New Business:

a. Review of Draft 2020 Warrant
Kim Gendreau, Chairman of the Library Trustees approached the Board to discuss the articles on the warrant related to the library building. The first article was on roof repairs. The Trustees received three (3) quotes regarding the roof repairs. The Trustees were seeking the Board's support in presenting their article. The Board reminded the Trustees they would need to go back out to bid once the article was approved. The Board also recommended when writing the article to cite $35,000 to cover contingencies for the roof repairs, etc.

The second article the Library Trustees presented was explained to the Board that it is was for the replacement of the back door (including handicap accessibility, fire retention, platform, stairs to driveway) for $11,200 (paper quote), and painting of the buildings trim for $6,000 (verbal quote). This is needed to bring that exit up to fire code.

The Board asked the Town Administrator to ask the Treasurer her recommendations on using Capital Improvements account for funding of both articles.

The Board reviewed the draft 2020 warrant articles. More follow up is needed. This item will remain under unfinished business.

b. The Town Administrator informed the Board that the Rescue Chief requested a workshop with the Board to discuss some ideas she had and seek the Board's support before developing further. The Board will meet with her on Tuesday, February 7, 2020 at 5:30 pm.
