Pledge of Allegiance

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

Selectman Scalley made a Motion to: Approve the minutes of 2/13/2017 as written. Selectman Mycko seconded and the Motion passed.

Jeremy Oleson, Fire Chief and Chief of EMS, advised the Board that his Department had been invited to represent the area and state by the National Registry of EMT’s for an all-expenses paid trip to Columbus, Ohio, March 21 to 23. Chief Oleson said he has asked Deputy Chief of EMS, Brad Houston, to attend. With his extensive background as a Paramedic, Chief Oleson said he is the best to speak for New Hampshire and for the Emergency Responder level at the round table discussions. Chief Oleson said being chosen for this is quite an honor on the national level as well as the local level.

Chief Oleson also advised the Board that he had been awarded a Homeland Security grant for $6,000 for active shooter equipment; i.e. body armor, materials, and supplies. As he was not aware of this prior to budget time, he wanted the Selectmen to know that he may overspend a line by $6,000, but this will be reimbursed to the Town.

Greg Hogan told the Selectmen that the orange truck he’s been driving is in need of repairs for which he has been given an estimate of $2,000. He said it’s really seen better days and was a good vehicle for what they needed. When they bought it there were 160,000 miles on it and it now has 240,000. Having the smaller truck has paid off as it gets better gas mileage, and has saved huge wear and tear as well as mileage on the big F550. The result of this also, is that we are able to keep the bigger truck well maintained and in great condition. Mr. Hogan said he has been looking around and has found a truck that seems to be in very good condition and should have great mileage. The asking price is $4,000 and it books for more than $6,000. He said he has enough in his Vehicle Repair line to cover the expense and asked permission to buy the truck. Selectman Scalley made a Motion: To approve that Greg can purchase a used truck up for up to $4,000. Selectman Mycko seconded and the Motion passed unanimously.

The Secretary said she had received a telephone call regarding turning off a street light on Paquette Drive. The person at 78 Paquette Drive said it’s too bright and shines right in her windows and she said that having it is not necessary. She said she told the person she would bring it up at the Selectmen’s meeting that night. They said to advise that they are taking this request under advisement and will look into it.

The following item was approved and signed:

Oath of Office – Imre Szauter, Assistant Moderator

Other:

The Secretary spoke about adding a tab on the town website for the Building Committee. This can be done for a one-time fee of $75 and the Board agreed. Selectman Scalley asked if this is per-addition fee or if he had two other tabs would it cover all three. The Secretary was not sure and said she would be happy to check on it. In the meantime, if the one fee of $75 would not cover all additional tabs, to go ahead and add the one for the Building Committee.

Selectman Scalley said he made a mistake on February 8, when he made the motions to approve the minutes of January 23, and January 26. He said he should not have done so, as he was not at either meeting.

The question was asked if all employees had signed for the Employee Manual. The Secretary said she thought they had, but will check.

Selectman Scalley asked if the Planning Board had nominated anyone as the Town Representative for North Country Council and was told nothing had come to the Board.

Selectman Scalley also asked about a Certificate of Occupancy for a property on Paquette Circle. This will be researched.

Chief Oleson announced he is looking at getting an EMR class set up for the end of April into May. He said it would probably be about 48 hours with some on-line class and more than likely would be Tuesdays and Wednesdays with one Saturday class. He also said requirements on continuing education are less than previously as they are becoming more streamlined. It was noted that getting involved with the Department is a good way to help the Town.


Follow-Up Items:

Town Credit Cards: In process. The Secretary said she would be going to the bank soon with
the paperwork.
Meeting with Eversource Community Relations Specialist: Waiting to hear back about setting
up a meeting with Building Committee and perhaps Select Board.
Water Policy Revision: None of the Selectmen had an opportunity to review for the information,
but will do so for the next meeting.

The Board was polled to go into non-public session, per RSA 91-A-3 for legal at 7:36 p.m. Chairman Bussiere, yes; Selectman Scalley, yes; Selectman Mycko, yes.

At the close of non-public session at 8:15 p.m., Selectman Scalley moved to return to public session and seal the minutes from non-public session. Selectman Mycko seconded and the Motion passed.
