Shorts from the selectmen, April 9

· Banta-Davis road improvement. Mark Spears of the Recreation Commissions requested permission to spend money originally budgeted for extension of the paved portion of the road to the Banta-Davis ballfield and insertion of two speed bumps. Currently dust from the road is interfering with baseball games and children are endangered by excessive speed. The selectmen approved $9,000 with construction to be completed in time for baseball to begin the week after school vacation.

· Two Rod Road Trail. Conservation commission administrator Sylvia Willard presented a document for the selectmen's signatures which allows The Trustees of the Reservations to maintain the Malcolm Meadows parking area as a trail head to Two Rod Road Trail leading into the Estabrook Woods. It also allows posting of a sign and bulletin board. The agreement was signed.

· Local official bond. A proposal for a $10,000 bond on the town clerk was approved with the stipulation that the town administrator check with other towns regarding the sufficency of the amount.

· "Circuit breaker." The "circuit breaker" article which would have set a limit on taxation of lower-income residents was withdrawn. Eleven signees withdrew their signatures noting the article needs further work to comply with tax laws.
