1. Mr. Bill Paladino appeared before the board for Wild Willey’s Ale Room, at
1060 Route 109, to mount a 3’ X 15’ sign on the roof to say “Wild Willy’s Ale Room”.
The board discussed whether the application should be an amended conditional use
permit instead with no fee required. Chip explained to Mr. Paladino that he will
need to fill out a new application for the amended conditional use permit, and then
the board will readdress this issue at their October 2, 2008 meeting.
2. Best Possible Location Permits:
A. Ken presented an application to the board from Mr. & Mrs. Sleeper, 9 Thrush
Road, Map #126, Lot #16. After some discussion, the board decided to do a site
walk on Wednesday, October 1, 2008 at 5:30 p.m. before making any decisions on
this best possible location permit.
B. Ken presented an application to the board from Dan Higgins for a right of way
off Katy Lane, Map #110, Lot #49 to accomodate new construction on the
existing lot. Ken recommends that the board allow this project as applied for.
Keith makes a motion to accept Ken’s recommendation for the project
at Map #110, Lot #49. Randy seconds. All in favor. Passed 4-0

3. Mr. Pat Frasier came before the board for an update on the proposed road
application for Map 244, Lot 005. Mr. Frasier told the board that he turned in the

completed application, and an escrow account in the amount of $1,000.00 has
been set up with the town for necessary expenses. After much discussion, Mr.
Frasier was told that he needed to come back with a completed application,

walk is scheduled for Wednesday, October 1st at 5:00 p.m. Mr. Frasier will come
back before the board at their next meeting for follow up.

2008 as corrected. Randy seconds. All in favor. Passed 4-0
