5. Explanation for Tax Acquired Lot in Sandy Bay: After the Board of Selectmen agreed to put out to bid the tax-acquired lot in Sandy Bay, information came forward which indicates the lot is actually part of another, existing lot, and therefore cannot be sold. I will attempt to explain this complicated matter to the Board at this next meeting.

6. FY2003-2004 Municipal Budget & Updated Budget Schedule: It has taken longer than anticipated to get this draft budget to the Board. It will be available for your review at the meeting. The Board will have both meetings in March and the first meeting in April to review this draft and to make your changes prior to it being reviewed by the Municipal Budget Committee. I plan to send the draft budget to the budget committee members, with the explanation that an updated version will be given to them after the Selectmen finish their review. With the school superintendent’s help, I plan to have an updated budget schedule for the board, as well.

I plan to give the Board of Selectmen an overview of the total budget picture at the meeting, and I recommend that the Board members take this draft home with them to review and to then work through line-by-line beginning with the March 19 meeting.

7. Resolution of Support – Piscataquis County Bonding Legislation: The attached draft legislation is being put forward as emergency legislation, sponsored by Senator Paul Davis. I recommend that the Board of Selectmen for Greenville adopt a resolution of support for this legislation. If enacted, major economic development projects could be funded by the entire county, which would be fairer than having only certain municipalities fund the same as the entire county benefits from significant job growth.

8. Letter of Support – Legislative Document 1052, “An Act to Authorize a General Fund Bond Issue in the Amount of $5,800,000 To Adequately Fund the Applied Technology Development Centers in order to increase the Number of Research and Development Jobs and Companies in the State”: This LD would capitalize the seven different applied technology incubator centers across the state, allowing $1,000,000 for the proposed Wood Composites Incubator Center in Greenville. It is possible that this bill would become part of a larger economic development bond package being forwarded by Governor Baldacci. These funds are above and beyond the federal funds we are planning on for construction of the center here in Greenville. If we were to receive any significant amount of funding through a State Bond, it would likely eliminate the need to borrow any funds for this project locally or county-wide. I strongly recommend that the Board of Selectmen endorse this bond legislation.

9. Town Manager’s Third-year Review: At the previous meeting of the Board of Selectmen, the Board agreed to review the form used to review the Manager at this meeting. Once this form is altered to everyone’s satisfaction, I believe the Board’s intention at the last meeting was to use the new form to complete the review individually and to have the results turned in to the Chairman, who would compile them and then meet with me to share the results.
