Call to Order

Mr. Hughes called the meeting to order at 6:33 PM at Douglas High School.

Board: Mike Hughes (Chairman), Tim Bonin, David Cortese, Hal Davis, Kevin Morse, Michael Guzinski (Town Administrator), Suzanne Kane (Administrative Assistant)
Other Staff and Citizens: Atty. Rich Bowen, Cheryl Vaidya (Treasurer), Jeanne Lovett (Finance Director)

1. $600,000 Ban for School Project (00:06)
Mr. Guzinski stated that a municipal note sale for a $600,000 ban related to the school project is needed. These funds are needed to cover all the final expenses from now until the final reimbursement is received from the state. The Town Treasurer went out to bid and received a 0.7% interest rate for an eight month term. The total interest on the $600,000 will be $2,450.
Mr. Morse made a motion to approve the $600,000 ban as presented. Mr. Cortese seconded the motion. All-Aye.

2. Meeting with the Dept. of Conservation and Recreation (DCR)
Mr. Guzinski has spoken with Sen. Fattman’s office regarding the 10:30 AM May 4, 2016 DCR meeting. Mr. Guzinski expressed his interest in moving the date back a couple weeks and asking the Commissioner of DCR to attend. It was feared that if the meeting does not occur on the fourth, that it was unlikely to occur for some time. Mr. Guzinski does not know if DCR has plans to change the park’s single closing policy. It was decided that Mr. Guzinski, Mr. Bonin, Mr. Cortese and Police Chief Foley will attend the meeting to discuss the single park closure, assistance from the Environmental Police, and a solid understanding of the revenue sharing from the park admission fee. If there are disagreements, another meeting will need to be arranged. Mr. Guzinski will confirm the meeting with Sen. Fattman’s office.
It was decided to meet at 6:00 PM on May 5, 2016 to review the discussions of the DCR meeting.

3. Indefinite Postponement of STM Article 3 (09:30)
Mr. Guzinski stated that an insurance check has not yet been received, therefore the article will be postponed indefinitely.

4. Adjournment (10:13)
Mr. Morse made a motion at 6:44 PM to recess, reconvene at Town Meeting and adjourn the meeting at the end of Town Meeting. Mr. Cortese seconded the motion. All – Aye.
Mr. Morse made a motion at 11:00 PM to adjourn. Mr. Cortese seconded the motion. All – Aye.

Respectfully submitted,
