To realize cost savings, the Board of Selectmen have decided to reduce the staffing at the Town Office from three to two over the course of the next three months.  At that time, the board will review the service provided to the town and make a decision if the changes will become permanent. There will be no changes to the office hours during this period.

TOWN OF JONESPORT
SELECTMEN’S MEETING MINUTES

Date: Jan. 27, 2016 Time: 4:00 p.m.

Place: Town Office, 70 Snare Creek Lane

Opened by: Selectman Alley and Fish

Attended by: Irene Rogers, Assistant to the Board of Selectmen and Nancy Beal


Approval of Minutes: Jan. 20, 2016 Selectmen’s Meeting: Motion to accept by S Fish, Seconded by Alley, all in favor. Approved.


  1. Signatures:

A. Warrant

B. Payroll


OLD BUSINESS:


  1. Working Waterfront Access Committee: Selectman Fish met with Tom Linscott, George Powell’s replacement, in Augusta. Tom feels there is a way to work out details to get the Marina turned over to the Town. He stressed the fact that recreational access had to be in the proposal. Even after a plan is in place, a 2/3 vote is needed from the Legislature. The Working Waterfront Access Committee needs to write a letter to the State setting forth a plan for use of the Marina once it is Town owned.


  1. TIF: No update. It will be placed on the agenda for next week.


  1. BikeME: On February 4th, there is training and a reception. A motion was made by Selectman Milliken and seconded by Selectman Alley to have Irene attend the functions with Selectman Fish so that both will have knowledge of the plans for the September ride through.


  1. Child and Family Opportunities Article: A discussion was held about whether to put an article in the Town Warrant for March. The Selectmen feel this is covered in Third Party requests and a separate article would not be necessary.


  1. Stream-Smart Road Crossing Workshop: Where the Town is applying for a Culvert Grant, it was brought up if any one of the Selectmen needed to attend this workshop on April 12th in Whitneyville. Irene was directed to contact Crystal Hitchings and ask her.


  1. Roads in West Jonesport: Selectman Alley reported on the plans to repair the roads and will have costs associated with the project next week.


  1. MDOT: The proper signage, for which the Town has received a bill, is in place.


  1. MMA Workshop: The Selectmen voted to pay expenses associated with the Town Moderator Workshop to be held February 3rd for Jan McMichen. The fee for attendance is $110., as she is not a member associated with MMA.
