Legere reported to the Board regarding his attendance at the Mousam Lake
Watershed Improvement Project meeting. Roland informed the Board that inquiries
into Goose Pond's impact on the lake brought that project from 5th on the list
of priorities to be addressed to the top of the list. Hoping design phase will
be completed this Spring and project started this Summer. Once this project is
underway, the Town will be sought for support. That support piece will probably
be earlier than later, especially with respect to maintenance and sand clean up. Roland also commented that Shapleigh should
take pride in knowing that Shapleigh's Road Commissioner South, Jeff Goodwin
has been invaluable with this process.
