Ron Forget asked about the easement, why they nailed it down now. Bill Cundiff stated the existing car path which is used by the Beagle Club, is where they are currently holding meetings, if they have to change the location of their meetings they would have to extinguish the current easement. Shirley Mosczynski stated Town Counsel Deborah Eliason said they should specify the easement. Bill Cundiff stated that 170,000’1,071 feet of frontage was confirmed by Andrews. Ron Forget asked if there is a key to the gate to the Beagle Clubs right of way.

Shirley Mosczynski referred to the letter from Town Counsel, dated March 17, 2004, re: Chamberlain Unitrust Chapter 61 Property which instructed the Board of Selectmen to send a letter to the Board of Assessors requesting they abate the unpaid taxes and re-classify the property.

Bill Cundiff went over the history of the project. He stated to date he has Right of Entry forms from 6 of the 10 property owners. He stated he has solicited prices for appraisers in case he does not get all of the Temporary Easements, and stated he is optimistic that he can still work with individuals along the route. Bill Cundiff discussed the spread in dollar amounts for the proposals and explained he called Guerriere & Halnon, Inc., who came in 6.5 thousand less then the others for Surveyor price, to make sure they understand the scope of the project. He stated they understood and he recommends awarding the project to them. Marcia J. Ofcarcik came in low for the Appraiser. He stated he has never dealt with them before, but the Assessors have and he feels comfortable recommending them. He stated that if the contractors did not get the go ahead it could jeopardize the $800,000 federally funded project. Paula Brouillette made a motion to award the Surveyor Contract to Guerrier & Halnon, Inc. for $3,900.00 and the Appraiser Contract to Marcia J. Ofcarcik for $4,500.00 as recommended. Edward Therrien seconded the motion. All – aye. Bill Cundiff stated that he has submitted the Article for Town Meeting as a general article which needs to be reviewed by Town Counsel and would give authority to the Board of Selectmen to make decisions. Bill Cundiff stated the easements are temporary but Mass Highway requires it for 5 years even if the project takes 6 months to complete.

5. MA Electric – Mike Peterson and Down Town Improvement:
In the agenda is a memo to the Board of Selectmen, from Suzanne Kane, dated March 11, 2004, re: Underground Utilities in Other Communities; an email to Suzanne Kane, from Town of Halifax, dated February 23, 2004, re: MassClerks FW: Question for other Communities; emails to Suzanne Kane, from the Town of Needham, dated February 25, 2004, re: FW: Undergrounding of Utilities; an email to Suzanne Kane, from the Town of Lenox, dated March 02, 2004, re: Underground Utilities; handed out at the meeting is a letter to Bill Cundiff, from Mass Electric, dated February 13, 2002 and reprinted with notations March 22, 2004, re: Town of Douglas Inquiry Regarding Underground Distribution Service in the Downtown area. Mass Electric Account Manager Mike Peterson joined Bill Cundiff at the request of the Board of Selectmen to go over estimated costs and payment options for placing utilities underground. Mike Peterson handed out a letter with estimates from 2002. He stated he was not able to update the original request. He stated Option 1 in the letter is what they have been talking about. Mass Electric would take care of everything in the street, bringing utilities to two feet into each property. He stated in 2002 there was a 50% plus or minus margin for error, two years later those numbers are low and they should estimate a margin for error on the plus side reminding the Board that these are estimates. Mike Peterson cautioned the Board saying they need to be careful if they were to choose the 2% surcharge option, the provisions become effective on the NEXT January 1st following a 9 month period of enactment. In Douglas’ case it would be 2006 before construction could start. Mike Peterson also pointed out that Mass Electric only provides estimates for their equipment; the Town would still need to get estimates for Verizon, Cable, or any Police or Fire Alarms. He strongly recommends the Town have someone work with them. Mike Peterson stated that he looked at the number of customers that Mass Electric serves in Douglas, there are 3,500 meters in Town which consume approximately 4.5 million Kilowatt Hours (KW). He said if they assume each KH is worth 10 cents, and the Town took on the 2% surcharge option, that would be an additional $9,000 per month which would take 7-8 years to pay back. He took a conservative approach and figures it would take 10 years to pay Mass Electric back. Mike Peterson asked the Board to figure there are 3,000 residential homes which consume approximately 2.5 million KH, which would be approximately 880 KH per month; or 88 dollars per month plus the 2% surcharge of $2.00 on each electric bill for 10 years. He stated businesses are more difficult to relate to because businesses have three rates. Paula Brouillette asked what the total costs include. Mike Peterson explained the requisition is based on the Town Plot plan. Where everything is underground, Mass Electric would come up with an engineering plan. They would then go out to bid, or do the work themselves, but normally digging is done by someone else. The wires would be encased in concrete and sealed; they would install transformers then take down the old equipment. They would work with all the other utilities. Ron Forget asked what guarantees they give once construction starts. Mike Peterson stated they leave the overhead energized until the underground is done; they can do the cross over in one day. He stated that there will be periods of time when the construction will be in the streets, they will be in Downtown for a good 6 months. Ron Forget stated he would like to see protection for the people in the outskirts if there is a problem Downtown and asked if they would duplicate what is there. Mike Peterson confirmed they would duplicate what is above ground, underground and added if they want to build backups, the Town will pay. Ron Forget asked how difficult it is to trouble shoot underground utilities. Mike Peterson explained it is a conduit system with man holes every 300 feet. He stated they can segregate an outage to a 300’ section by how many customers are out. He stated it takes approximately 6-8 hours to do repairs in the air and 24-48 hours underground. He stated there are pros and cons to either. Wiring above ground is susceptible to damage by hurricanes; underground is susceptible to flooding; there is good and bad on both sides. Edward Therrien asked if each utility company would bill the Town. Mike Peterson stated yes, he is only speaking on the electrical side. Ron Forget asked if Mass Electric would be responsible for making sure the work gets done by prodding the other utility companies. Mike Peterson stated no; it’s a cooperative effort. The Town would have three contracts, four if there is Police or Fire alarm which is why he recommends the Town have a representative to work with all utilities to oversee the project. Bill Cundiff stated that with cooperative projects like this in the past, he has had problems with Verizon. Mitch Cohen asked about the different cost for residents and businesses to tie in, who pays for that. Mike Peterson stated it’s the responsibility of someone else to make the connections at ground level. Paula Brouillette asked if there is any data on incidents of problems with above ground versus underground. Mike Peterson stated he does not have that information with him. He stated Mass Electrics goal is to reduce liability, underground is harder to fix, but it doesn’t happen too often. He stated in that area, the Town going underground is not a problem, he feels this whole problem is aesthetics. Mike Peterson stated that Douglas is the 3rd fastest growing community. Bill Cundiff stated the Downtown Improvement group originally brought this item forward to see if the Board would put it on Town Meeting; they need to make a decision about utilities. Don Anderson from the Downtown Improvement Committee stated they will be meeting next week. Shirley Mosczynski stated the Board would wait until after the Downtown Improvement Committee met.

6. Pole Petition – P04-11 Charles Street:
In the agenda is the Pole Petition from Mass Electric (P04-11) dated February 9, 2004; Town of Douglas Pole and Wire Locations Petition Form, P04-11, submitted February 24, 2004; an email to Jane Brule, from Adelle Reynolds, dated March 3, 2004, re: Pole Petition; a letter to the Board of Selectmen, from Police Chief Foley, dated March 3, 2004, re: Pole Petition; a memo to Jane Burle, from Tree Warden Leon Mosczynski. Shirley Mosczynski opened the Pole Petition P04-11 at 8:00 pm by reading the Petition for Joint or Identical Pole Locations, dated February 9, 2004. Mass Electric Sr. OTR Roger Martinsen explained the petition is to install one pole for services at the new Water / Sewer Treatment Plant. He stated the poles are solely owned by Mass Electric. Edward Therrien made a motion to close the Pole Petition Hearing at 8:05 pm. Paula Brouillette seconded the motion. All – aye. Paula Brouillette made a motion to approve Pole Petition P04-11 as presented. Ron Forget seconded the motion. All – aye.

7. Board of Assessors Appointment:
In the agenda is an email to Suzanne Kane, from Ida Ouillette, dated February 18, 2004, re: Board Vacancy; and an Application for Boards and Commissions, from Scott Meizen, dated February 17, 2004, for Board of Assessors. Board of Assessor Jack Blatchford and James Sughrue brought Scott Meizen, 1 Tucker Circle, before the Board. Jack Blatchford requested the appointment of Scott Meizen to the Board of Assessors. He stated Mr. Meizen has attended some of their meetings. Ron Forget asked Scott Meizen if he was a tax payer in Town, to which Mr. Meizen answered in the affirmative. Paula Brouillette asked Scott Meizen if he was willing to go through the certification process that comes with the appointment. Mr. Meizen stated he is. Edward Therrien made a motion to appoint Scott Meizen to fill the elected vacancy on the Board of Assessors until the next election. Ron Forget seconded the motion. All – aye.

8. Douglas Youth Soccer – David King:
In the agenda is a letter to the Board of Selectmen, from Douglas Youth Soccer Inc., dated March 9, 2004; included a Current Situation and Program Growth spreadsheet. David King, 38 Old Farm Road, came before the Board. He stated the Douglas Youth Soccer, Inc. is not related to the Soccer Club or the Town. They are an organization whose sole purpose is to provide facilities and services for youth soccer in Douglas by fund raising. They are currently trying to obtain an easement, lease or land grant for suitable Town land that could be converted into soccer fields. David King stated the Douglas Youth Soccer met with the Conservation Commission last week but they could not come to a consensus to share land. David King explained that they are looking for 5 to 7 acres. He came to the Board tonight looking for their recommendation and authorization to go forward. Shirley Mosczynski asked if he had been in contact with the Recreation Commission. David King stated that he did talk with Recreation, their intent is to go forward with Martin Road but he is not sure if they have funds; he is trying to go forward as a private non-profit. David King stated they have a shared goal but are not working together. He stated his intent is to provide the Town with space for all recreational uses; he is not apposed to shared use. Paula Brouillette asked if there are soccer fields through Recreation for them to use. David King stated that the Martin Road fields have not come to fruition yet, they do have use of Soldiers Field but those are baseball fields and soccer is rough on them. Ron Forget asked if this is knocking heads with the Recreation Commission. David King stated there are no members in Douglas Youth Soccer; they are just raising money to provide the facilities for soccer. Ron Forget asked how Recreation received his proposal. David King stated he did vocalize the need to take some Town owned land and let an organization like his develop it. Paula Brouillette stated she appreciates efforts like this but she has concerns. She would be in favor of having a joint meeting with Recreation to develop an overall plan; they need to look at all the fields in Town. Shirley Mosczynski stated her concern is financially the Town has not been able to move forward with Capital plans; one item on the list is Martin Rd. That has been put on hold but it needs to be stabilized. She stated the Skate Park Committee was also looking for a location; they decided on Martin Road and are currently working with Recreation. She agrees with Paula Brouillette, there needs to be a meeting to review all needs. David King stated that his concern is that every year that goes by; his kids don’t get to play on a quality field. Shirley Mosczynski asked how many members are in Douglas Youth Soccer. David King stated that currently they have two members, he and Pauline Jackman. Edward Therrien stated that this would be a good time for Michael Guzinski, David King and the Recreation Commission to meet. Mitch Cohen recounted the work done by the Playground group; they worked with Recreation and put a playground at Martin Road. Jack Blatchford stated he is the Treasurer for the Douglas Axmen Soccer. He stated the only true soccer field is at the VFW; they need more fields then just at Martin Road. Consensus of the Board to have David King meet with Michael Guzinski and the Recreation Commission.

9. Budget Discussion:

Edward Therrien stated he would like to have the Mosquito Control Program but wonders where the money would come from. Shirley Mosczynski stated they need to know if the other communities around Douglas are doing it; if they aren’t it would not do Douglas any good. Paula Brouillette stated she would like to know what the other communities are using. She stated she still doesn’t understand what the difference is from what we do now and what this program offers. Is it comparable, better, she’s not clear. Paula Brouillette asked if the State Forest does something separate and was told no. Shirley Mosczynski asked the Board if they wanted to put this item on the Warrant. Paula Brouillette stated there is not sufficient information, and it’s not clear. Shirley Mosczynski stated they have an office in Northboro; they can get the information from them. Paula Brouillette asked Michael Guzinski to work with the Board of Health and find out what the other communities use. Michael Guzinski stated his experience is they use a multi level approach; they treat the larva and treat the adults. They usually will not spray near people who do not want spraying. He feels it’s a good thing although the money is an issue. He will get more information. Shirley Mosczynski asked the Board if they wanted to put a place holder on the Warrant for this item. Consensus of the Board to put a place holder on the Warrant for an Article for Mosquito Control pending additional information.

She also asked the Board if they would consider putting a place holder on the Warrant for this item. Ron Forget referred to the samples received from other communities stating he would like to see a sample from a community close to Douglas. Shirley Mosczynski stated the information provided are samples, some are more detailed then others, she again suggested reviewing the information. Paula Brouillette stated she feels this item is like the Mosquito Control item; they put in on; they can always defer it at Town Meeting. She suggested putting this item on the Warrant pending further information. Ron Forget stated he does not think they can come up with a Bylaw in three weeks, he feels it’s too quick. Shirley Mosczynski stated there are possible building projects coming up and they need someone to look after what is being done. Ron Forget stated he does not feel there will be a lot of building going on with the state of the State. Paula Brouillette agrees but stated it’s a good time to start working on a Permanent Building Committee. She stated there are some School Building Committee members who may want to serve on it. She stated the item can be on the Warrant and if they have to they can pass over it at Town Meeting. Mitch Cohen referred to the past couple of years in Capital; he has spoken to the Library Trustee’s and they are in support of a Permanent Building Committee. He stated it’s not a policy Board but a Board of knowledgeable experts. On the timing of the Bylaw, Mitch Cohen stated he is not sure this Town Meeting gives enough time. He suggested they have an Article to establish a Board to develop the Bylaw, stating he doesn’t want to rush the creation of the Bylaw. Mitch Cohen stated the Capital Committee would be happy to work with them. Ron Forget stated he can only see the need for a Building Committee when there is a major project. Paula Brouillette noted that some of the sample Bylaws are only one paragraph. She reminded the Board that they have been approved for a Library; they need to look at a Building Committee to manage that project. Shirley Mosczynski asked if she had a consensus to put a place holder on the Warrant for this item. Ron Forget stated he agreed with Mitch Cohen; it’s too early. Mitch Cohen stated he feels they should have a place holder, what he is interested in is having experts on the Committee. Shirley Mosczynski stated she feels they owe it to the Town to either establish a Board or a Bylaw. Paula Brouillette and Shirley Mosczynski are in favor of a place holder on the Warrant.
