This is a summary of what took place at last’s Special Town Council meeting.  Two Councilors were absent Councilor Garrison and Bickford.  The following were under Council Orders, Resolutions and Ordinances: 

1.     Public Hearing for Charter Changes – The Council set a date of September 17, 2015 for a Public Hearing on the proposed Charter Changes by a Vote of 5-0.
2.    Town Office Roof – The Council authorized the Public Works Director to go out to bid for lifetime shingles and a metal roof by a vote of 5-0.
3.    Oil Tank Disposal – The Council approved the disposal of four oil tanks by any means possible by a vote of 5-0.

This was all the Town Council discussed.  At this point the Council adjourned and move to a Special Workshop with members of the School Board to try and resolve the differences in the School Budget.

The workshop lasted approximately an hour and nothing was accomplished.  Members of the Council asked questions and offered recommendations and the School Board answered the questions and tried to explain why cuts could not be made in the recommended areas.  The School Board offered no cuts and explained the current cuts. Members of the School Board became frustrated and ended with Mr. Reed acting very non-professional, crumpled up his papers and threw them on the floor on his way out the door.  Chairman Pesce ended the workshop at this point.
