Met: Tuesday

New computers needed

Issue: Board members approved $800 for police Chief Thomas Fales to buy a new laptop computer, which will replace his, which crashed. Money will come out of his department’s computer account.

Up next: Two countertop computers at town hall for the public are slowing down, which likely is the result of a failing server, and Road Foreman John Hyde requested an additional computer for his office. Town Manager Gregory Gill will look into finding a potential package deal to replace the old equipment.

Budget petition

Issue: Town resident Mara Duncan was scheduled to present a petition for reconsideration of budget items initially decided during the annual town meeting in May, including school expenses, to board members during Tuesday’s meeting. Duncan first introduced the petition in early June; however, after failing to amass enough signatures to force a subsequent vote, she informed selectmen that she would withdraw the petition.
