Minutes of February 8, 2011

Present: Christa Patterson, Roger Sweet, Eric White, Hilliare Wilder

Minutes of the December meeting were accepted as read.  There was no January meeting.

Eric met with the selectmen last month to submit the budget for 2011.  We will remain at the previous year’s amount of $1500.

Eric and surveyor, John Bridges located, marked and recorded the two lost points on the Sullivan Nelson town line last month.  The $100 fee for John’s time was split with Nelson.

Most all of the wildlife and bird viewing lists have been turned into Eric and he will compile the totals and put them in the next town newsletter.

Christa has talked with Amanda Costello from the Cheshire County Conservation Commission about hosting a talk on Town Agricultural Commissions.  A tentative date has been set for March 29th at 7:00 p.m. at the town hall.  Christa will send invitation letters to Sullivan’s farmers as well as farmers in surrounding towns.  She will also write an article in the next newsletter about the talk.  Nelson and Harrisville have each written warrant articles for the creation of an Agricultural Commission that will be voted on at their upcoming town meetings.

The Energy Committee met with selectmen again last month.  After answering questions about the maintenance for wood boilers the Selectmen have decided to accept the grant money to make improvements to the town garage.  Next the committee needs to write the RFPs.  Dennis Noonan spoke at the last meeting about his local business that designs and manufactures wind powered systems for both homes and businesses.

Meeting adjourned at 7:55 p.m.

Respectfully Submitted,

Eric White
