BoS 4/18

Below is the agenda for the 4/18 meeting of the Board of Selectmen.  The back up data for the agenda runs to 69 pages, so I am providing it as a PDF.  It contains the usual requests, as well as Maurice Goulet’s memo about the Waste Water Treatment Plant issue and the Zoning Board of Appeals comprehensive permit decision on the Larkins’ Hospital Road 40B, both of which I already posted.

To anyone interested in the operation of your volunteer town boards, I commend you to examine the Zoning Board of Appeals forty-seven page, single spaced decision, which shows a remarkable level of thoughtful and detailed examination of the issues on the town’s behalf.  Both that process and decision represent huge investments of time and effort by the three Zoning Board of Appeals members, Douglas C. Boyer (Acting Chair), John J. McNicholas, Charles H. Peck, and I thank them.  The ZBA’s decision last year on the LCB assisted living facility was an equally impressive bit of work.
