6. Ordinance Development: There are three ordinances to be considered by the Board of Selectmen (drafts attached). The Road Weight Limit Ordinance is actually a parking ordinance, and may be adopted by the Board of Selectmen following a public hearing. The Rubbish Collection Ordinance requires Town Meeting Action with 45 days notice. The new thresholds for the General Assistance Ordinance require action by the Board of Selectmen following a public hearing. I recommend a public hearing be scheduled for all three for the beginning of the next Selectmen’s meeting (March 17 – 6:30 PM). The Board also needs to approve the language for these ordinances and amendments.

8. Senior Celebration and Safety Awareness Day: In an effort to celebrate our senior population, as well as to make this population better aware of the Town’s emergency services, I recommend the Town sponsor a “Senior Celebration and Safety Awareness Day”. I will discuss the details with the Board, but I recommend this project as a grant-fundable, multi-partner project which could happen this summer. I am requesting the Board of Selectmen’s endorsement of this project, which needs further development.

9. Update on Junction Wharf Project and Advisory Committee Appointment: The Junction Wharf requires reconstruction. A plan to do so was completed in 2001 (attached). I have identified various funding sources which will pay for the estimated reconstruction costs. I recommend the Board of Selectmen authorize the creation of an advisory committee specific to the Junction Wharf (previously, there was an advisory committee for the revitalization of the entire Junction area). There is great need for public input as the specifics of the junction wharf project are defined. It is my aim to have the funding for this project secured in 2004 for construction in 2005.

10. Fourth of July Planning Committee: The Town and the Chamber of Commerce annually sponsor the Independence Day celebration from the Junction Wharf activities to the parade to fireworks. Typically, Town employees and Chamber employees complete most of the work necessary to make this celebration happen. I recommend that a planning committee be formed by the Town and the Chamber to increase the capacity to organize this event, and to add ideas to it.

11. Letter to Piscataquis and Somerset County Commissioners, requesting Cost-Sharing Participation in the Airport Improvement Program: The Town will need approximately $75,000 for the local share for the runway reconstruction in 2005. To accomplish this, I recommend the Town seek a general obligation bond with commitments from both Somerset and Piscataquis Counties to contribute a share to this annual debt service. The attached letters request a meeting with each commission to discuss the airport runway project and to request a cost-sharing arrangement. I am working with our attorney to develop specific language for the agreement. What I have yet to specify is the cost-share to request from each county. I will have some possible percentages for the Board to consider at the meeting.
