E. BOARD OF ASSESSORS
II. OLD BUSINESS
1 ATV Update Tammy Buswell reported that the placing of the signs is a grey area, and the cost is more than previously expected.
Also by investing into the cost of opening and posting these trails, there would still be no actual enforcement that could be used.
Consensus of the Board is to take this off the agenda until further notice.
2. Playground /Ballfield Lighting Neither Rec Director were present for an update, but Tammy will Contact Bethany Leighton and request that she get prices for lighting updates.
3. Loon Cove Plowing Consensus of the Board that after the intersection, the road is a private road in both directions and would require easements to continue to maintain.
The risk of damaging property and equipment is not worth it.
4. Sand/Salt Shed overhead door update. Leslie Merrill reported that Joe Gray had Coastal Doors put a new door in for a cost of approximately $7,000. The building is now secured and no longer at risk.
III. NEW BUSINESS
1.New Fire Proof Safe
Diane reported that the Safe is broken and we need to replace it asap.
ADDITIONAL: Diane requested to look into the cost and access of doing Zoom meetings on Selectmen’s Meetings.
This would allow the residents a way to attend that fear the public contact of the virus, and allow Board Members whom could not be physically present a way to attend.
Also a way for Diane to be present for questions when she cannot physically attend. Diane will research the cost and access.
