Town of Sullivan, N.H. Board of Selectmen

Approved Meeting Minutes

October 31, 2011 – 7:30 PM

Sullivan Town Hall

Board members present: Bob Thayer, Mark Paquette

Department heads present: Randy Smith

Also present: Karen Luebkeman, Administrative Assistant

A. CALL TO ORDER: Bob Thayer opened the meeting at 7:33


Dan Ketola brought in paperwork for building permits.

John Jay Prior and Jennifer Labadie, members of the School Committee

attended the Selectmen’s Meeting for the purpose of updating the board

on the information they had compiled regarding options for Sullivan students.

Options range from continuing with MSRD; withdrawing and forming a new

school district with Gilsum; sending to students to Harrisville for elementary education and to Keene for Junior and Senior High School, or sending Sullivan

students to Keene for Elementary, Junior and Senior High School.

The committee does not feel that Sullivan students are receiving a quality

education at MSRD, but based on information that has been compiled to date

the three alternatives available would point to an increased cost for the Town.

Richard Hotchkiss requested that the committee continue to look at the projected

costs for the three options to develop a more accurate figure and to create a report that would be used to make this information available to the citizens of Sullivan in order to allow the Town to decide on how to proceed.


Meeting was adjourned by agreement at 9:35 PM.

Respectfully Submitted,

Karen B. Luebkeman,

Administrative Assistant, Town of Sullivan
