Minutes for September 10, 2020

Meeting opened at 5:30pm. Adjourned at 5:55pm. Members present: Michael Sheahan, Ben Astbury, Robert Publicover, John Gray, John Kimball

Actions Taken:

Motion to accept minutes of the August 13 meeting. All in favor.

Motion for Ben to meet with Jeffery Bunt to discuss beaver dam removal and roadside brush cutting. All in favor.


Toilet facility issue:

Pending until the end of season. John Kimball installed a sign detailing proper use of the privy.

Beaver Update:

Ben talked to DEP about dam removal. As long as the dam is a threat to town facility infrastructure, it can be removed. Ben contacted Jeffery Bunt about removal and will meet Ben at the facility.

Snow removal:

Ben suggests to take an average of the last five years for plowing cost to be split between Sedgwick and Brooksville. Brooksville agrees.

Cooper Farm Rd:

The road has been graded out but the poor drainage issues remain. Everyone should think about possible solutions for next meeting.

John Kimball:  The truck taking water from the pond leaks a little oil. Ben will contact Wardwell about the issue.

RF Jordan continues to work on the extensive reconfiguration of the outlet. So far the work looks excellent.

Full time inspections ended on Labor Day. 895 inspections this season. Higher than normal.
