3. May 15th Annual Town Meeting Motions – Meeting With Moderator

Moderator Jerome Jussaume spoke with the Board regarding the Annual Town Meeting Motions. As usual, article 1 and 2 will most likely be combined. If Article 13 does not pass, then Article 14 will be postponed indefinitely. Jerome Jussaume will have the audience scan the Personnel Bylaw. The Board discussed Articles 17 & 18 and decided to recommend that the articles be postponed indefinitely since the Board does not support them because of outstanding items. The Board discussed with Jerome Jussaume about the end of the meeting. The Board decided that Jerome Jussaume should use his best judgement, but suggested that he look seriously at how long after 10PM the meeting should go.

4. Set Date for Year-End Special Town Meeting

Norm MacNeill suggested June 5th as the date for the year-end special town meeting.

Mark Bloomfield made a motion, seconded by Ron Forget, to set the Special Town Meeting to be June 5th at 7PM. Vote Unanimous.

5. Executive Administrator’s Report

Norm MacNeill presented his report to the Board. The Cellco case has been settled.
The superintendent and Norm MacNeill have agreed to share costs of a Technology Coordinator. Monthly department head meetings have begun and have been very productive.

6. New Business

Mark Bloomfield discussed the need for the Board to be proactive in taking care of explaining that even though the purchase of the land was on the ballot it was moot. Unfortunately, it was defeated at the ballot and Mark Bloomfield feels the need to be proactive will prevent backlash.

Buff Therrien asked the Board about the old elementary school renovation project. His concern is that it passed at the ballot and he wanted to know why the Board was backing off. The reasoning was explained as the wording on the ballot was too limiting in that the school had to be used for temporary school space, but since the School Committee made the decision to fund six portables, the Board has decided to hold off on bond authorization because the Town may not need the space. The Board may go back to the Town to see if there is any other use.

The Board discussed the need to set goals for Norm MacNeill for next year.

7. Adjournment

At 7:48 PM, Mark Bloomfield made a motion, seconded by Ron Forget to adjourn, Vote Unanimous.

Respectfully Submitted,
