LIVERMORE — The Board of Selectpersons on Tuesday night agreed by consensus to move forward on a snowplow turnaround agreement for affected properties.

“Each landowner where town equipment turns around would need to sign an agreement,” Administrative Assistant Amy Byron said.

Byron and Road Foreman Roger Ferland met and quickly came up with 25 property owners who should have a written agreement with the town, Byron said.

Byron had attended a workshop, Municipal Law for Town and City Managers, which highlighted the need for towns to have the written turnaround agreements. 

Town attorney Lee Bragg has reviewed the agreement and made recommendations that would protect the town and property owners, Byron said.

The agreement would list the following information about the property: owner’s name, property address, lot number and tax map. The agreement would be signed by the property owner and selectpersons.

The agreement would automatically extend to the next year. If either the town or the property owner should wish to rescind the agreement, it would have to be done in writing prior to June 30, Byron said.

Byron will approach each of the 25 landowners about completing one of the agreements. Each landowner would come before the Board of Selectpersons for the necessary signatures.
