The road side brush removal is going to be starting in the next couple of weeks - discussed the need for road side tree/branch trimming in preparation of the upcoming plow season; also discussed the need for snow plow turnarounds; it seems one of the turnarounds needs to be relocated.

The selectmen discussed the sign theft issue.  Over 12 signs have been stolen over the last couple of weeks.  This has been a problem all summer as many road signs have been stolen and it becomes quite expensive to replace them all. In order to cut the cost of signs the town has been replacing the stolen signs with wooden signs.
