Approved Meeting Minutes Draft
August 27, 2012 – 7:30 PM
Sullivan Town Hall


Board members present: Mark Paquette, Gary Patnode

Department heads present:

Also present: Al Jones, Ron Robbins, Ron Hull, Mary Hull

A. CALL TO ORDER: Mark Paquette called the meeting to order at 7:30PM


Ron Robbins, Secretary of the Keene Snow Riders snow mobile club inquired about repairing the snowmobile trails on these class V1 roads, Corey Mine Road, Boynton Road and Gilsum Road. The club has been maintaining the trails for the past 3 years but because of the spring flood the roads have been washed out and need to be filled in.

Mark Paquette voiced concerns over whether or not the roads are still in town possession. The Town of Sullivan would not have a problem with repairs, however if the roads had been given back to the property owners (by a town vote), permission would need to be obtained from the property owners.

Al Jones spoke about his concerns with the most recent letter that went out from the Selectmen’s Office regarding the cleanup of his property. Mr. Jones estimated it would take three years to clean up his property, not the 30 days referenced in the letter.

Mark Paquette said that it was not expected that all of the cleanup would be accomplished within 30 days. Mark suggested that he start with cleaning up those areas that were most visible, such as the trailers that can be seen from Valley Road.

Gary Patnode said that even though they did not expect everything to be cleaned up in 30 days three years was not a realistic time frame and the Town expected to see cleanup work started within the month and continuing until it was accomplished. Gary asked Mr. Jones for a plan and advised that the Town would be monitoring his progress.
