4. Update on Hazardous Waste Day & Request for Disposal of Propane Tanks: I have attached the memo for the first-annual HHW day in Greenville – it went well. Members of the public continue to request from the Town a means to dispose of empty propane cylinders. We can do so for $1/each for 20lb cylinders which still have their valves. But to attain this price, a minimum quantity of 100 is required. I recommend the Board authorize the collection of these cylinders at the landfill at a cost of $5/each (paid at the Town Office). The Town must pay $5/each is we ship fewer than 100. The public wants a way to be rid of these cylinders which (for whatever reason) the businesses who sell propane will not accept.

5. Sale of Oliver Road Lot: The Town has received an offer on this property for the price requested by the Board of Selectmen when the property was bid competitively ($40,000). As per action taken at the June 7, 2004 Annual Town Meeting, the Board of Selectmen may dispose of this property by whatever means the Board feels is in the best interest of the Town. I recommend the sale of this lot to the bidder for $40,000.

6. Police Department Staffing / Shifts: The subcommittee for the hiring of a new, full-time officer is still considering applications. The Board of Selectmen has previously tabled an issue regarding the creation of an on-call shift for early-morning hours by police officers. The Board may want to consider this issue at this meeting. Also, the Police Chief has one name for consideration as a new reserve officer. The Board may wish to enter executive session to consider this possible addition to the Greenville Police Department reserve officer roster.

7. Update on Municipal Building: I have prepared a memo on the process for developing the new building on 7 Minden Street. The necessary first step is to demolish the building, which involves removal and disposition of its contents in a safe and an efficient manner. I request that the Board authorize me to oversee the demolition of this building and the disposition of its contents, which I believe we can complete by June 30. Also, I recommend that the new building plans be put out to bid immediately, with a June 30 closing date.

8. Nominations for Maine Municipal Association’s Legislative Policy Committee: I have served on this committee, elected by a majority of the Town’s voting from within Senate District #8, now Senate District #27, to represent the region on the LPC. The district has changed and grown in its composition, which means some seats on the LPC will be reduced. I enjoy being a member of this committee and as a result, I am better informed as the Town’s Manager. I request that the Board nominate me again for this elected position.
