Marcia informed the Board that she had received a phone call from Donna Jordan with the Great North Woods Center for the Arts.  Mrs. Jordan was inquiring if the Town had a policy regarding people bringing alcohol when attending an outside concert at the Center.  Mrs. Jordan said she had contacted the State Liquor Commissioner who said they have no problems with it but suggested that she contact the Town.  Mrs. Jordan said that they are not going to advertise the fact or sell any alcohol but that some people

may attend the concerts and bring along a picnic lunch with wine, etc.  After discussion, the Board instructed Marcia to call Mrs. Jordan and tell her that the Town has nothing against it.

Mrs. Jordan was also inquiring if the Town would be abating the first installment of the 2022 property taxes as they had done in the past.  After discussion, the Board voted to abate the amount of $3,476.00 for the property taxes of the GNWCA.
