Pledge of Allegiance

The Chair announced the approval and signing of the manifests.

Selectman Moroney made a Motion to approve the minutes of July 2, 2018 and seconded by Selectman Mycko. The Motion passed unanimously.

Russ Wheeler and Kathy Wheeler introduced themselves to the Board. Mr. Wheeler explained they are seeking permission to park their camper on their property and live in it until October while their house is being built. It was noted they will use Ammonoosuc Campground for their septic and they will bring in a receipt to that affect. After brief discussion and confirmation with the Town Clerk that it would be acceptable for registering their vehicle (and as it will be their fulltime residence address), the Board agreed they could live in their camper until October when they move into their house.

Imre Szauter reported on the Building Committee, 2019, and said they had not met since his last report on July 2, however, they have a meeting scheduled for Thursday, July 19. This is an evening meeting which will hopefully allow other/more people to attend. He noted they have not yet spent any of the $25,000 allocated by the Select Board for their work. Mr. Szauter said the focus of their next meeting will be to create a task list with potential due dates and Member involvement. They will also seek additional input from the public on effective ways to reach the community to show the need for the new facilities. He noted that Allan Clark suggested the need to be prepared to deliver a powerful message at the Deliberative Session in February, as the 5-week period between then and the vote will be critical for building momentum for passing the article. He reiterated the next meeting is on Thursday, July 19, at 7 p.m. and all are very welcome. The Board thanked Mr. Szauter for his report and time.

Chairman Scalley said as a result of the fire at Rosebrook in December, the Fire Chief shut down the use of all fireplaces in those units. Many of the owners for unhappy for a variety of reasons including that they enjoyed and liked having their fireplaces as well as an expense that they had not planned on and felt was unnecessary. Mrs. Marchese-Spiller, who with her husband, owns one of the units was one of the disappointed people; however, when their fireplace was dismantled to be replaced with a gas unit, they were astounded to find there was a substantial amount of charring behind the boards. After seeing the damage, they were so glad they were required to do so and sent pictures to show why they felt they were on their way to potentially having a fire as well. They greatly appreciate the care and concern exhibited by Chief Oleson and the Town.

The Town received correspondence about joining a class action suit regarding Payment in Lieu of Taxes on Federal Government Forest Lands. The suit claims the Government did not pay the amount they should have paid in 2015, 2016 or in 2017. As joining this will not cost the Town any money and we may get a little something out of it – albeit in twenty or thirty years as Selectman Moroney said – Selectman Moroney made a Motion To: Move forward and join this suit. Selectman Mycko seconded and it passed unanimously. Chairman Scalley will stop in the Office to sign the paperwork during the week.

The following was approved and signed:

Driveway-E911-Mapping Permit – T. Foster
Yield Tax Certification and Warrant – Simonelli
Water Warrant – Various Owner Changes

Follow Up:

School Street Culvert – Chairman Scalley said he met with FEMA reps last Wednesday and it is their recommendation to re-evaluate to go back to the pre-existing condition as they would most likely reimburse for the complete cost rather than just a percentage to “fix” the problem. They are to get back in touch with the Chairman after which he should know a plan for moving forward.
Building Inspector/Building Permit/Fee Structure – Chairman Scalley said the workshop is scheduled for July 24th at 6 p.m. He noted it is open to the public but there will not necessarily be input or participation.


Chief Trammell told the Board that the survivor of the fatal motorcycle accident on Rt. 302 E
a year ago, had been in touch with him and is planning to come back for a visit. She wants to thank the Police and EMS for all that they did for her -- her partner was killed and she spent nine months in a hospital in Florida and feels she’s alive because of them.

Chairman Scalley said the next meeting would be July 30, 2018 at 7 p.m.

As there was no further business, the Board was polled and went into non-public session, per RSA 91-A-3 for personnel at 7:19 p.m. Chairman Scalley, yes; Selectman Mycko, yes; Selectman Moroney, yes.

At the close of non-public session at 8:39 p.m., Selectman Moroney moved to return to public session and seal the minutes from non-public session. Selectman Mycko seconded and the Motion passed unanimously.
