SALUTE TO THE FLAG

1.  APPROVAL OF AGENDA: Approved as written.

2.  APPROVAL OF MINUTES OF LAST MEETING: Approved as written.

3. OLD BUSINESS: None.

4. NEW BUSINESS:  

1. PUBLIC HEARING: Ted opened a public hearing to receive any comments or questions about a request for renewal of the liquor license for Iron Tails Saloon. Ted reported he had made inquiry from both Maine State Police and York County Sheriff Department about any violations. The only calls reported were a theft, a criminal mischief (Civil) call and various calls for alarms going off and complaints about the animals (which are not the property of Iron Tails)  There were no comments from those present, so the hearing was closed.

2. IRON TAILS LIQUOR LICENSE: On a motion by Larissa, the license was signed.

3. AWARD LAWN CARE BID: The bids from April 12 meeting were reviewed. All applicants have furnished proof of insurance. On a motion by Larissa, Tall Grass (Robin Ham) was awarded the bid. Larissa noted she feels even though it was not the lowest bid, Robin (who currently has the maintenance contract) does a good job and it is good for the economy of the Town to employ a local entity.

4 APPOINT ELECTION CLERKS: On a motion by Bill, the following were appointed as election clerks for one year: Marion Elliott, William Lotz, Nancy Ruma, Estelle Gore, Carl Litchfield,  Susan Mrazik, Donald VanSinderen, Alan Peterson, Jane Archambault. Barbara Seckar, Virginia Shea, Douglas Venell, Maureen Dodrell, Charles Hefferon, Marita Lowell, Patricia Mucciaccio, Tina Gagnon, Clarence Langley, Anita Buttrick, Lorraine Yeaton, Ann Germon, Michael Conway, Sheila Conway, Walter Scott, Robert Anderson, Monica Marino, Larissa Crockett, James Driscoll

5. SIGN HOMESTEAD REPORT TO STATE: Acton has granted 759 Homestead exemptions. 64 of them are new this year. The State of Maine will reimburse Acton 50%. On a motion by Larissa, the report was signed.

6. SIGN HAHN SETTLEMENT:  Several years ago when the Town harvested the Town Forest on the Hebo - Hybo Road, because of poor mapping, trees were cut on the abutting Hahn property.  Forester Steve Bodkin estimated the value and the Town set aside $5,000 to reimburse the owner. Because of death and change of ownership, it has taken some time for the settlement. On a motion by Larissa, Selectmen signed the Mutual Release. 5. OTHER BUSINESS: David Winchell Jr. reported that 3 of his crew attended training classes on Flagging and Traffic Control which was very informative.

6. ANNOUNCEMENTS: Lorraine reported Bob Marquis is looking for veterans to volunteer to be represented at the Memorial Day  observance on May 27. Please contact Bob if you are willing to attend. Uniforms are not required.
