Board of Selectmen
Meeting Minutes
November 19, 2001

1. Call to Order

Chairman Thomas Navaroli called the meeting to order at 7:05 PM. In attendance: Shirley Mosczynski, Rich Preston, Ron Forget, Edward Therrien, and Interim Executive Administrator Tom Landry. Also present were Water Commissioners Robert Josey and Joseph Saster, as well as Water Superintendent Tony Gressak.

2. Grant Application
Board members discussed with the Commission the potential benefit of the Town making application for USDA grant funds for two separate projects- the wastewater treatment plant, and the water lines from Franklin Street to Northeast/North Streets. While application was generally considered desireable, a certain amount of engineering is required to complete the application to USDA requirements. Quotes from the Town’s engineers place this cost at $11,500. The Commission stated that while it did not have sufficient funds to pay these costs from the enterprise fund, it could up front them, with the understanding that it will be repaid by end of the fiscal year. The Board agreed to this idea , and will seek a transfer or appropriation for this purpose at the next Town Meeting. No vote was taken.

3. Executive Administrator
At 7:13, the Board met with Kenneth Mahony, and his wife Gracia. The Board selected Mr Mahony from the group of finalists for the Executive Administrator position, and met with him to review proposed contract terms. Mr Landry reviewed aspects of the proposed contract at some length ( attached). Mr Landry said that Mr Mahony was available to start on November 26, but would be unavailable for the period December 20 through January 2 due to a previous commitment. A motion to appoint Mr Mahony as the Executive Administrator, effective November 26, 2001 , under the terms of the contract as presented(Shirley Mosczynski motion, RonForget second) passed unanimously. The Board did not sign the proposed contract, but will do so at its next meeting once it has been put into final form.

4. Senior Center Outreach Coordinator
Mr Landry told the Board that the Senior Center Director was out on an extended maternity leave, which had resulted in additional hours and duties for the Outreach Coordinator, who was requesting additional compensation for the increased activity. The Board indicated a willingness to consider a proposal , once the availabilitry of funds was identified.

5. Adjournment Ron Forget made a motion at 7:33 pm to adjourn . Edward Therrien seconded the motion . All – aye.

Respectfully Submitted,
Tom Landry
