Farmland Preservation Proposal – continued from August meeting.

Mr. Mannette requested that the agenda item be tabled.  First Selectmen, Ms. Roberts, explained that this item should no longer be an agenda item, it would have had to go on the ballot for November 8th and the Board of Selectmen did not approve it.  It has to be approved simultaneously or it is a dead issue and cannot go on ballot, it did not meet the timeframe and a town meeting would need to be held to pass it.  There was further discussion that this item will be brought up again later this year or in 2006.


Letter to Town department, agencies and commissions regarding input for Annual Report.

It was discussed that Mr. Dove elected to prepare the letter and the Treasurer, Ms. Szabo, will send the notice.


Recording Secretary

Lori Holden has taken on the role as the new Recording Secretary.  It was discussed that a list of duties and what is expected from everyone be put together and given to her.
