Other:

Selectman Moroney announced that the Budget Committee will meet January 6 to go over warrants, additional changes to revenue etc. The Public Meeting will be January 13 at 7 p.m. and will continue to January 14 at 7 p.m. if needed.



Chairman Scalley put forth the following Warrant Article: “To see if the Town will vote to raise and appropriate the sum of $15,000 (Fifteen Thousand Dollars). Said monies shall be used to pay for a detailed design and engineering plan for the renovation of the Twin Mountain Town Hall, Twin Mountain Fire Department and Twin Mountain Police Complex located at 92 School Street. The total amount to be taken from the New Land & Building Capital Reserve fund. No new money will be raised from new taxation." Chairman Scalley said there was a typo and it shouldn’t say renovation, it should say new complex. Selectman Moroney said we’ve already paid for a design to be done. Suggestions were made to correct the name from Twin Mountain to Carroll and better define the location as the wording is confusing. Chairman Scalley said he would re-write the article and submit again. Selectman Moroney repeated that there are already designs and engineering plans and doesn’t believe it needs to be done again. Chairman Scalley tabled the discussion until it’s rewritten.

The next meeting will be January 4, 2016 at 7 p.m.
