Next Meeting Date: TBD
Herb called the meeting to order at 5:04pm. Tim so moved. Mike seconded. Mike Moran, Carl Oertel, Ray Colton, Tim Carter and Jeremy Rayner in attendance. Public present: Joyce Stevens
Minutes Approval: July 19, 2021- Mike moved that the meeting minutes be accepted. Jeremy seconded. All in favor.
- Paving Project issue: Charlie Bowen, the paving contractor suggested the Committee wait until the spring to pave over the drainage trench so the hard pack has more time to settle under snow pack and decrease the risk that the asphalt will crack and sink and repairs will have to be made. Delaying the paving would impact reopening Town Hall in time for the September MakerPlace and possible Town Meeting in March. The Committee discussed several ways to address the situation and decided to revisit completing the paving at the end of August and contacting Bowen to determine his availability to pave in September. Jeremy moved that the committee support this plan. Ray seconded. All but Carl were in favor. Tim left the meeting prior to the vote.
- Next Steps- the Committee discussed tasks that still need to be completed in order to reopen the first floor of Town Hall. Re-hanging the electric panel, sheet-rocking around the lift, unsticking the fire exit door, repositioning fire exit lights and replacing some bulbs. Carl offered to get materials at Bethel Lumber and complete the first two projects. Carl estimated the materials would cost around $250 and his labor $200. The committee suggested they make it $500. Carl suggested they make it up to $600 for labor and materials. Jeremy moved to have Carl do the projects, (except taping and mudding the sheetrock). Mike seconded. All in favor.
There being no further business of the committee, Jeremy moved to adjourn the meeting at 6:01pm. Ray seconded. All in favor.
