Board of Selectmen
Minutes - Prior to Town Meeting
May 7, 2012
Approved May 14, 2012

• Call to Order:
Chairman Timothy Bonin called the meeting to order at 6:35 pm. In attendance: Mitch Cohen, Hal Davis, Michael Hughes, Jeffrey LaPorte, Town Administrator Michael Guzinski, and Administrative Assistant Suzanne Kane.

Other Staff and Citizens: Atty Rich Bowen, Police Chief Pat Foley, and Fire Chief Kent Vinson.

• Fundraiser Toll Road Request:
In the agenda is a memo from Chief Foley, dated May 7, 2012, Subject: Toll Road; and an email from Chief Vinson, dated May 7, 2012, re: Toll Road Request.
• In 2001, at the recommendation of the Police and Fire Chiefs, the board voted against a Fundraiser Toll Road request and requested a policy against future Toll Roads. At the Selectmen’s last meeting, Michael Guzinski presented another Town Use Request for a Toll Road fundraiser. The board asked for comment/recommendation from the Police and Fire Chief’s. Chief Foley stands by his original recommendation. Fire Chief Vinson concurs with Retired Fire Chief Gonynor’s original recommendation; both in opposition of allowing fundraising Toll Roads. Discussion concerning letting the policy stand by not allowing Toll Roads, allowing them for all, or only allowing for certain groups. Some members felt they should take no action on the current application and re-visit the policy later. Mitch Cohen made a motion to leave the policy as is and deny the application. Michael Hughes seconded the motion. All – aye with Jeffrey LaPorte – nay.

• Adjournment:
Mitch Cohen made a motion at 6:43 pm to adjourn. Michael Hughes seconded the motion. All – aye.

Respectfully submitted;

Suzanne Kane
