Present: Kathy Pessolano, Beth deSousa, Peter Nossal, Judy Mikkola

 

 

Minutes:

The minutes of the September 9th meeting were approved . 

 

Discussion:

The new growth figure was certified at $173,060 by the DOR.  This is approximately $30,000 more than anticipated.  Discussion centered around the additional funds and if they should be placed in the Stabilization fund or held for expenditures at the special town meeting in April.

 

STM:

 

Kathy will attend the Selectmen’s meeting to review the articles for the meeting. She will ask for a

review of the Quinn bill request of $16,000.  This is different than the amount originally cut by the committee at the annual town meeting. There may also be additional funds in the COA Director Salary line due to Carolyn Brennan’s resignation as of October 4th.   A legal question arose as to whether it is necessary to have a paid staff person at the Senior Center building at all times.  Kathy will bring this up with the Selectmen.

 

 

Vouchers:

 

Clerk’s payroll voucher was signed.  Kathy will check on the eligibility of the clerk for longevity pay.   A voucher for ATFC dues was also signed.

 

The meeting adjourned at 8:15 pm.  Next meeting will be held prior to the special town meeting hearing on October 7th at 6:00 pm. in the town house auditorium.

 

 

Respectfully submitted,

Susan Rauscher
