  1. Reviewed and dispersed mail.
  2. Read and accepted minutes from the previous selectmen meeting.
  3. The selectmen met with Charlie Baeder, representative of Belgrade Regional Conservation about the Kennebec Highlands. They are looking into acquiring a Vienna property. There was a general discussion on the management plan of the Kennebec Highlands. Selectmen discussed the tax exemptions along with tree growth and that the state owned land is exempt from taxes. The discussion went into the abandonment of roads on the Kennebec Highland property. The roads were closed around 1992 to town maintenance but were left open to public access. It was noted that some of the road has been blocked and the selectmen requested that the road be re-opened. The selectmen will be having more meetings with the state before the management plan is updated. The Kennebec Highlands are looking to purchase more property within Vienna.
  4. Dodi reported that she attended the Ordinance Review Committee meeting on the 19th. Also present were Sue Burns, Jim Anderberg, and Waine Whittier. It was agreed that the committee going forward will have five members including one from the Planning Board. The selectmen are looking to appoint two new members. It was also agreed that there would be no more meetings until a need is determined.
