marcia Parkhurst, Secretary
