4. Visitor’s Center: Previously, the Moosehead Lake Region Chamber of Commerce had requested and had received approval for a donation from the Town of Greenville of $600 to help pay for the costs associated with keeping the visitor’s center open this summer. Following this approval, news reports indicated that the visitor’s center would close despite the donation from the Town. Following these news reports, additional donations were committed, making it now possible for the center to stay open for the summer. The Board has requested explanation from the MLRCC for these changes in the visitor’s center schedule for the summer: Executive Director Bob Hamer will be present to offer the requested explanation.

PUBLIC HEARING (7:00 PM) - Housing Rehabilitation Program: The Towns of Greenville and Shirley are completing a Housing Assistance CDBG Program for Housing Rehabilitation activities in our respective communities. A requirement of the grant is to hold a public hearing on the program itself, prior to exhaustion of grant funds and close-out of the grant. Housing Rehabilitation program administrator Ron Harriman will be present to offer a summary of the activities to date for this program.

7. Budget Committee Recommendations: The Budget Committee has reviewed the municipal budget as approved (to date) by the Board of Selectmen, and have made many recommendations, including the inclusion of an “administrative fee” to reflect the true cost of administering the Fire Department, landfill, and Recycling Center, costs which are shared with outlying communities. I will have details for what this could look like at the meeting. Also, the Board (and the budget committee, which will meet at 5:00 PM Wednesday, May 3) need to review the carry forward figures as well as a recommended modification of the veteran’s memorial and cemetery accounts. Finally, the Budget Committee has recommended against an increase in the per-program fee for recreation programs: Recreation Director Jack Hart will have information from the Recreation Committee regarding the rationale for this change.

8. Recreational Facilities Ordinance Change: Recreation Director Jack Hart and I will present details for these ordinance changes, which outline hours of operation. We believe a new set of timers for the lights will facilitate the implementation of these changes.

9. Streetlight Request: Prior to settling the 2006 Annual Town Meeting warrant, the Board should dispose of a request from Red Grenier of Red’s Saw Shop for a streetlight to be placed in front of his business on Spruce Street. He sometimes has trespassers on his property, and feels this light would help to deter such activity. Two year’s ago, Red requested this light, but the warrant was already in place. There was discussion by the Board to seek an amendment from the floor to exchange one proposed light for this one, but that did not happen. I recommend Red’s streetlight request be added to the Town Meeting warrant.

10. Construction / Demolition Debris Disposal Fee: Public Works Foreman Mike Thornton and I will have details for this fee and disposal system at the meeting. We recommend this fee structure be a warrant article for the 2006 Annual Town Meeting Warrant.
