5.                  Change in Leadership – Greenville Fire Department:            After five years of dedicated service to the Greenville Fire Department, Fire Chief John Cobb will step down from his position June 30, 2010.  The annual elections held by the Department this month resulted in the election of Joe Harris as Fire Chief, effective July 1.  Chief John Cobb and Chief-elect Joey Harris will be present to report to the Board of Selectmen the current state of the Fire Department.

 

 

6.                  ATV Access Route Requests:    The Board of Selectmen commissioned two straw votes which were held as part of the June elections, the results of which are attached.  Before taking action on this matter, the Town Manager and Police Chief recommend that the Moosehead ATV Club and the Moosehead Lake Region Chamber of Commerce be asked to develop a proposed parking plan for ATV traffic along these proposed routes; that the Police Department develop an enforcement and education plan for the users of the proposed routes (the educational effort to be implemented by the ATV Club and/or business community), and that these proposals be presented for comment to the public at a public hearing to be held in July.  As Town Manager, I recommend that the Board of Selectmen wait to take action on these ATV Access Route requests until these additional details are worked out and the public has had the opportunity to comment on these details.

9.                  Landfill Closure:             The Board of Selectmen should consider two actions to move forward with landfill closure activities.  First, the Board should take action on the bid results for partial landfill closure activities this fiscal year.  Based on the attached bid results and consultation with our engineers at CES, Inc., Interim Public Works Foreman Chris Bussell and I recommend awarding the contract to the low bidder.  Second, the Board of Selectmen should take action on securing financing for these closure activities: I recommend going out to bid for the $300,000 general obligation bond approved at the annual town meeting.
