3. Administrator’s Report
In the agenda is a memo from Mr. Guzinski dated April 29, 2010, advertisement for Principal Assessor.
Mr. Guzinski discussed the Open Meeting Law which mandates the posting of all Government meetings being in a place accessible to the public 24 hours per day. This goes into effect as of July 1, 2010. He has met with the Town Clerk and the Facilities Manager and noted a bulletin board which they recommend be installed next to the ramp that would meet the requirements. The quote for the sign is for $1,210. Town staff would install. This does not include electrical for lighting. Discussion held regarding the logistics of opening it to post as well as the affects of weather. Mr. Guzinski will make sure that the Town Clerk is comfortable with the functionality of the Board for posting. The Board of Selectmen is in support of obtaining a bulletin board for the outside; however, they emphasized the importance of getting the right one.
Mr. Guzinski updated the Board on the posting of the Principal Assessor position.

4. Old/New Business
OLD BUSINESS
Mr. Cohen gave an update on the School Building Project. He discussed the process of choosing a designer.
NEW BUSINESS
Mr. Cohen discussed the Town’s response to the Storm Water Bylaw last night. He felt there was some good feedback on changes that need to be made. It was the consensus of the Board that the Conservation Commission collects the information from the public, including from last night and what comes in the near future. He suggested that in advance of the next Town Meeting there be an opportunity for public input based on the output of whatever Conservation Commission puts together.
Mr. Cohen also discussed the Wind Turbine Bylaw which was passed last night. He noted that representatives from the Wind Farm Project indicated that they had some questions that the Board may want to address. Mr. Guzinski will speak to Mr. Jave about coming to the Board with a monthly report.
Ms. Brouillette noted that she has spoken with the Chair of the Capital Improvement Committee and Library Trustees. She recommends the Board support the review of capital projects and the process of moving forward with those projects as well as targeting a presentation to be made at the next Town Meeting. It was agreed that work needs to continue with this.
Mr. Hughes acknowledged Mr. Bombara and Mr. Medeiros. The Board thanked them for their service on the Board of Selectmen.
