Members present: Larissa Thomas, chairwoman; Kerry Diskin, Diane Nicholls, Linda Penkalski, Jack Robichaud


Alternate member present: Mike Jordan


Alternate member absent: Diana Cassel


Meeting was convened at the Lamoine Town Hall by Chairwoman Thomas at    7:00 PM.


Topics Discussed:


1.  Approval of the September 8, 2021 minutes.


2.  Marlboro Beach traffic management project: Richard McMullen will be putting down the boulders at the cross roads.  He has enough boulders for the project.  Signs have been ordered.  We may only need posts for the signs.  Kerry and/or Mike might be able to go to Marlboro Beach tomorrow when the boulders will be placed at the cross roads.  Larissa will ask Stu to make an announcement on Facebook once the boulders are placed announcing the closure of the cross roads.  It was suggested that reflective tape or caution tape be wrapped around the boulders so they are more visible.


3.  Remote meetings policy: We voted to approve the acceptance of the Lamoine Board of Selectmen’s Remote Participation Policy with one edit.  Removal in paragraph two of or an illness or temporary absence of a member that causes significant difficulty traveling to the meeting location. 


4.  Coastal cleanup recap: There was moderate participation this year.  The shore was pretty clean compared to past years.  Lots of shoes were found!


5.  GET WET! Blunts Pond water testing and the Simon Trail Tree Walk: A special thank you to all of our volunteers- Jeff Cosulich, Jack Robichaud, Diane Nicholls, Iris Simon, Carol Duffy and Diana Cassel.  We had beautiful weather.  The students were very enthusiastic and excited to be doing real science.  Hopefully we will be able to do the GET WET! testing of the student’s well water in the spring and possibly outdoors as last May.


Motions and Outcomes:


1.  The minutes of the September 8, 2021 meeting were approved as distributed.
