SEPTEMBER 22, 2008

Selectboard: Joe Mandell, Guy Wachtel, Gary Katz, Piet van Loon
Also Present: Todd Lawley, Shannon Meckle, Barbara Reeves, Carter Reeves, Chris Druke

The site visit was called to order at 10:00 a.m. by Gary Katz.

The board walked both Parish Hill Road and Deer Hill Road with the landowners to see the drainage and their concerns.

Todd suggested building up a berm along Deer Hill Road in order to direct the water to go under the guardrail and down to the brook instead of down the bank.

The consensus of the board was to contact Vermont Local Roads and have a representative come and look at the situation with the board, and subsequently make recommendations. Todd agreed to contact them and see if they could possibly come before the October 2 Selectboard meeting. Barbara Reeves requested that she be contacted so that she could be present when Vermont Local Roads came.

The board entered Executive Session to discuss a legal matter at 10:35 a.m. upon a motion by Piet van Loon and a second by Guy Wachtel. The vote was unanimous.

A motion was made by Piet van Loon to come out of Executive Session at 10:45 a.m. Guy Wachtel seconded the motion. The vote was unanimous.

Gary will ask Shannon to warn a special meeting for October 8, 2008 at 2:30 p.m. for the purpose of meeting with Attorney Woodward.

A motion was made by Piet van Loon and seconded by Guy Wachtel to adjourn at 10:46 a.m. The vote was unanimous.

Respectfully Submitted,

Shannon Meckle
Administrative Assistant
