Map 4 Lots 48, 48-1 – The board prepared a letter to John Ranco with copies to Steve Joy and James Leavitt regarding ownership questions on the above referenced lots.
Abatement Request – Map 14 Lot 59-1 – The board reviewed the abatement application dated November 6, 2014. Terry declared that he is an abutting landowner and would abstain from voting on this matter. Michael moved to abate the value of the above referenced lot by $121,000, which is 90% of the original value deducted for use. The lot does not meet requirements to sustain a septic system, and a 20% deduction for vacancy. The motion passed 2-0 (Towne abstained). A letter was prepared for the applicant, Ms. Guinard, regarding the abatement.
