V. PUBLIC COMMENTS
Rita Albee stated concerns dealing with the “bump” signs on Rte 143.
Jeannie McAlpine requested the Board allow a “walking group” to walk in the office and community room during regular office hours.
(Consensus of the Board was to allow. Brent Dorman stated maybe this could be part of Parks and Rec so that the use does not have to be paid for.
Jeannie also offered to look into the recycling options that the town may have.
Jody Lyford question why the food cupboard was not allowed a key to the building to have chairs brought in.
Diane explained that the board directed her that keys have to be logged out when the community room is rented;
otherwise things are to be done during regular office hours or ask a board member or staff to let them in.
Jody stated that no one in the town wants to get involved and help because of the rules and regulations.
Brenda Clark stated that there are community members that do get involved such as dinners for veterans and hunter breakfast every year.
V. SELECTMEN COMMENTS
