  1. Reviewed and dispersed mail.

  3. Organized property cards.
  4. Selectmen held their meeting in the small office, as the Ordinance Review Committee and others were meeting in the bigger room. Selectmen had a general discussion of the annual town meeting which was held the previous Saturday. The budget passed as recommended. All incumbents were re-elected; the two contradicting proposals for changes to the Building Ordinance both passed. There was a discussion on how to best handle this situation with a special election.
  5. The selectmen then joined the ORC meeting for further discussion on the special election. After much discussion, it was agreed that we would have a run-off election on the two proposals; we would make it clear on the ballot that you can vote Yes on only one proposal. Present for Ordinance Review Committee meeting: Marianne Archard, Jim Anderberg, Tim Bickford, Stanley Webster, Waine Whittier, Dodi Thompson, Chris Smith.
