  1. PUBLIC
    SESSION:

Peggy
and Keith Martin attended the Selectmen’s Meeting to express their
concerns with
the
Sullivan School Board’s decision to list the Sullivan School
property with Masiello Realty which they feel is a conflict of
interest due to Stephanie Jacques Kleines’ affiliation with the
firm. They also feel that the asking price is not realistic and
should be lowered in order to get it sold as quickly as possible.

Hazard Mitigation proposal submitted by K.A. Stevens&Son for
the Ferry

Brook
Bridge project was reviewed. Road Agent Randy Smith has reviewed the

contract

done.

The

agreed that a Release of Lien from all contractors/suppliers on the

would be needed to protect the Town of Sullivan. The Administrative
Assistant
will advise K. A. Stevens & Son that a Release of Lien will be
needed from all contractors/suppliers prior to issuing the final
payment.

Otterbrook
Construction’s verbal estimate to install a crash bar on one of the

be submitted by the contractor for future deliberation

this discussion at the next Selectmen’s Meeting.
