3.      Subject:  8:00 p.m. Tim Fiske, Road Agent, came in to discuss several matters with the Board.  The first item T. Fiske discussed was the new EPA regulations and the need for a storm water plan for the Highway Department.  Fiske recommended sealing the drain in the old portion of the Highway Garage; the new portion of the Highway Garage does not have a drain.  T. Fiske also explained that as of the winter of 2003 salt will no longer be mixed with the sand as the salt pile is outside and the new EPA regulations do not allow salt with sand if stored outside.  T. Fiske informed the Board that the Town needs to have a plan for implementation of the EPA requirements.  It was suggested that the Town hire a company with experience in writing these plans; the cost is approximately $900 to $1500.  T. Fiske would like the Board to get at least one other quote for this.  The second item of discussion was the old snow plow that the Town had sold to James Benotti.  Benotti has not paid for the snowplow yet.  T. Fiske got approximately 180 yards of material for the new ball field from Benotti.  Move by Frazier to accept the material for the new ball field from James Benotti in exchange for the old snow plow, second by Kantner and voted in the unanimous affirmative.  T. Fiske informed the Board that the new ball field is approximately 90% complete.  Fiske will fill in the old test pit holes on the land managed by the Conservation Commission.  The antennas for the Fire Department may not be grounded; the Board should consider budgeting to have these grounded.  The roads will be sealed in 2003.  The Board will need to consider a warrant article in 2003 to raise the Town’s portion to rebuild the Putnam Road Bridge.  There will be no State money available until 2006, but the State will not put Temple on the list for any money until the Town has raised it’s estimated $60,000 share of the cost.




4.      Subject:  8:25 p.m. Mike Connolly, Chairman of the Conservation Commission came in to discuss various issues.  First item was the well at the ball field.  A warrant article should be written for 2003 to accept the well.  Second item was the Chris Weston Conservation land.  The ConCom would like to clean up the dumping area found on this land.  There was discussion of who is responsible for clean up.  The Board informed Connolly that if any hazardous waste is found the Town is responsible; if there is no hazardous waste the ConCom can clean up the area.  Connolly asked who should be monitoring the easement on the former Banker property located on West Road.  Move by Frazier to have the Conservation Commission monitor the conservation easement on the former Alice Banker property, M 03 Lots 016 & 017, second by Fiske and voted in the unanimous affirmative.  The last item concerned a request from John Doyle for reimbursement of costs associated with the proposed conservation easement on his property, M 07 Lot 037.  Frazier stated that the Board of Selectmen never agreed to reimburse Mr. Doyle and the request came about through the Conservation Commission’s dealings with Mr. Doyle.  Connolly stated that there are costs, which the ConCom had not agreed to pay.  After discussion of who should be responsible for this request it was moved by Frazier to assign the Doyle request to the Conservation Commission for action, second by Fiske and voted in the unanimous affirmative.
