to the Lake. The Department of Inland Fisheries does not want to decrease the size of
the culvert, in fact they would like it to increase. The Department of Environmental Protection
would like the culvert done in kind. The
Army Corp of Engineers met with Colin and would like the culvert done exactly
the way it is,to issue a permit, and
they would like to meet with the Road
Committee. The recommendations should be followed to avoid fines and having to
redo the culvert to their specifications. The Land Use Attorney should review the plans. The Road committee
received a grant . They would like to contact Inland Fisheries to avoid any
omissions and errors.The Board of Selectmen should meet with the residents to
explain the regulations of the three agencies involved and realize that each
agency wants different things.

presented that the RSMS data entry should begin. The data entry should be done
by someone who knows the road and stop signs. Leslie and/or Kim volunteered to
do the data entry and have it ready for spring. As for a deadline, it should
start after the New Year and be completed by March 1, 2022. Will felt that a date should be set to get the work done. It would include the information and
condition of the roads. Perhaps the date to start would be January
6, 2022 and the
data could be updated weekly as needed. The training was intense.
