The Selectmen advised him the town will cut the curb and will pave the apron only when the sidewalks are done. Also the Selectmen advised they would not cut them off prior to getting his driveway done. Mr. Starr was also advised if he wants the screen house he may have it or what ever he wishes to do with it.

A group of volunteers worked for about 5 hours on Saturday and on Sunday, September 12th and 13th cleaning out the infiltration trenches and constructing terraced vegetated buffers on the wooded slope in between the swimming beach and the rock slope leading into the water. The terraced beds are still a work in progress and Bindy Glennie will be overseeing the planting and final stabilization of the slope.
Three requests were also made:
1. Requesting the State Correctional work program to send out a crew to finish cleaning out the sediment that the infiltration trenches have collected at French’s Park.
2. Asking if the Road Crew would be able to delineate the handicap access walkway by constructing a stone wall between walkway and parking area. Also level the handicap parking spot so storm water flows into rain garden and not over the handicap pathway. Also to add a triangular patch of 3-inch stone at corner of parking lot that leads to entrance to culvert.
Steve Lucier, Road Agent advised that the sidewalks that are being torn up by the State Correctional Workers is working out well, and they will probably be done with that project by Friday.
The consensus of the Selectmen is to finish up completely with the sidewalks and the town hall parking area with the Correctional Workers prior to going to French’s Park to work.
Charles Meany, Chair questioned Steve Lucier, Road Agent as to what the road crew was taking for time for their lunch break. Steve advised that forty five minutes is being taken as they use their 15 minutes from their morning break adding it to their 30 minutes scheduled lunch break. Jack Meaney advised that this is not permitted by law, to which Steve Lucier, Road Agent stated that he’d like to go on record as saying this is a stupid law, that this is not a metropolitan area we are talking about, but a 5 member road crew. It was once again reiterated that this is not allowed by law and cannot be done by all three selectmen.
Steve Lucier, Road Agent also advised Danny’s town highway truck is having problems and keeps shutting off. It is now at Reed’s in Claremont and Steve was requested to get an estimate of the cost of repairs before being worked on and to call Cheryl Behr, Administrator with the amount.
Also discussed were different companies providing salt and their delivered prices.

Call to Order and Roll Call:
Charles Meany, Chair called the meeting to order at 5:30pm with Jack Meaney, Peter Fenton, Cheryl Behr, Administrator, Marilyn Gordon, Treasurer and Marge Cilley, Secretary present.
Mr. and Mrs. Willard came before the Selectmen to express their concerns regarding the Bement Bridge roof. The Willard’s live close to the bridge, at 15 Center Road and presently there is a lot of thunderous noise when vehicles go over the bridge, being heaviest at dinner time and around 5am. The concern is if the wooden roof is removed and a metal roof put on, will that increase the amplification of noise. Also, what would rain on the roof be like? Charles Meany, Chair advised noise generated from the bridge has ever been discussed previously. Charles Meany also advised he is on the Road Committee, and he will bring this up at their next meeting which will be held on Wednesday, October 28, 2009 at 6:00pm. Mrs. Willard advised they have adjusted with the present level of noise; however, much more could be very distracting.
Barbara French, a Lake Massasecum resident for 80 years, read a letter to the Selectmen into the minutes (Letter on file) regarding her appreciation of Steve Lucier’s help in the milfoil harvesting in Lake Massasecum as well as putting the netting in and out of the lake, monitoring of lake water level, control of beavers, as well as maintaining of roads.
Charles Meany, Chair thanked Barbara French for her letter and advised he will see that the letter does go into the personal file of Steve Lucier.
Phil LaMoreaux, Chair of the Bradford Planning Board wrote a letter to the Selectmen regarding property at 2524, Route 103, which was read by Cheryl Behr, Administrator. This letter refers to Mosiac Artiques which is in violation of the Town of Bradford Zoning Ordinance. The owner, Carol Demers has been contacted to file a Site Plan, which has not been done.
Motion was made by Jack Meaney, to forward a letter to Ms. Demers, owner of Mosiac Artiques advising her that the violation of the Zoning Ordinance has been brought to the Selectmen’s attention and she needs to attend the November 10th meeting of the Planning Board, or this will be referred to legal counsel.
In response to a question from Jack Meaney, the Highway Garage Heating concern was to be looked at around 4:00pm today per Cheryl Behr, Administrator.
Phil LaMoreaux congratulated the Selectmen on the upgrade of the town hall parking lot.
Motion was made to table the Minutes of October 15th, 2009 until missing information has been transcribed. Seconded by Jack Meaney. Motion carried 3-0.
Accounts Payable and Payroll manifests were reviewed and signed.
All highway vehicles have been inspected except for the L8000 Ford which is being done now with a clutch assembly, plow linkage, exhaust problems and transmission and tail lights and fuel pump problems per Jack Meaney. The total cost for the inspection readiness of the highway vehicles is estimated to be around $5,000. Jack Meaney advised there is not going to be enough motor oil for heating. Sources other than the dump will be checked into, and James will be asked to check this out. Jack Meaney also advised that prisoners are working at French’s park cutting brush etc.
A speed limit sign will be checked into being installed at Bement Bridge for 30 miles per hour. Also, the bridge needs to be rated for a weight limit. This will be noted at the next Road Committee meeting.
Radios were discussed for now and in the future. A Communications fund should be set up. Mention was made of Henniker Septic flushing out a collapsed culvert up Cochran Hill. Peter Fenton expressed seeing if someone else could do the same thing.
Ann Eldridge and Bruce McCandlish appeared before the Selectmen regarding continuation of an Easement at the Battles Farm property. Ann explained that the opportunity has come up for an LCHIP Grant in the amount of one hundred ninety five dollars ($195,000) which has been applied for. Ann explained that there would be a permanent deed restriction on the property, which guarantees public access to the property, down Jewett Road and in the forestry area. The flood control on the property would stay intact. Two things that would be changed are: There would not be a separate house lot on the property and there would be access for hunting. The property is for sale now. Conversation ensued. Ann advised Senate Bill #381 clarifies legal confusion that has been going on for years. Senate Bill #381 basically authorizes the town money to be used (Conservation money) for a qualified non profit agency such as land trust, per Ann Eldridge.
Part time Police Officer appointment letter signed.
In regard to the Fire Fence at the Way property, the Town Atty advised if there were an issue, the town could be sued for the liability. The fence will be taken care of by the Town per the Selectmen, and Cheryl Behr, Administrator will contact the fence contractor to have it installed.
The following letter written by the Selectmen was read into the minutes by Cheryl Behr, Administrator
Mr. Andrew Pinard, School Board Representative, Bradford, New Hampshire
The Board of Selectmen understands the challenges of budgeting in this economic climate. For this reason, we wish to express our concerns with the school budget submitted will not show any increase over last year.
