- Electrical Installation: Herb brought members up to date on the electrical installation project.

Glenn seconded. All in favor. Wall outlets and overhead lighting still have to be completed quickly in order not to lose a place in the schedules of installers for spray insulation and drywall. The committee had previously received a bid from Mike Juris (J-5 Electric). Mike moved to hire Juris to complete the electrical installation. Glenn seconded. All in favor. Herb will contact Mike to see if and when he can start. Ann and Herb will investigate fixtures and bring recommendations to the committee for approval.

Herb said Poulin can paint the tines black for additional fee. Mike moved to have Poulin complete the project for an estimated total $150.00 to be taken out of the Town Hall Reserve Fund. Ray seconded. All in favor.
- Town Hall Article request: members estimated that building the new front steps and re-siding the front of Town Hall could exceed the current available reserve and Begin Funds balance of approximately $60,000. that would leave no funding to complete repairing and painting the two other exterior walls and is requesting the Select Board submit an Article at Town Meeting seeking approval from taxpayers for $10,000 in additional funding for Town Hall renovations and repair.
