came in with Kay Lamarre, candidate for the part time police officer
opening. McTague submitted
Lamarreís application for the Boardís review. McTague explained that he generally
requests an initial 6-month appointment so that the background check may be
completed. After the first
6-months the appointments are generally for 3 years. Move by Petro to appoint Kay Lamarre
as a part time police officer to a 6-month period, second by Kantner and voted
in the unanimous affirmative.
McTague informed the Board he has researched the donation of an OHRV
and thinks that accepting this gift will be a good deal. The liability insurance will be
approximately $4.00/year and registration cost will be minimal. Maintenance should consist of regular
oil changes, etc. There was
discussion about accepting this gift.

a certified OHRV trainer and would use this OHRV to hold training classes as
well as other uses. The Board set

rental of apartments on the property until this matter has been cleared
up. There was discussion of the
Board of Selectmen enforcing the zoning ordinances. Fiske will review the minutes of prior
meetings that deal with the original complaint. Kullgren was reminded that he could
have filed an appeal from an administrative decision with the Zoning Board of
Adjustment within 30 days after he had received the letter from the Board of
Selectmen if he hadnít agreed with their decision.
