Guests

Bob Prentice’s from Creative Solutions reported the website is ready to do a soft launch. He has two videos. Things can be changed at anytime and the pictures can be changed to fit the season. The Historic Society gave permission to use their pictures.

Ryan from Dickinson Land Survey talked to the town about making new maps for the town. Patrick will meet with him to discuss what the town needs and report back to the board.

Maintenance

Alan reported Richard is planning on mowing one more time. He has been working on roads and has all the new street signs up.

Patrick showed the board a picture of the collapsed sewer line between Stockham and Mckinstry. Todd Blochowitz has been called and will get to it as soon as he can. This may start happening throughout the town because of our ageing infrastructure. The board needs to start a plan to replace perhaps a little each year over the next few years. One option is to blow melted PVC in to the pipes to coat.

 

The lead and copper test taken last month came back good. 

 

The board is considering improvements to the lift station. They may put a designated amount of money in the budget this year and continue improvements each year after until the town is in compliance.
