            (B) FIRE DEPARTMENT STIPEND: Nancy reported that Petey Smith had planned to be  here tonight but a medical emergency had prevented it. When Petey calculated the stipends two  weeks ago he made an error and used an incorrect multiplier, resulting in over payment of the stipends. Those receiving officer's salaries will have their overpayment deducted from their salaries. The others will be deducted from the  members next stipend payment.

 

 

            (C)  TOWN HALL WATER TEST: The recent test shows iron, manganese and hardness levels unacceptable, however these levels are considered aesthetic and are not known to cause  a health hazard.

 

 

            (D) LINDA CAPRISTO: Linda is working on the assessing programs, transferring data  from Britesides to Trio. Linda's salary was not in the budget but selectmen definitely  consider her as an employee working in excess of 20 hours weekly and therefore eligible  for insurance benefits. Selectmen will need to find money in the budget to fund her salary.
