TREASURER/TAX COLLECTOR REPORT:  Voted (2-0) not to pay for tax collector’s mileage from her new home. 


PUBLIC BUSINESS:    Tobey asked why the water level at Walker Pond was down.  Once or twice a year the dams are raised to circulate the water.  They are put back after a day or so.  They are back now.  The pond biologist reports that the pond is looking good from his tests.


OLD BUSINESS:  Signed the Municipal Valuation Return prepared by the assessor’s agent.  Will wait for Davis to look it over and sign before mailing to the state.

            The Carter’s were in to discuss the Salt Pond right of way that goes through the house.  They want to put the house up for sale and need to clear up the right of way situation before doing so. 


NEW BUSINESS:  Grindal will check about getting permission to build a turn-around on the end of Pertville Road for the schoolbus.

            Road Commissioner Carter will replace a culvert on the Rural Cemetery end of the Old County Road.

            Interviews for Tax Collector have been set up for Monday afternoon.


CEO REPORT: Has been down to check on the Four Winds property.  There has been no replanting of vegetation yet.
