CEO REPORT: Planning Board meeting was well conducted and encompassed the Comprehensive Plan discussion. Bob Manheimer checked in about potential changes to his home on Shore Road, more flooding in the last storm; Architect called about information for the new construction in the Shoreland Zone at Walker Pond, may need to meet and provide a Shoreland Building Permit; did an inspection of property at Alder Lane where there are downed trees being cleaned up, they also had more storm damage; gave a resident information about new construction, will follow up.

DISCUSSION and/or ACTION ITEMS: 1) Storm Damage – More damage on Carter Point, selectmen will check with Road Commissioner for a possible waiver for large trucks delivering rocks to stabilize the shore there. The owners are afraid that another storm could potentially reach their homes, making the stabilization an emergency. They will put up a sign for people to avoid the dangerous area and recommend that they use Steamboat Road instead of Carter Point Road in the shore areas.
2) Audit Update: Auditors are waiting for still more figures from treasurer. They can’t do any more until they have the final figures.
3) Warrant Workshop – Worked on the budget figures for the annual Town Report.

UNRESOLVED BUSINESS: 1) List of things requested for the Town House.
2) Sign appointment papers for committee members and staff.

PUBLIC COMMENTS: Wetterskog asked if the selectboard could possibly meet bi-weekly. It might encourage more people to take part in the town’s business. Selectmen seem to have issues to take care of every week making a weekly meeting necessary.

ADJOURN: There being no further business, moved, seconded and voted to adjourn the meeting at 7:27 p.m.

Respectfully submitted,
Barbara Grindle, Assistant
