DPW REPORT:  Grassett reported on an email he received from the Hancock Preschool teacher asking if it would be permissible for the preschool to hold a Zumba fund raiser in the preschool on October 15th.   The Selectboard has no problem with that but asked that she also check with Pastor Copeland in case something was scheduled for the church.


The Preschool would also like to replace the stained area rug with a new one.  The only concern is how much area the new carpet will cover and what the status of the floor is.  Grassett allowed he will meet with the teacher and review that prior to any action being taken.  The Selectboard agreed to go with his decision.


Mowing:  Grassett related to the Selectboard a situation that has occurred with the construction equipment at the foot of Prospect Hill Road.


LIAISON REPORTS:  SAU and Building and Grounds subcommittee:  Jordan reported that he attended the recent meeting of the SAU as well as the Building and Grounds subcommittee.  The Conval District will be returning approximately $619,000 to the nine towns.


Planning Board:  Boland reported Grassett met with the Planning Board to determine what the Board's  intent was when the driveway regulations were drafted.  Was it to go to the end of the right of way or to the road?  The Board stated their intent was to go all the way to the road.


NEW BUSINESS:  Mileage rate:  the Selectboard agreed the intent is to have the town's mileage rate match the Federal rate.  That rate currently is $0.55 per mile.  This will be the rate taken into consideration in drafting the budget.


ADJOURNED:  Jordan moved to adjourn at 4:55 p.m.  Unanimously approved.


Respectfully submitted,




Barbara Caverly
