The Secretary told the Board she had started the process for a town credit card and said she needed to know who would be holding the cards. She reminded the Board that the Bank Manager had said it was preferred to have cards with individual names on them rather than just the name of the town with a list authorizing usage as this hinders fraud substantially. Michael Hogan commented the Army handled credit cards that way and it was a good system. After discussion about who will have the cards and the limit amount, Selectman Mycko suggested that credit cards should be issued for the Fire Chief, Police Chief, Public Works Director and the Selectmen’s Office with a limit of $2,500. Chairman Bussiere said he would make it a Motion and that we also write a Policy for Credit Cards. Selectman Mycko seconded and the Motion passed.

The Secretary said that the town community relations rep from Eversource had stopped by and during the conversation the subject of street lighting as well as the possibility of a new building came up. She said this year would be a good year to work on projects that might qualify for grants or other financial awards as Eversource would have a substantial amount of money in 2018 for those purposes. Michael Hogan who has spoken several times about the cost of lighting in town said he would be interested in seeing a town agreement if there is one in existence and the Secretary said she would ask about that. Mr. Hogan said he would like to have a meeting with her at a later time and the Secretary will also impart that. Imre Szauter, Chairman of the Building Committee also expressed interest in meeting, but felt it would be better to wait until after voting in March. Mr. Szauter noted that the money may be available because of the Northern Pass project and just felt people should know that. He said the Lancaster project which has been spoken of previously was paid for by Forward New Hampshire, which is part of Northern Pass.

The Secretary asked that the Board table the Northpoint Engineering, LLC Agreement for monitoring the old landfill as Greg Hogan wanted to look into it a bit more.

The following items were approved and signed:

Auditor Option – NH DRA
Commerford Nieder Perkins, LLC Revised Update Contract – DRA DRA had some minor
changes they wanted made after their review.
2017 Ambulance Agreement – Coos County It was noted this is for $7,000.
Water Warrant – Messina

Other:

Selectman Mycko said there was a tree down on Little River Road and wanted to call it to Greg’s attention. He said there was a light out also and Greg said they had taken care of the tree and he would look into the light. It was noted that Selectman Mycko and Greg plan to review town lighting hopefully in the near future.

The Secretary told the Board she would be posting a meeting following the Deliberative Session on February 8, 2017, in case anything came up at the Session that needed their attention. She asked if they would also want a meeting on February 6, which would be the next date. They concurred a meeting on February 8, would be sufficient, so Chairman Bussiere announced that date as the next Selectmen’s meeting.

The Secretary spoke about the town sign near the gazebo and the train and asked about putting the meetings on it. Greg Hogan said he would take care of that, so the Informational Meeting on January 31 will be put on and after that date, it will be changed for the Deliberative Session.

Follow-Up Items:

Water Policy Revision: The Secretary said as far as she knows, that is currently between Kelly
and legal review.
Town Hall/Gym Update: It was noted that the Town Hall is totally off the big boiler now as the
water that needed being turned off and drained as well as the piping for heat in the kitchen
have been completed.

There being no further discussion, Chairman Bussiere made a Motion to adjourn the meeting. Selectman Mycko seconded and the Motion passed unanimously. Chairman Bussiere declared the meeting ended at 7:55 p.m. The next Selectmen’s meeting will be Wednesday, February 8 2017, at following the Deliberative Session.
