RECAP TOWN COUNCIL WORKSHOP & MEETING – JULY 1ST-- by Larry Fillmore


Last night’s workshop and meeting was epic.  I am really proud of the decisions made at these events.

First and foremost, Mrs. Diane Barnes was sworn in as our new Town Manager.  Welcome aboard Mrs. Barnes.

Under Good New & Recognition – The Lisbon Emergency Service recognized Sergeant Stewart and Officer McGee for saving the life of one of our citizens by immediately applying CPR upon their arrival.  Their training and professionalism were the reason this individual is alive today.  Great job Sergeant Stewart and Officer McGee!

Under Council Orders, Resolutions and Ordinances – The council voted 5-0 to approve the Amendment to Part II Town Council Rules, Regulations and Policies Sec. 86-42.  Also the Council voted 5-0 to name the cemetery located on map R8 lot 9  Blake Cemetery.  The council also approved the closure of a number of roads for the Moxie Festival by a vote of 5-0.  The Council spent time in the workshop discussion the new Fee Schedule and during the meeting approved the Fee Schedule by a vote of 5-0.  The Council voted Councilor Mark Lunt and Sarah Hall to MMA’s Legislative Policy Committee by a vote of 5-0.  Also, the Council awarded the Striping Contract to Lucas Striping by a vote of 5-0.

I cannot provide you much information on the Energy Service Contract because Mr. Ryan Leighton did not provide any documentation to the people to follow along with. 

Under Other Business – The Council discussed Mr. Richard Nedeau's suggestion to have the GPS Program for Alzheimer’s patients and bicycle theft used in Lisbon.  After a short discuss, the Council passed this suggestion on to Chief Brooks for a recommendation.

Under Appointments – Mrs. Lori Pomeleau was reappointed to the Finance Committee and Mrs. Diane Barnes was appointed to the AVCOG General Assembly Representative and the AVCOG/ATRC Policy Committee Regular.

Under Council Communications – Chairwoman Ward stated that if the Council does not approve a budget before the end of the month; taxes will go up 7%.  Councilor Pesce recommended a workshop on July 8th.  Chairwoman ward wants to vote on the budget on July 15, 2014 regardless of what happens during the workshop.
