2. Additions / Deletions to the Agenda & Public Comment:

3. Presentation by United-Kingfield Bank: Recently, United-Kingfield acquired all of the deposits of the Border Trust Bank in Greenville, including those of the Town. Linda Gilbert, Branch Manager, and Jeff Smith, President of United-Kingfield Bank, would both like to meet with the Board of Selectmen and answer any questions the Board may have regarding this transition. Also, the Board had previously voted to go to bid for banking services: considering this current change, I recommend that the Town NOT go to bid any time soon. It does not make sense to me as Treasurer to seek a second transition after a first. I have been very impressed with United-Kingfield Bank to date, and feel the Town should give them a chance.

4. Presentation by Gerry Whiting of the Appalachian Mountain Club (AMC) on their recent land purchase: The AMC has recently purchased about 38,000 acres of land 10 miles east of Greenville in the Gulf Hagas / Chairback Gap region. This land surrounds Little Lyford Camps, which AMC bought previously. Gerry and his peers at AMC, including the full Board of Directors and the Executive Director for this nationwide organization, have shown great interest in learning about the future plans for the Town of Greenville and our community and economy, and to try to adjust their project to best complement our efforts. Gerry has asked to brief the Board of Selectmen on AMC’s project. I urge the Board to review the conservation project considerations I have previously prepared as you evaluate this proposal.

7. Rubbish / Landfill Issues: At the last meeting of the Board, the Selectmen discussed several issues regarding rubbish pickup and removal, as well as future requirements for the landfill. The Chairman has asked that this topic be again placed on the agenda and that a course of action be selected at this meeting. The various options are listed in the minutes of the previous meeting (Dec. 22, 2003).

9. Public Works Ton Truck: I have asked Public Works Foreman Mike Thornton to be present to discuss this issue. The “One-Ton” 1997 F-350 plow truck owned by the Town is wearing out, and I think the Board of Selectmen should consider replacing it. Mike will further explain the various repairs we have made on it in the past year. I think it would be in the Town’s best interest to get something newer while (a) this vehicle still has some significant trade-in value, and (b) before we lose more time repairing instead of operating this truck. I will have data for the Board regarding the current value of our equipment reserve accounts. If the Board wishes to trade this vehicle, I recommend doing so as the Board has with the replacement of the two larger plow trucks: pool funds from the various equipment reserve accounts and make the purchase directly without additional appropriation or bonding. With the trade-in value, I am confidant we would be able to do so. As the trustees for the reserve accounts, the municipal officers have the authority to make such expenditures.
