Mail was reviewed. 

Checks and manifests were reviewed and signed.

A Land Use Change Tax Warrant in the amount of $5,120.00 was reviewed and signed.

A Property Tax Warrant for the lst installment of the 2021 taxes was signed in the amount of $720,886.00.

An e-mail was received from Steve LaFrance regarding the Lyman Falls project.  Mr. LaFrance requested that one of the Selectmen attend the meeting on June 3rd at 10:00.  Selectman Cloutier will attend.

An e-mail from Allen Coats (Stewartstown) was received and it was noted that the Stewartstown Board had voted to purchase the new trash container that Ben Champagne had given the Town a quote for.  The Board instructed Marcia to contact Barry Normandeau to see if he could help us find something cheaper.

On a motion made by Selectman Stohl and seconded by Selectman Cloutier, the Board approved the minutes of the May 12, 2021 meeting.

A letter was received from Attorney Jon Frizzell regarding back taxes owed by Michael Robinson.  Mr. Frizzell was requesting that the Board abate some of the interest if Mr. Robinson pays the taxes in full.  After discussion, the Board instructed Marcia to contact Attorney Frizzell and tell him that they would abate the current interest but not any that has already been paid.

Driveway permits were reviewed and approved for Emery (Perry Road) and Stafanski (Bungy Road).

Marcia informed the Board that the contracts with Lemington and Stewartstown for the Transfer Station will expire on July 31, 2021.  Marcia will contact both of the Towns to see if they have any items that they feel should be discussed and/or changed.

Selectman Campbell gave each Board member a copy of the current Dispatch Center agreement.  The agreement is due to expire in March, 2022.  The committee is looking for any changes/corrections that need to be made.  Selectman Campbell also discussed with the other Board members current issues at the Dispatch Center such as staffing, pay, etc.

Marcia gave the Board members a Payment Agreement she had prepared for Kim Carter.  After discussion and some changes, the Board signed the Agreement.  Marcia will forward it to Ms. Carter for her signature.

The Board members reviewed bids received from Dorman Construction and Central Paving for paving sections of Titus Hill Road and Meridan Hill Road.  Bids were received as follows:

                                    Titus Hill                       Meridan Hill

Dorman                       $94,752.00                  $59,470.00

Central                         $37.463.58                  $52,330.40

Since there was such a discrepancy between the bids for Titus Hill, Selectman Cloutier is going to contact Central Paving to see if they had included all sections

Meeting adjourned at 7:50 pm.

Respectfully submitted,

Marcia Parkhurst, Secretary
