*Shirley wants us to check when the “new” part of the Douglas Center Cemetery was purchased.

*Received memo from Treasurer/Collector regarding Foreclosed Properties in Douglas right next to the cemetery on South Street. It is agreed by Commission to talk with Mike regarding Town Funds being used to purchase this property.
