4. Presentation by Fire Chief Michael Drinkwater – Possible Multi-Department Position Creation: Mike Drinkwater serves as both the Town of Greenville’s Fire Chief, and also as one of our full-time employees in the Public Works Department. Mike would like to address the Board of Selectmen in regard to the possibility of creating a full-time position which would allow him to more directly focus on his fire chief duties, relieve the work load on other officers in the Fire Department, and perform other public works-type duties. Currently, the municipal budget in regard to the fire department does not include any funding for this type of position beyond what was appropriated for the current year.

5. Police Cruiser Bid Documents: Police Chief Duane Alexander and I will have bid documents prepared for your review. If you approval of our proposed procurement process, then we recommend going to bid immediately for a new cruiser as previously discussed. Once the proposals are received and reviewed, the Board will have the information they need to decide whether or not to replace the main cruiser this year or not.

6. Proposed Increase in Airport Hangar Lease Fee Schedule: I have proposed an increase in the hangar lease fees, outlined in the attached memo. In previous discussions, the Board agreed to consider setting a new fee annually to better reflect actual costs for services at the airport. This proposal would have no impact on current leases; only new leases established from this point forward. I recommend the Board approve this change.

7. Proposed Hangar Development Project Bid Documents: Public Works Foreman Mike Thornton and I will have a bid package for your review for development of the hangar lots off runway 3-21. We recommend the Board allow us to go to bid with this package, and once the total cost is identified, then contact interested parties for hangar development to secure the necessary surcharge to proceed.

8. March 2003 Tax-Acquired Property: Attached you will find a list of property which was foreclosed upon by the Town of Greenville in March 2003. I will provide information for each foreclosure, and recommend that the Board direct me to send letters to each party, setting a deadline for payment before the property will be sold to reclaim unpaid taxes.

9. Discussion with Chamber of Commerce, RE; Funding: I have invited Moosehead Lake Region Chamber of Commerce President Joe DiAngelo and Executive Director Sara Holman to come to this meeting to discuss the contribution from the Town to the Chamber in the proposed FY2003-2004 Budget. Joe and I have also discussed briefly different options for the municipal building project and have concluded that it would be best for he and I to sit down with some plans and a map to determine the feasibility of the options discussed at the last Selectmen’s meeting. We will attempt to have this work complete by the second regular Selectmen’s Meeting in April.

10. Pine Tree Enterprise Zones: I would like to update the Board on this pending legislation and share with you the perspective of many Piscataquis County and regional economic development leaders, including myself. These zones have been characterized as the “most powerful economic development tool proposed in over 20 years”. Whether or not that is true, I believe such a zone – if placed in Greenville – would be the strongest incentive yet for significant business development in the manufacturing field. I recommend the Board authorize me to continue to pursue the option of this status for the Greenville Industrial Park.
