Pledge of Allegiance

The Chair announced the approval and signing of the manifests.

The Secretary said she had a correction on page 4, paragraph 3, line one, it says “Ridgewood” Drive and should say “Ridgeview” Drive. Selectman Moroney made a Motion to approve the minutes of June 4, 2018, as corrected. It was seconded by Selectman Mycko and passed unanimously.

The Board was asked to revise the capped amount for Welfare Assistance emergency housing when there is no space available in the shelters. It is currently at $65 per night and we have recently paid $109, including tax. Chairman Scalley made a Motion to: increase the cap to $125 per night. Selectman Moroney seconded and it passed unanimously. The amounts for oil, propane, etc. were briefly discussed but not raised as the Chairman said the Board has the prerogative to adjust those when necessary.

Selectman Moroney said the first meeting for the new Building Committee had been held on June 13. There were several people there who will be on the Committee and there are a number of others who were unable to attend that night but wish to be on it. Part of the discussions was if they felt the need to include professional services and when asked, Allan Clark said he would be willing to work with the Committee. The members were asked if they wished to do this, and all voted yes. Selectman Moroney said she would bring the request to the next Select Board meeting. After explaining all to the Board, Selectman Moroney made a Motion to: Hire Allan Clark and his professional services for the new Building Committee. Selectman Mycko seconded and it passed unanimously. Selectman Moroney advised the next meeting of the Building Committee will be on Thursday, June 28, at 9 a.m. at the Town Hall.

The following was approved and signed:

Water Warrant – Gilman
Water Warrant – Monahan; Quirk-Bessette

Follow Up:

Little River Property Abutters -- The Secretary said the day after the last meeting she
called DES and was told they (DES) are only allowed to work with municipalities and their
Officials. The gentleman she spoke with said he had advised that the landowner must hire
a private engineering firm to work on their behalf. If the Town were to give authority for
DES to work with a private landowner, it would have to be under certain circumstances
and the Town would have to assume financial responsibility, which they are not allowed to
do. The Board asked the Secretary to write a letter to the landowner for the Chairman to
sign, to say that we cannot request that DES work directly with them. Chairman Scalley
made a Motion that: He sign the letter when it is ready. Selectman Moroney seconded and
it passed unanimously.
Gravel Pit—Shooting – Chairman Scalley said he had spoken with Jack Catalano about the
Board having given the Police Department permission to use the gravel pit on a very
limited basis, for practice and qualifying. Mr. Catalano said it has been good and this
would be all right as long as it’s not constant. Jeremy Oleson said he feels it should be
open for townspeople and Chairman Scalley asked how we would police that. Chief
Oleson responded with a key in different locations and suggested it could be fashioned
after the way his Department issues Fire Permits with restrictions on time and days; and in
this case, not on weekends. It was suggested that we check with Legal on making
allowances/options. Greg Hogan said that while it might be nice, he’s not sure that it’s the
Town’s responsibility to provide property owners or anyone with a place to shoot. It was
brought up that a number of years ago the suggestion was made to designate a place on the
Transfer Station property. John Warren, who currently works at the Transfer
Station/Recycling Center, said he had no problem with a range but he said not in the
center of town which happens to be a tourist town. He thought it might be good out there
where there is a lot of land and no one living there. During further discussion, Greg
Hogan said they could put in berms. He said they have a lot of used road sand that they
can’t do anything with anyway which could be used for that. Jeremy Oleson said we
could look at Londonderry as they have done something similar. Selectman Moroney
suggested that we table this and let Greg and Jeremy do some research and get some
answers. The thought is maybe they could do something with set hours and days.



Building Inspector/Building Permit/Fee Structure – Selectman Moroney said they need to
have time to go over what has been done, what needs to be done, etc. Then they will be
able to work on getting someone in to talk with about taking over as the Building
Inspector. She said the Planning Board is meeting on Tuesday, July 24, and as all or
most of the Select Board will be there, she suggested to save having to go out yet another
night, that they have a working meeting at 6 p.m. prior the Planning Board. As stated, this
will be a workshop and though it will be open to the public, it will not necessarily be open
to public participation. This workshop will be posted.

Other:

Selectman Moroney said she knows they are no longer going to try to build an office for the Planning and Zoning secretary but feels there are a lot of materials that should be locked up. Therefore, the Board asked that Greg Hogan put up a wall in the front hall with a door to lock.
He said he will work on that.

Greg Hogan said he wanted to clarify what he meant when he said the town doesn’t have the responsibility to provide for shooting. He said it’s a privilege and maybe if something can be done, this time people will respect it with regards to noise and trash.

Mr. Hogan advised the Board that they had a complaint about how the Transfer Station charged for construction debris. Apparently, someone called Concord, rather than going directly to the Transfer Station. A person came up and looked around and talked with them and gave them some ideas. That person said it’s not uncommon as most small towns can’t charge by weight as they don’t have scales because of the costs. Mr. Hogan went on to say that the guys have been doing it long enough so they don’t have to take out their tape measures every time; they know about what a pick-up truck will hold and can get a good estimate that way. He said if anything, any discrepancy has been in the customer’s favor, as they prefer to err on the side of the customer. However, from now on, they WILL be using yardsticks and tapes and they WILL be very careful about measuring – the charge is $54 per cubic yard and that is what they will pay. When asked, both Mr. Hogan and Mr. Warren said hazardous waste is not allowed at all. They noted that they have suggested a few times that people are welcome to go to Casella on Trudeau Road where they do have scales.

Lastly, Mr. Hogan spoke of properties that the Town has taken over and asked what he can or should do. In one particular case, he believes there is a danger with part of a roof that may be close to falling and the Board agreed that he could take care of things like that. He should be sure to give the Tax Collector time and materials sheets. It was also suggested that he might post “no trespassing” signs an all sides of the building.

As there was no further business, the Board was polled and went into non-public session, per RSA 91-A-3 for legal and personnel at 7:49 p.m. Chairman Scalley, yes; Selectman Mycko, yes; Selectman Moroney, yes.

At the close of non-public session at 8:53 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.

Chairman Scalley said the next meeting will be Monday, July 2, 2018.

There being no further discussion, Selectman Moroney made a Motion to adjourn the meeting. Selectman Mycko seconded and the Motion passed unanimously. Chairman Scalley declared the meeting ended at 8:55 p.m.
