6.                  Junction Wharf Update:            The Public Works Department has completed the planting of trees at the wharf (all but the ones planned for the median strip – those are at the PW Garage).  General Contractor Wyman & Simpson intend to hire a local landscape company to add some topsoil to places which have settled (to bring the soil to the height required by contract), and to re-seed and re-mulch the disturbed areas.  Once this work is complete, these seeded areas will be roped off from pedestrian traffic (but the perimeter of the wharf will be kept open to accommodate day-users of the wharf).  Boat launching continues unimpeded: we are working with Piscataquis County to have the Turntable Lot cleaned up and signed for long-term parking from the Wharf.

7.                  Independence Day Celebration:            Plans are underway with the Moosehead Lake Region Chamber of Commerce, the Craft Fair, the American Legion and other parties to hold the Fourth of July on Sunday, July 4th in the Village, with the parade lining up at 12:00 PM in the Junction and proceeding at 1:00 PM to the Village, and Pritham Avenue being closed off from the blinking light to Eveleth Hill from 8:30 AM until after fireworks are done (~9:30 PM).  Although the Board of Selectmen voted last year to have the celebration again this year in the village area (and fireworks shot off from a barge in East Cove), the organizers of the Fourth of July celebration would like to have the Board’s permission to close this section of Route 15 again this year.

8.                  Ethics Policy:       Previously, the Board of Selectmen agreed to consider an Ethics Policy for the Town of Greenville.  After reviewing several such policies, the Board decided to consider a hybrid version of several of those reviewed.  Chairman Gene Murray has modified one of these policies and created a starting point for this to be considered, amended, and eventually brought to a vote by the Board of Selectmen.  The draft policy has been circulated to the Board of Selectmen along with some suggestions by the Town Manager for how to implement it.  The Board may want at this meeting to discuss this policy and offer suggestions for how (or if) to amend it.  The Board may also want to send this policy to offer Boards or Committees which would have to adopt it (e.g., the Planning Board, Library Trustees, etc.) to receive their input on the draft before finalizing it.
