A. Article 43 – The Town Administrator read aloud an email was received from Leslie Berlan covering the following points:

·     After speaking with Road Committee members the general consensus of the group was that either June 15th or June 22nd would work.

·   A concern was listed that not all committee members have access to a computer for Zoom meetings and that a group size of 50 or less should

      permit regular meetings.

· Asked when would the FOI requested be ready for the Road Committee to review; it is important to review this information prior to the committee meeting with the Board.

The Town Administrator responded:

· An opportunity to go back and review the Road Committee meetings minutes was needed to see if a personal request or committee request was made.

· Time will be needed to go through all email accounts to verify if there was any information related to the request to be produced for review. All information will be pulled together, given to the committee. The committee can review and investigate their concerns and then bring to the Board of Selectmen an opinion.

· Two concerns cited by Jay Ward, committee member at the last BOS meeting.

· The reschedule dates of June 15th and June 22nd are no longer feasible due to calendar conflicts. The reschedule time chosen by the BOS is June 24th during the regular Board of Selectmen meeting via Zoom. The Town Administrator will let the committee know.


A. FOI Request

There was a FOI request done that the Town Administrator thought to be complete, however, there was a bit more needed relating to Sections 5.11 and 5.16 amendments and any documents related to such be produced.

9.         PUBLIC COMMENT:

The Town Administrator received comments from Arnold Murray regarding the estimated cost of elections inquiries. The following was recapped or responded to:

· Town Administrator replied to Mr. Murray in a telephone conversation. Discussed were minutes of May 13th not being online to view. APAT reported it was online but not where supposed to be; link has been fixed. The meeting’s minutes were the correct minutes.

· Mr. Murray is on the W&F committee; requests are not clear if it is a committee request or personal request. In the future Mr. Murray will use a personal email. Selectmen David Winchell commented that if you become a committee member, it ties you to that committee and boundaries are muted.

· Election costs through FEMA are broken out as follows:

o 75% Federal

o 15% State

o 10% Municipal (will use emergency funds to cover)

·    State reimbursements usually take 2 years; federal is faster.

· The machines to count votes were already going to be purchased for this year to alleviate hand counting batches of 50 twice which generally take until midnight.

· Impact of costs to combine municipal elections with federal and state elections:

o Ballots generally cost $400 – 600

Staff will still be onboard for the elections

o Absentee ballots utilize same envelopes

Town meeting usually costs $500.

o The only extra expense is the printed ballots.

o Residents are thankful with the way the Selectmen have decided to do this election and town meeting.

· The warrant has been signed and when the ballots return, they will be posted.

· This is only for 1 year and other municipalities are scrambling to also do this in their towns as well.

· Regarding petitions being circulated regarding Town Meeting, section 4.5.28 states 60 days are needed for submission and the elections will happen

    prior to that 60 days being met.
