MEXICO — Selectmen met in an executive session late Tuesday night to discuss a Recreation Department personnel matter.

The board and Town Manager John Madigan entered into the closed session at 7:35 p.m. with Dawson Walton, director of the fitness center. A few minutes later, Recreation Director Chris Sevigny entered the session and Walton left soon after.

At 7:55 p.m., the Recreation Center’s custodian, Raymond Vaillancourt, entered the discussion.

The board, Sevigny and Vaillancourt were still meeting at 8:30 p.m.

According to the agenda, the board was scheduled to go into another closed session later in the meeting with Police Chief James Theriault to discuss a police complaint.

In a related matter, a third scheduled executive session had been planned to discuss a police grievance. That session was postponed until the Oct. 23 board meeting when the department’s union representative could be present.

In other matters at Tuesday’s meeting, Madigan updated the board on several road issues, including the completion of the Leavitt Street paving project.

They also approved spending about $20,000 to resurface Oxford Street and another $600 to patch cracked sealing on a section of Ledgeview Avenue.

Selectmen also volunteered to personally donate $60 to the Mountain Valley Middle School Renaissance Program, and received a request from RSU 10 to make comments on a multimillion dollar federal grant the district is applying for.

The board also:

* appointed Calvin Lyons as the election warden for the Nov. 6 vote;

* accepted a $41,000 state snow machine grant and appointed Nicholas Brown as the project director; and

* announced a Halloween Walk at the Recreation Center for Oct. 26 and 27. Events begin at 6 p.m.
