(A)  SIGN ADDENDUM TO PURCHASE AND SALES AGREEMENT: Selectmen met with Attorney Joseph Lenkowski who is acting as the Town's agent in the proposed land purchase. Lenkowski suggested an addendum to the purchase and sales agreement should be signed, due to some errors in the original property description.  He noted that the boundaries are clearly defined with stone walls and  brooks so does not feel a survey is necessary. On a motion by Jim, seconded by Mike, an addendum was signed. Included in the addendum is a 45 day inspection period. The Forestry Committee has walked the property and Nancy wants a report from them.

Nancy reported that Selectmen have scheduled an executive session for next meeting to discuss a personnel issue. The Agenda has been posted on the bulletin board.

Also, both December 25 and January 1 fall on Tuesdays, so the selectmen will have to reschedule their meetings for those two dates.
