Selectmen’s meeting brief summary

July 16, 2013

All,
Sorry for the delay in getting this published.

1. Kings Bowling – They had a conflict and were not able to be present last evening. It has been rescheduled for August

2. Fields – fields committee made there presentation and suggested option 1. There was no firm decision on financing as this is important since option one is in excess of 5 million dollars

3. LIFE units – They will be paying a tax but were still discussing if they would be subject to the 2.5% increase or just to 1.5% a year.

More about the LIFE and Fields issue over the weekend.

Thanks again for your support

1. Kings Bowling will be applying for their bowling alley and common victualler license

2. The Report of the Recreation Park Advisory Committee (Fields Committee). Some people have suggested funding the 7.5 million cost with revenue from a cinema

3. LIFE financing plan and PILOT program -The group that will own and manage the 48 over 60 years age apartment. There may be a discussion of how much they should pay in taxes.
