CEO REPORT: The landscapers are working at the site marked with a stop work order, but no construction being done, doing a lot of paperwork because septic systems haven’t been fully installed and inspected and that is holding up construction on many projects.

DISCUSSION ITEMS: TRIO demo update: Scheduled for June 3 at 2 p.m. Sheahan will notify Blue Hill Town Office to see if they can attend.
Flag Pole update: Lucius Bridges will have the replacement pole ready by Memorial Day.
Walker Pond – Sheahan and John Kimball checking the access. Waiting to hear from a person at the state level about opening the access. After notice from state will meet with Brooksville and make a final decision on opening for boating and/or swimming for the summer season.
COVID 19 opening of the Town Office: Will check with staff for their recommendations and make a decision next week.

ACTION ITEMS: Approved the contract for a porta potty for the Town Dock.
Salt Pond Access: Sheahan will call Blue Hill Heritage Trust to see if we should put a bathroom at the access. They are planting potatoes in a portion of the field. Sheahan will also mow the access to the shore.

PUBLIC COMMENTS: Wetterskog asked if Blue Hill administrator had been notified of the TRIO demonstration. Sheahan will notify her.
