Minutes of June 10, 2014

Sullivan Town Hall
June 10, 2014

Present: Roger Sweet, Eric White, Hilliare Wilder and Becky Cummings plus several townspeople.

Eric White gave a presentation of the remodeling project he did on an 1830’s brick house in Dover, NH.  Upon its completion the house was awarded ENERGY STAR certification which means it is well above standards of most homes in delivering energy efficiency.  In order to qualify the house had to undergo inspections, testing and verifications of the strict requirements set by the EPA.  Requirements include complete thermal enclosure, proper heating system, water management around the exterior and ENERGY STAR appliances.  

Eric took the old plaster down to the bricks to insulate, installed drainage around the foundation, replaced sills, added a new roof and windows, pointed up the bricks, leveled floors, replaced the bathroom and kitchen and more.  

Following the presentation a brief meeting was held.

Minutes of the May meeting were accepted as read.

Eric said Selectman, Laura Merrifield had contacted him concerning the land use tax.  Some money collected from previous land use changes had not been deposited in our account.  Two will be deposited shortly and another will be deposited when it is collected from the landowner.

She also said there are concerns with people volunteering for town projects because of town liability.  Other towns have implemented waiver forms for people to sign before embarking on such tasks as clean-up day.  She will let us know as she finds out more.

Meeting adjourned at 8:40 pm.

Respectfully Submitted,
Becky Cummings
