Pledge of Allegiance

The Board announced the approval of bills and signing of manifests.

Selectman Scalley made a Motion to: Accept and approve the minutes of 06/19/2017 as written. Selectman Bussiere seconded and the Motion passed unanimously.

Jay McCusker spoke as a member of the Mount Washington Regional Airport Commission. He stated the airport itself is owned by the Town of Whitefield however, it is operated by the Commission. McCusker spoke to the Selectmen about once again joining the Inter-Municipal Agreement. Five towns which currently participate which are: Whitefield, Lancaster, Dalton, Littleton and Sugar Hill. The Commission would like to promote the economic aspect of the airport such as charter planes and guests who arrive to the Mt. Washington Hotel via the airport. The Commission would like to work on filling voids like the need for car rentals direct from the airport for arriving guests. The Town of Carroll’s share to be part of the Commission would be roughly $1,100 and the price is based on per capita. The Town would have the ability to appoint its own Commissioner.

In order to join the Commission, it has to be by Town Vote to accept the Inter-Municipal Agreement. McCusker said he wanted to get the word out and to let people know that the Commission meets the second and last Thursdays of the month at 6:30 p.m. at the airport terminal.

Imre Szauter, Chair of the Building Committee, advised the Board of the last meetings. On June 22, 2017 the Board met to prep for the evening Information Session (second.) Also discussed was an explanation of the process being followed by Allan Clark, the need for Committee expansion as well as space sizes for the community room, Library and Historical Society. The Second Informational Session was held that evening which resulted in gaining a new Committee Member. A second member joined after receiving information at the Fire Dept. pancake breakfast. As of July 3, with received and expected invoices, the anticipated budget balance is $1,948. The next regular meeting will be Thursday, July 27 at 9:00 a.m. at the Town Hall.

Selectman Scalley made a motion for the Selectmen to come in and sign abatements if needed when Becki gets them finalized. The Motion was seconded by Chairman Mycko and passed unanimously.

Other:

Selectman Scalley said he spoke with the Town Treasurer. She has been speaking with Bank of NH about CD rates. She is still very cautious about credit cards and wanted to reiterate that we should have a strict policy for them.

Follow-Up Items:

Bldg Permit Application and Process including Fees – Nothing new. Still waiting for documentation.

Ron Wareing spoke and asked where the regulations show that when you get a Certificate of Occupancy that a building permit ends? He said he got a C.O. so a building could be occupied but he wasn’t finished. He believes his last permit is still good. Selectman Scalley said it’s been our past practice and will continue to be until we straighten out documentation in March. Sherry Wareing said it needs to be in writing and it’s not documented anywhere. Selectman Scalley said you need a way to close out a building permit and a C.O. establishes that.

Wareing stated another issue is that the Building Inspector told him he needs to pull a building permit for each building that will have work done to it. He has 7 buildings and at $200 a permit it is $1,400 in permit costs for a few thousand dollars worth of improvements. Selectman Scalley told him he’s multi-use: residential, commercial and hostel. They have different uses of occupancy. Discussion continued and Selectman Bussiere said the Building Inspector has discretion and deferred to the Building Inspector. Selectman Scalley said he doesn’t want to make a decision that sets precedence for everyone. All agreed to a meeting that will be scheduled between Ron Wareing, the Fire Chief and the Building Inspector.

The Fire Chief stated that in general, commercial buildings need to come in with an itemized specific plan. Selectman Scalley stated that a lot of time is being spent on permits. We need to get fees in line as well to cover the costs.

The next meeting is Monday, July 17, 2017.

There being no further discussion, Selectman Bussiere made a Motion to adjourn the meeting. Selectman Scalley seconded and the Motion passed unanimously. Chairman Mycko declared the meeting ended at 8:21 p.m.
