Meeting began at 6:00 pm.  Present were Selectmen Cloutier, Stohl and Campbell.

Mail was reviewed.

Checks and manifests were signed.

On a motion made by Selectman Campbell and seconded by Selectman Cloutier, the Board approved the minutes of the September 14, 2022 meeting.

Marcia told the Board that she had received a complaint about brush hanging down in the Lyman Cemetery.  Selectman Campbell said he would take a look at it.

Marcia informed the Board that she had placed an ad in the newspaper for the weeks of October 5th & 12th advertising for bids for snowplowing the Town Office and Town Hall.  Bids need to be received by Wednesday, October 12th and the Board can open them that night.

The Board reviewed and signed the MS-535 prepared by Cohos Advisors.

The Board reviewed and signed the MS-1.  Marcia told the Board that this is the last form to be submitted for this year.  Probably by the end of the month, the State will be ready to set our tax rate.

Marcia asked if anyone had viewed the location for a proposed driveway for Albion Herres.  Selectman Cloutier said he would take a look at it.

The Board reviewed draft paperwork prepared by Attorney Frizzell in order to file an “interpleader” in the property that the Town sold last year to Duncan Cullman.  The Board instructed Marcia to tell Attorney Frizzell to go forward with it.

The Board discussed the Summer Road budget.  As of tonight, we have spent approximately $77,000 out of the total amount of $205,000.00.  Selectman Cloutier said that the paving should be done shortly and that will be approximately $100,000.00.

At the next meeting (October 12th) a woman named Sue Ford will be coming to the meeting to present the Board with a Civil War chest which belonged to her Great Great Grandfather who was originally from Columbia.  Marcia informed the Board that she had notified both newspapers and that it looks like they will both be attending to take pictures.

Marcia reminded the Board that she will be out of the office on October 17th through 21st.  A notice will be in the newspaper for the next couple of weeks and letters will be sent to all of the people who have October registrations.

Selectman Campbell discussed maintenance issues to be taken care of at the Transfer Station.

Meeting adjourned at 7:30 pm.

Respectfully submitted,

Marcia Parkhurst, Secretary
