Administrative Assistant's Report

For meeting of May 17, 2012

This is a pretty short turnaround between meetings with the delayed meeting of Monday. Thankfully, there is not a lot that needs immediate attention.

I have a baseball game to ump in Ellsworth beginning at 3:30 PM. It will end no later than 5:45 which will give me plenty of time to be at your meeting. The weather has not been kind to baseball this spring.

Minutes Thanks as always for the extra eyes.

Warrant 22 A short one so far, but it'll be large as the school bill is on here. We potentially will have a paving bill, but I don't think that will hit until your first warrant in June. Tentatively, the paving will be done the week of May 14 th . I purchased some Cable TV gear at Radio Shack (microphones, and MP3 player to replace the CD player that has a fried motor).

Cash & Budget Report As of today (5/9), we're less than $20,000 behind on excise tax, and collections have been brisk. We're also sending out 30-day notices on property tax this week, so that will boost collections before liens are placed in June. Expenditure wise, we're doing OK.

Investment Management Report The electronic version is on line. I'll have a hard copy at the meeting if you wish to review it.

Checking Reconciliation You OK'd the reconciliation at the last meeting but I didn't have the printed form on which to sign off. I'll have that for this meeting.

RSU 24 Withdrawal Vote Let's discuss the format of the public hearing and the dissemination of campaign materials (briefly).

MUBEC I sent out the memo that will go to the Planning Board and got a thumbs up from two of you. I may hear back from the board after their workshop on May 15 th .

Commercial Trash Hauler Application I've spoken with Rusty and he should have the application in by the time of the meeting.

Roads Perry Fowler has installed two new culverts on Shore Road where the paving will take place the culverts that were removed had completely rotted after about 15-years. The new ones are plastic. As mentioned above, paving may take place next week.

Bureau of Labor Standards Compliance Report I've copied the report that is going into the Bureau of Labor Standards by the May 15 th deadline. We have addressed everything in the citation.

Contract me I appreciate you looking over the draft before blindly signing anything at the last meeting. I hope you get a chance to do it. If there are changes that need to be made, please let me know.

Appointment List There is a list of folks whose terms expire on June 30, 2012. I've not yet started to contact folks for reappointment.

Executive Session It's Bill's turn. Review sheets will be in your packet.

Enjoy this soggy weather.
