  1. The Board expressed their gratitude to Camila Devlin for her time serving as Bradford’s Town Clerk/Tax Collector and wish her the best of luck moving forward.
  2. Review of phone conversation with Jay Barrett: John updated those present on his conversation with Jay Barrett. Jay and Harry Wright continue to work with LCHIP on funding. Jay feels strongly that it is not necessary for the Town to engage a Clerk of the Works. He believes that the Town’s interests are covered in its contract with him and in its contract with Trumbull-Nelson, and that a Clerk of the Works would be an additional, unnecessary expense. Motion to move forward with the project without a Clerk of the Works, vote 3-0 in favor. There will be a work session November 28th at 9:00am in the Community Center. Notice has been posted on the Town website, in the Community Center and at the Post Office.
