Agreement with MDOT – Traffic Light – Stu reported he had e-mailed the revised proposed agreement with MDOT to the Selectmen prior to the meeting for review. He said that after reading this version, this was what the board had in mind and recommended approval. Bernie moved to authorize the Chair to sign the agreement, Jo 2nd . Vote in favor was 4-0 (Mason not yet present).

After substantial discussion, the board agreed to try to draft into ordinance as follows:

Water testing/quality matters were not discussed but will be at a future date.

Stu said it was his understanding that he would attempt to integrate the goals identified above into ordinance as a draft for review. Selectmen said that was correct. Stu said he doubted that it would be ready for the regular meeting in a week, unless time permitted. He stressed this would be the first of what would likely be many drafts.

There being no further business, the meeting adjourned at 8:00 PM.

Stu Marckoon, Adm. Asst. to the Selectmen
