Board of Selectmen Minutes

Meeting began at 6:02 pm.  Present were Selectmen Cloutier, Stohl and Campbell.

Bob Baker entered the meeting at 6:00 pm to discuss the following subjects:

  1. Rail to Trail project.  Where does the project stand?  Baker suggested re-activating the Conservation Commission and enlist their help in this project.
  2. Littering Ordinance – Mr. Baker offered to draft an Ordinance for the Town. The Board felt that this wouldn’t really accomplish anything since there is no one to enforce it.  Baker showed the Board pictures of two sites on Meridan Hill that have become “dumping” sites.

Mr. Baker left the meeting at 6:35 pm.

Kim Carter and Tarrah Taylor entered the meeting at 6:37 pm.  Ms. Carter came to the meeting at the request of the Board to discuss her unpaid property taxes.  After discussion, it was decided that Ms. Carter will notify the Town by May 15th with information on what is taking place with her situation.  Ms. Carter and Ms. Taylor left the meeting.

An Intent to Cut was approved for Daniel Klebe.

Marcia informed the Board that she had contacted CAI regarding the tax maps on the Town’s website.  There was a computer glitch that was happening and they say they have it fixed.
