ยท Roland Legere approached the Board to update his understanding of the site visit which took place at Goose Pond Channel. Since this is the Board's first point of order under unfinished business, update is stated there.

Unfinished Business:
1. Goose Pond Channel Site Visit

A site visit was held with Mr. Roland Legere, the property owner and Mr. Terry Pearsall. With the lowering of Mousam Lake, it is a good opportunity to have this project done. The Road Commissioner indicated to Mr. Legere that he has constraints on his time. Further comments were that it would need 2 pieces of equipment to do the job correctly. Mr. Legere is willing to pay the $430 for permitting and application paperwork if he has the Town's support. Mr. Legere also noted that someone with DEP certification to oversee project. This has been an ongoing situation but it is now urgent with the lowering of the water levels to get the sand removed and reworking the drainage ditch. Foot traffic along the private property adds to the erosion. Discussion ensued regarding project details and ownership of work and costs. The Board of Selectmen will seek out legal opinion regarding doing work on private property (noting that situation has been created from the runoff on the roads) and then meet with the Road Commissioner. Meeting has been set for Friday, October 18, 2019 at 8 am. Mr. Legere asked to be informed of the outcome of the meeting to proceed with permitting; permit needs to be in property owner's name.

3. Transfer Station Gate and Hours

Selectmen Scott E. Cudworth asked if resident's were permitted to go past the gate when the dump is closed. Chairman Michael S. Perro stated this practice was encouraged so that household trash would not be stockpiled at the gate.
