Sedgwick-Brooksville Town Landing Committee Minutes for December 10, 2020

Meeting opened at 5:30pm. Adjourned at 5:58pm. Members present: Michael Sheahan, Ben Astbury, Robert Publicover, John Gray, Hal Snow

Actions Taken:

Motion to accept minutes of the November 12th meeting. All in favor.


Stick Sturtevant contacted Bob Publicover about vandalism and encroachment on their property abutting the town landing property.

John Gray: We may have to put a fence demarcating the boundary where there’s a path leading to the Sturtevant’s property.

Bob: Would that need DEP approval?

Ben: Yes, should check with DEP about any fence placement.

John: Check with landowner about options including fence or sign or both.

Ben: Will call John Cullen about discussion with Sturtevants.

Ben heard from MMA about vandalism. Did not meet the $1000 deductible so claim was denied. Ben checked with Orland about their handling of dam and fishway. Water level is controlled by a dam upstream. Chair of fish committee, Peter Robshaw, takes care of fishway and monitors waterflow. Someone should talk to Peter Robshaw about monitoring process. John Gray will contact Brooksville’s fish committee member, Eugene Lymeburner, about calling Peter Robshaw for information.

Ben: Talked to Jeff Bunt about roadside trimming.

Next meeting will be in April unless an issue arises that needs attention.
