Stacey Campbell entered the meeting at 6:00 pm. Mrs. Campbell was looking for permission from the Board to use the Town Hall parking lot for a Methodist Church Yard sale on May 5th & 6th. She explained that the church was hoping that if they had more “public exposure” that they would do better on their fundraiser. Selectman Stohl stated that he had no problem with the group using the parking lot but that he would rather they use the hall itself. After discussion, the Board voted to let the group use the hall with the understanding that the property must be cleaned and returned to its present condition when done.
