TOWN OF ACTON

SELECTMEN’S MEETING

January 2, 2007

At the request of Selectman Tony Cogliandro, a moment of silence was observed in remembrance and respect of our late President, Gerald Ford.

 

1. PUBLIC FORUM:

Dennis also asked about his request for a written apology from the selectmen relative to the 11/21/06 meeting. Nancy had announced publicly that she would consider it, and he has not received it. Nancy said that they had considered it but neither she nor Tony had done anything to apologize for. Jim was expressing his personal opinion, not the opinion of the board. She cannot make him do something if he doesn’t want to. Dennis said it should not have been allowed in a selectmen’s meeting. Nancy replied that she did try to call for order with her gavel.

 

Jeremy asked if the manual being put together on existing policies and ordinances would be available for public use. Nancy said it will be available for the public to look at.
