Duffy Gold spoke to the BOS regarding the York County Public Transit Forum meeting that was held in Kennebunk. This was a very informative meeting. A major concern is the rural communities suffer from lack of public transportation. Varies towns shared needs and worked on long range transportation plans. The public forum was hosted by: Age-Friendly committees of Kennebunk, Saco, OOB, Biddeford, Kennebunk, Maine DOT, York County Community Action Corp, Southern Maine Planning & Development and Biddeford-Saco-OOB Transit.
Duffy Gold discussed the Public Building Budget or the fact the Budget Committee has not received a budget. If there is no budget who will make the decision for the operating budget for 2019. Chairman Mageary stated based on policy the Selectmen would establish that budget. A meeting will be scheduled with the Fire Chief, Rescue Chief of Service and the EMA Director to establish the 2019 operating budget for the public safety building.
1. Cost of Educational Classes/Rescue – Chairman Mageary read the response from MMA legal regarding entering into a loan agreement with an employee of the Town. Basically, without voter approval the Selectmen do not have that authority. Jennifer J. Roux mentioned that she met with the Treasurer to review the Rescue Squad’s donation account along with the warrant article establishing the Charles Gruber Memorial Scholarship fund. Michael S. Perro also commented that in the past many Rescue members received their educational expenses paid for by the Town for exchange for services. Motion made by Jennifer J. Roux, Seconded by Michael S Perro to support the request as long as the Selectmen review the service agreement and how long the members must stay on the squad to honor the commitment for service to the Town. Funding for this request will be from the Rescue donation account. This will be tabled pending further information. No further discussion. Motion passed.
2. Invoice for Educational Materials – The Rescue Chief emailed the BOS why the 8 CPR/First Aid sets were ordered and received. Chairman Mageary stated that based on policy he felt that prior to ordering these materials a purchase order should have been submitted to the BOS. Lindsey Lacourse explained that for materials such as these there is only one company the Town can order from. The materials are very specific to training. Michael S. Perro felt this purchase was part of their normal operating budget and wouldn’t need a purchase order. At this time the Selectmen approved the invoice for payment. Further follow up will be discussed with the Rescue Chief.
