Members Present: Ellie Chesebrough, Debby Heinz, BettyAnn McCallum
Non Members: Mike Guzinski, Jeanne Lovett, Arthur

• MINUTES: Acceptance of minutes was postponed until next meeting because of pending changes.

• COMPENSATION CHART: Debby suggested that a category be added to the compensation chart for stipend employees. BettyAnn raised the question of whether or not these employees fall under the Personnel Bylaw. Debby felt that having this category listed made it easier for the public to see what people get paid.

• POLICIES: The Personnel Policies and Procedures have been read three times (as required) by the Selectmen and should be approved at their November meeting. They will go into effect January 1, 2012. BettyAnn brought up the request from highway employees that they get reimbursed for some of their license renewals. Jeanne said that they were already eligible for reimbursement because it was a job-related expense.

• BYLAW: Jeanne and Mike brought up the bylaw policies regarding limited part-time employees again. They both felt that regular employees who work less than 20 hours per week should receive holiday, bereavement and sick pay. The Board felt that either all limited part-timers get these benefits or none do. The Board agreed to change the bylaw back to allow for these benefits. Seasonal, temporary and fill-in employees will receive no benefits. The Board also voted to leave the section regarding number of board members at 5.

• SUBCOMMITTEE: A subcommittee has been formed to review the evaluation process. It consists of Steve Zisk, Bill Cundiff, MaryBeth Mello, Patty Brule and Marleen Bacon. They have met once but have nothing to report yet.

• NEW MEMBER: The Selectmen have received an application from Kristen Stevens who has expressed an interest in serving on our Board. No action was taken on this matter.

• JEFF LAPORTE: Jeff Laporte read a statement concerning his interpretation of actions by Personnel Board member Debby Heinz. Debby apologized for any offense and Jeff accepted the apology.

• JOB DESCRIPTIONS: We are still waiting for job descriptions from the Financial Department and Assessors.

• NEXT MEETING: November 15, 2011, at 2:00 p.m. Debby will post it.
