SELECTMEN SPECIAL MEETING
March 22, 2016
CTO: 10:22 A.M.
ATTENDANCE: Bradley McVetty, Douglas Lord, Kyle Bouthillier, William and Linda Sanborn, Shauna Clifford from the Department of Transportation, and Susan Irwin.
FILL OUT GRANT: Shauna went over the grants explaining the options and which ones would suit our needs best. The “Better Roads Grant” is an 80/20 split and there is a workshop being presented in Peacham on March 31st from 8-noon at the Peacham Town Garage.
She discussed the Class II Resurfacing Grant. If the Town signs the 2013 Road and Bridge Standards, they will receive 10% more from the Federal Government but we need to see if following their standards will cost us more than the additional 10% we would receive.
The Structures Grant can be used to replace or repair culvers 36” or greater on Class I, II, and III roads.
She also explained in detail how Act 64, the 2015 law to improve water quality, will affect municipal roadways maintenance.
HIGHWAY FINANCIAL REPORT: They then filled out the Annual Highway Financial Report.
VISIT SITE ON NORTH ROAD: At 11:30 a.m. they left for North Road to view and discuss the site.
ADJOURNED 12:30 p.m.
Respectfully submitted by Susan L. Irwin
