CEO REPORT: Have done 4 inspections today on various stages of septic systems, sending paperwork and photos to the town attorney regarding the shoreland zoning issue, there seems to be an influx of people coming into town and needing building notifications. Noted that Radar Road sign is missing.

DISCUSSION ITEMS: Met with the road commissioner regarding ideas for snow plowing after this year when the current contract is up. Should it go out to bid? what arrangements for salt and sand? He will think about some ideas and will get back to us. He did suggest that a salt/sand mixture for resident driveways be available, perhaps on the basketball court behind the town office. He also suggested that perhaps the Walker Pond access road and the school be added to the roster to be plowed.
Ms Magoon is getting people from all walks of life to make up a committee to discuss strategic planning for the school. Sheahan will represent the selectmen. Jane Osborn will lead the process and meetings will start as soon as there is a committee formed. A survey is being put together for mailing to residents.
Sheahan signed the engagement contract with James Wadman, CPA for auditing services for the coming year.
Will continue with final fiscal year figures next week.

ADJOURN: There being no further business, moved, seconded and voted 2-0 to adjourn the meeting at 7:10 p.m.

Respectfully submitted,
Barbara Grindle, Assistant
