4.                  Proposed FY10-11 Municipal Budget:  By the date of this meeting, the Board of Selectmen will have held budget workshop meetings with the Town Manager and selected department heads at least 5 times from February to April.  This year’s municipal budget has been complicated to create due to proposed changes to the structure of public works, and details of the closure plan for the landfill.  The goal of this year’s budget has been to hold the cost of government services to the property taxpayer constant this year as compared to last.  This budget proposal attempts to do so.  Upon approval by the Board of Selectmen this budget will be sent to the Budget Committee for recommendations: the budget committee is scheduled to meet at 6:30 PM April 27 and 29, 2010.

7.                  Associate Membership – Wilson Pond Association:     Ralph Johnson of the Wilson Pond Association has requested that the Town of Greenville consider paying $75 as an associate member of this road association in consideration for use of the road for public purposes such as hauling sand and gravel and police patrol.  Various contractors which use this road have already purchased this membership.  This is the only private road which the Town of Greenville’s Public Works Department has used on a regular basis over the years to haul gravel and sand.
