3. Closing Time for Recreational Facilities: At the last meeting, Bruce Hanson from the School Department noted that there have been recurring incidents of vandalism at the school which he feels is connected to the occupation of Town-owned recreational facilities late at night by adolescents and young adults. He suggested that the facilities have their lights shut off at 9:00 or 10:00 PM, and to have the facilities officially close at that given time. Our Police Chief has indicated that if the facilities were officially closed, his officers could then disburse groups of people occupying these facilities after hours. There are many dimensions to this discussion: our Police Chief, our Recreation Director and I will have some recommendations for the Board at this meeting.

5. Septage Waste Site: David Thorp of Thorp Septic Service has asked that he be allowed to use our winter storage tanks to stage the removal of septage waste from this area to Plymouth for the remainder of this season. He has asked that the $0.10 / gallon fee we typically charge him for use of these tanks be waived. Normally, we charge David this fee and he then charges the Town $0.05 / gallon to pump the waste back out of the tanks and then spreads it on our land spreading site. This year is certainly exceptional due to the loss of the license to spread on our site. Yet, we also do not have sufficient funds in our account to move our storage tanks as planned. I recommend the Board find a way to accommodate septage waste hauling this fall and this fall only.

6. Unorganized Territory Revenue Sharing Plan: In light of the on-going discrepancy between tax rates in the UTs versus service centers such as Greenville, and in light of the planned and on-going development within the UTs, I have devised a plan for sharing tax revenues between the UTs and the service center of Greenville. The intention of this plan is to create a “win:win” situation for all communities involved by assuring access to services such as solid waste and fire protection for the UTs; creating a new fund for regional infrastructure drawn from the tax revenue from 50% of the new construction in the UTs; sustaining or decreasing the tax rate in BOTH the UTs and in the service center. This plan would need legislative approval – I have already spoken with Rep. Earl Richardson, who is interested in this. I will meet with the Piscataquis County Commissioners here in Greenville Tuesday, August 16 to present this idea to them.

7. Airport Project Update: The attached memo describes the changes coming to our airport as construction on the main runway begins Thursday, August 18. It would be helpful if the Board were to formerly approve the grant offer from the FAA, so that our attorney may certify this.
