III. NEW BUSINESS
1.Lyman Frost / Water/Culvert/Ditching concerns.
Lyman Frost was present and informed the board that he has done some research of the Lapoint Road. The road was laid out in 1851 and was built in 3 sections. Some sections are 3 rod, and some are 4 rod. The neighbors culvert in question has been covered. Mr. Frost pointed out the emergency of the situation, as he cannot get propane or any type of delivery or even an emergency vehicle in if needed when the weather creates it impassable.
Although all (the Board and Road Commissioner) agree that the work and culvert being covered on the neighbors land has created the issues:
Con census of the Board was to talk with the neighbor, and to offer Mr. Frost the assistance from the town to put a culvert in of his own to help defuse the water.
Don Carroll attempted to talk to the neighbor, but he was not home, Don will continue to try and reach him.
