3. Snowmobile Program Update – Paul Arno Fichtner: I have asked Paul to meet with the Board and give an update on the program. The season is nearly over, and Paul has some insight for how to run the program next year. I have found Paul to be very cooperative and very professional in his work as the coordinator for this program this season. I hope he will consider working in this capacity again next year.

4. Moosehead Garden Club Presentation: The attached letter from the Moosehead Garden Club requests a meeting with the Board of Selectmen regarding Thoreau Park. The Garden Club has worked for years keeping this park looking good each spring and summer season. I have discussed with the club members different ideas for how to revitalize the park, and I originally thought we could acquire a Plum Creek Foundation grant for this project. I was advised by Plum Creek that this type of project would likely not be funded by the foundation. I believe a more apt grant source would be the MDOT Gateway Grant Program, which recently funded the Town for its Junction Welcome Sign project, which will occur this summer. The Town could apply for funds for this revitalization project in January 2005 for work to be done next spring. Funds should be considered for the budget being built now to revitalize this park: if the MDOT grant is funded, these funds might be more than matched.

7. Posted Weight Limit Ordinance: This traffic ordinance may be adopted by the municipal officers following a public hearing. This ordinance will strengthen the enforcement of the road weight limits posted by orange posters on townways. It will also allow permits to be issued by the Board of Selectmen to allow passage over posted roads by heavy vehicles.
