Parks/Recreation/Cemeteries Budget – Cathie Goebel said there was a slight increase in the hourly maintenance cost and for Marlboro Beach.  There was a brief discussion about why the budget for Lamoine Beach and Bloomfield Park were proposed to be less than the current year.  It was determined no mowing is needed at Marlboro Beach.
