  5. Carole O’Connell from the Historical Society asked if the town could repair the shoulder of the section of the Kimball Pond Road in front of the spring and repair the edge of the road. This has been forwarded to the Road commissioner. Selectmen suggested the historical society could put up a “seasonal fence” to keep automobiles off the shoulder.

Town meeting went smoothly. The budget was accepted as presented; all articles passed, and the proposed Building Ordinance was adopted.
  5. Discussed the theft of town materials from the sand/salt shed property. We have had a town resident take truck loads of sand over the winter; they also took stone/gravel to fix their driveway this spring.   One of the selectmen caught them twice and gave them a warning and explained the salt/sand policy of the Town.  The selectmen continued to explain to them the proof (including photos) he had gathered, as well as reports from other town residents. The selectmen agreed to send an official letter asking for reimbursement to the town for two loads of sand and two loads of gravel. If no payment is received by May 1, 2016, the proper law enforcement authorities will be notified.
  6. Jim Craig requested a copy of the new Building Ordinance.
  7. Chief Church requested a copy of the warrant to submit for reimbursement from a forestry grant.
