1. Possible sale of the old sander from the F550.

3. We have the initial meeting for the Sand/ Salt Shed grant on April 2.

4. I got pricing for the white lines on the Class 2 Roads. It is $9,825 from L&D Safety Marking, and $7368 from Poirier Line Marking.

5. I have a proposal for the engineering of the Kenny Pond Dam from Bell Engineering. I am currently researching grants that may be available.

Thank You,

Jay Wilson Road Foreman

ADMINISTRATIVE ASSISTANT’S REPORT
April 1, 2019

There have been 2 complaints of trash being dumped on the Dover Road Gravel pit area. I spoke with Road Forman about this. And mentioned the possibility of putting in a (game) camera to see if this continues.

Melissa Brown has done some extensive research to determine the start of the Grants in questions from last Selectboard meeting. In order to move the funds into a higher paying interest accounts. And she is here tonight to answer any questions.

I have received a letter from Mr. (Piet) van Loon just this afternoon, expressing interest in the vacancy to the NEWFANE DEVELOPMENT REVIEW BOARD.

Respectfully Submitted
Wannetta Powling
