· Ronald Rivard, Superintendent of Cemeteries – updated the Selectmen on the work he has begun with regards to maintaining the Veteran’s cemeteries. The fence has been repaired at the Ham/Crockett cemetery on Back Road. A suggestion was made for the BOS to speak to the contracted winter plowing contractor prior to winter 2018 to put some sort of protection in front of the fence and to see if the contractor could make some adjustment when plowing around that area. Ron discussed possibly updating our tax maps with the symbol indicating the location of where a cemetery is located. The BOS thought this was a great idea. Ron will follow up. The BOS granted permission for Ron to cut a few branches from the 2 trees by the Veterans monument. The crew that will be assisting Ron this year with the maintenance are: Curtis Mills, Dick Langlais, Steve Parallo and if needed Jay Carter and Tracy Levasseur.
· Art Ingersoll, Transfer Station employee presented to the BOS a sketch of a fabricated work platform to be fabricated to be used at the Transfer Station.
