7. Recreation Director: The Board of Selectmen created an ad hoc hiring committee of two recreation committee members, two Selectmen, and the Town Manager to solicit applications, interview candidates, and to create a recommendation to the Board. A recommendation has been created, and the funds necessary to pay the director in this position are included in the Recreation Budget request. I recommend that the Board approve these recommendations, and empower the Town Manager to make an offer to the desired candidate and, if this offer is rejected, to make a subsequent offer to the second candidate. If you wish to discuss the candidates, the Board will need to enter executive session.

8. Snowmobile Program Wrap-Up and Initiative: Dave Vaughn, our Snowmobile Trail Grooming Program Coordinator, will be present to give an update on this program, what worked and what did not work this winter, and our plans for moving forward this next season. In discussion with Dave Vaughn, members of the MRSC and some business people, as well as from five years experience as the program director, I have prepared an initiative for improving snowmobiling in the Greenville community. Dave and I will present this proposal, and we urge the Selectmen to work toward this plan, which will take years to implement. If we are going to be serious about keeping and enhancing our market share for snowmobiling, a plan of this magnitude should be considered and ultimately implemented.
