  1. CALL
    TO ORDER: Chairman Gary Patnode called the meeting to order at 6:30

    November 24, 2014, regular meeting and the non- public meeting of

  1. DEPARTMENT
    HEADS:

  1. SELECTMEN’S
    BUSINESS:

  1. Discussion
    ensued regarding the newly installed Price Road Snowmobile bridge.
    The Road Agent and Conservation Commission had previously voiced
    their concerns regarding the possible impediment to the water flow
    in the event of a flood or spring thaw. Mrs. Merrifield had taken
    several pictures of the bridge and forwarded them to the Wetlands
    Bureau. The response from Jen Drociak indicated the newly
    constructed bridge is out of the Wetlands jurisdiction, would not
    require a permit and based on a view of the pictures, no violation
    had occurred. The Board agreed to contact Ron Robbins from the
    snowmobile club to invite him to a future meeting with the BOS, the
    Road Agent and a representative from the Conservation Commission.

  1. The
    Board reviewed additional information from Avitar pertaining to the
    ratio study. Mrs. Merrifield will be contacting Loren Martin at
    Avitar with a couple of questions.

  1. Payroll
    and vendor payments were reviewed and approved.

  1. Mrs.
    Merrifield reported a representative from Municipal Resources had
    reported to the Town offices today to being an analysis of
    administrative work to assist the Board in determining what changes,
    if any, are necessary to alleviate some of the work load from the
    administrative assistant’s position. The analysis cost is $75.00
    per hour plus mileage.

General
discussion ensued. The Board reviewed an expense report prepared by
the Administrative Assistant as well as BOS/Department Head budget
