Call to Order: The meeting was called to order by Bob Horr, Chair at 7:05 PM.


Other Business:

1. Response to Town Clerk/Treasurer: A letter was written regarding the Town Clerk/Treasurer’s request for a performance review. As she is an elected official, the Selectboard is not required to conduct a performance review. The Board reviewed the letter, and agreed to sign it.

2. Bylaw Revisions: The bylaws need to be approved and the town map needs to be signed. Please see the motion below.

I (Bill) move to accept the proposed Development Regulations and Zoning Map, as presented at the Public Hearing on January 31, 2011, to replace the existing Zoning Bylaws, and Subdivision Regulations and Official Zoning Map.

3. Garbage/Recycling Contract with Casella: The Board reviewed the new contract for garbage and recycling. They felt that there were still some areas that needed clarification. The signing of the contract will be tabled until further clarification can be written into the contract.

4. Unemployment Benefits: Bob has repeatedly tried to follow-up with the Vermont Unemployment Office regarding benefits to a former town employee - without success. Therefore, he will write a letter stating the prior communication and outcome of this case to the VUO and the adjudicator.

5. Franklin County Humane Society: An invoice was received from the FCHS for $75.00. It was for a dog that was brought to them back in October 2010.
