Board of Selectmen shorts
The Carlisle Board of Selectmen issued the following decisions during meetings on August 25 and September 8:
• Pathways maintenance. A group will meet to develop guidelines for the maintenance of pathways in town to include members from the Bicycle/Pedestrian Safety committee, DPW Superintendent Gary Davis and Selectman Peter Scavongelli.
• Hanover Hill easement. The Selectmen unanimously voted to approve an amended non-exclusive pathway easement on Hanover Hill. The change moves the pathway closer to the road to improve pedestrian visibility and safety.
• Film project at Town Hall. Ben Brewer, a senior at Emerson College, received unanimous Selectmen approval to use a room on the second floor of Town Hall on Sunday, October 4, to film a parole hearing scene from his thesis film entitled “Beneath Contempt.” The filming will involve about six crew members and five actors, and take up to five hours.
• Community meetings allowed. The Selectmen approved use of a room at the Town Hall by the Concord-Carlisle Community Chest group on two Wednesday evenings: the first on October 14 for a regular meeting from 7-9 p.m., and the second on November 4 for an annual meeting from 6:30-9:30 p.m. The Selectmen also approved future meetings by the ham radio operators group.
• Assurance Technology logistics. The Selectmen who verbally approved the project on South Street – Timothy Hult, John Williams, and Bill Tice – must sign the final paperwork. The three would be present at the Town Administration review scheduled for Monday, August 31, and could sign the papers then.
• Feasibility study qualified for reimbursement. Lee Storrs reported for the School Committee that the state will reimburse the town at a 40% rate for its 2006 study. Town Treasurer Larry Barton will receive training on the reimbursement system and will apply. The current schematic design study underway will have four committee components: Technology, Design, Management and Communications. Storrs hopes to present the next phase of the proposed project at a winter Town Meeting. He welcomes ideas and input from people in town. ∆
