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. ∆
