A. Henry presented a copy of the dept of labor’s safety summary for 2011 for filing in the selectmen’s office.


Randy Smith brought up the issue of the town generator. A. Henry indicated the concrete slab will be recycled from sidewalk in Keene. R. Smith said ideally the pad should be located away from the part of the town hall which might be used for sleeping quarters in an emergency.


R. Smith brought up the railings along the handicap entrance to town hall. R. Hotchkiss will produce a sketch of the necessary railings and solicit quotes on the work. Additional landscaping will need to be performed as well.
