  1. Reviewed and dispersed mail; read and accepted minutes from previous meeting.
  2. Received a letter from Kirk Mahoney, State Historic Preservation Officer, stating that the Klir Beck House has been officially removed from the National Register. 
  3. Reviewed and signed Warrant #14— $28,484.51. 
  4. The selectmen filled out and signed the Maine Department of Transportation Local Road Assistance paperwork. The town will receive $24,000 to $26,000 in 2017 which will go to the Paving Account (as voted at town meeting).
  5. Chief Church reported that the bill for the rebuild of the pump on the fire engine was received and paid. The total for the bill is $13,647, which is about $3,000 less than the estimate. The truck was also inspected and pump tested—everything passed.
  6. Chief Church will be getting bids for resealing the parking lot at the Community Building/Fire Station.
  7. The Fire Department has applied for a grant from the (Stephen and Tabitha) King Foundation. If they receive the grant for replacement air bottles, that will enable them to get up to date on air tank certification.
  8. The Fire Chief and selectmen discussed chimney cleaning and the need for insurance. Neither the chief nor selectmen have been able to find an insurance policy to cover the firefighters (and the town) in this situation; therefore, they will be unable to clean chimneys for townspeople as firefighters with town equipment. Residents are encouraged to have their chimneys cleaned by professionals, or if possible, do it themselves.
  9. Selectmen signed the Bank Reconciliation report.
  10. Meeting Adjourned.
