Waterford Board of Selectmen
May 8, 2017
Waterford Town Office
 
Letter to the sheriff
 
What happened: Code Enforcement Officer Bill Haynes is drafting a memo of understanding to the Oxford County Sheriff’s Office, advising that residents have allocated money for more police presence in town. 
 
What it means: A deputy will be stationed regularly around town this summer and fall to deal with speeding vehicles in residential areas. 
 
Town road naming
 
What happened: Resident Al Barden has been having issues with delivery drivers finding his residence on Weeks Farm Road. The road can be accessed from either Deer Hill Road or Temple Hill Road but both ends of Weeks Farm Road aren’t connected. He is asking the town if the name of the section he lives on can be changed.
 
What it means: Selectmen will look into the history of the road and whether the town has any ownership of it and if so, whether it can change the name. 
 
What’s next: Selectman John Bell will research the situation and contact Barden with his findings. 
 
Bidding continued
 
What happened: The town is extending bidding for the property at 17 Forgotten Alley off Bisbee Town Road in North Waterford. 
 
Recreation director
 
What happened: After a brief executive session, the position of Sports and Recreation director was offered to Jasmine Merrill. She will be sworn in at the next selectmen meeting.
