June 2, 2022

Opened the meeting and declared a quorum present. Selectmen present: Colby Pert (by phone Michael Sheahan). Also present: Clerk/treasurer Cindy Reilly, CEO Duane Ford, Assistant Barbara Grindle (by phone Jerry Wetterskog).

There being no errors or omissions in the records of the last meeting, moved, seconded, and voted 2-0 to accept them as written.

Reviewed and signed the treasurer’s warrant for $24,104.87: clearing:h/f $133, clearing:a/c $16, clearing:m/v $6,063.75; general assistance $1,252; fees $113.60; Fire protection $666.67; road signs $184.42; administration $15,570.43, legal $105.

CEO REPORT: Looked at a property that had questions about subdivision, if selling one lot and keeping 1 lot, not a subdivision; asked for a certificate of occupancy, we don’t have one, but sent a letter explaining and that there are no violations on the property; a new boat storage building is good to go to the Planning Board if they still have the proper paperwork; a letter and a complaint regarding a property on Black’s Pond, we will keep an eye on it but haven’t heard from DEP regarding on-going problems, this may need to go to the town attorney or a mediator; otherwise just juggling stuff.

DISCUSSION ITEMS: 1) ACO Advertisement: tabled until next week.
2) Warrant Signing: Pert signed the warrant for the Town Meeting, clerk will take to Sheahan and call Astbury and then deliver to resident to post.
3) Unresolved Business: a) Matt Caldwell, Town assessing agent, suggested getting together on June 22 to set the commitment. Date ok with Pert and Sheahan, will check with Astbury and confirm.
b) Received an email from Emergency Management Services regarding a facility for safely housing residents in case of an emergency. In the past the Fire House has been used, school could be used, need to discuss with emergency personnel. c) a complaint received about someone setting up a camper and settling in at the Salt Pond access. Pert and Astbury visited and explained that it is not a campground, posted a sign and the campers had left. d) Salt Pond resident objecting to people clamming on her private property.


ASSISTANT’S REPORT: Assessing agents have been in and have finished the spring work.


ADJOURN: There being no further business, moved, seconded and voted 2-0 to adjourn the meeting at 6:32 p.m.

Respectfully submitted,
Barbara Grindle, Assistant
