ATTENDANCE: Bradley McVetty, Douglas Lord, Kyle Bouthillier, Bonnie Lovell, Nancy Desrochers, Robert Lancraft and Susan Irwin.
APPROVE MINUTES: Douglas moved to accept the March 22nd Selectboard meeting minutes as presented.  Kyle seconded the motion and the motion passed.  Douglas moved to accept the March 24th Selectboard meeting minutes as presented.  Kyle seconded the motion and the motion passed. Douglas moved to accept the March 7th Selectboard meeting minutes with the following changes: Under “Appoint Other Officers” Planning commission/zoning Board Members, the sentence “Kyle moved to appoint Sean McCarthy to a 3-year term to end in 2019”, the minutes should reflect that Douglas seconded the motion and the motion carried.  Under “Discuss Prior Delinquent Tax Payments” it should read that the letter was written by the Selectboard, not the Delinquent Tax Collector. Under $50,000 to pay off USDA Loan it was noted that the amount was warned as $61,000 and part of that amount will not come out of the General Fund but $5,000 of the principle and $2,800 for interest was budgeted.  This will be addressed at the Special Town Meeting on May 2, 2016.
TOWN PLAN AND ZONING BYLAW: Douglas moved to contact Repro to make the following changes to the Town Plan: 1. Update the mileage of Class III and IV roads. 2. Ask Repro to correct the page numbers in the Table of Contents to match the page numbers that were created by their reformatting. 3. Also in the Table of contents under “Education” remove “Vision” and the associated page #. 4. Include the copy of the current zoning map.  For changes to the Zoning Bylaw: 1. On pg. 6 of the proof under the section “Table 210.01 “RL1” Rural Lands 1, in the Description paragraph, remove the word “all” in the first line, in the second line remove the words “all the lands,” in the third line, correct the spelling of “steam to read stream”, and remove the word “all”. 2. On page 26 of the proof under “Recommended Actions” #3, delete the words “regulations for telecommunication facilities and”. 4. Include a copy of the Zoning map.
$50,000 TO PAY OFF USDA LOAN: This warned amount will be amended at the Special Town Meeting scheduled for May 2nd at 6:30 p.m. and will indicate that $5,000 towards the principal and $2,800 toward the interest was budgeted, and when we have the final payoff amount, the $50,000 will be amended to reflect the amount that will be voted on to take from the General Fund.  We will have the payoff amount by April 25th.
BULKY WASTE DAY: The clerk will contact NEKWMD to see if we can schedule 2 bulky waste days, one in the spring and one in the fall.
BETTER ROAD GRANT: The Selectboard filled out the grant as far as possible with the information they had, about 90%.  They are waiting for pricing for stone ditching and seed mulch.
TOWN HIGHWAY STRUCTURES GRANT: Brad met with Tim Ruggles and it will cost approximately $ 194,281 for each 14’ x 6’x40’ structure and take 2 months for the engineering and state preparation, then the bids can be sent out.
SIGN SELECTMEN’S WARRANTS: These were reviewed and signed.
OTHER BUSINESS: The board acknowledged the thank you note from the Red Cross for our donation. They were notified of the arrival of the VLCT News and an ad from Whitco Memorials.
