2017-06-15 Board Meeting Minutes

The meeting was called to order at 7:05 PM by Bobby Vrba. Present were board members Paul Garabedian, Bobby Vrba, Boyd Brown and Rick Geesaman. Rich Lopez was absent, and excused. Chief Finn was absent. Also in attendance was Val Crist.

Motion was made to adopt the minutes of April meeting; motion was unanimously passed.

There was no May meeting due to the dump of three feet of snow shutting down town for a few days.

There was no “Chief’s Report” since Chris Finn did not show up for the meeting.

The only item of business was an update about the proposed frack tank/cistern project to be located in the Town Meadow. Don Ash of Scott Cox and Associates sent a project scope document, and an estimate for the engineering design and permitting (including surveying). A motion was made to accept the proposal, and authorize the expenditure of up to $20,000 to that end. The motion was unanimously passed.

Meeting was adjourned at 7:30 PM. Next meeting will be on Thursday, July 20th, 2017 at 7:00 PM.

Bobby Vrba then opened the board meeting for the Gold Hill Volunteer Fire Department pension fund. Bobby led the short discussion. He stated that we had until the end of June to get our account opened up with the initial $2000 deposit in order to qualify for matching funds available next year. Bobby will contact our lawyer, to make sure where we are allowed to open the account for the fund. Once this is resolved we will open the account, and deposit a check from the fire department.

Next meeting of the Pension board will be following the fire board meeting on September 21st, 2017.

Respectfully submitted,

Rick Geesaman
