7.                  Appointment of Sub-Registrar for Filing Death Certificates:   Peter Neal of Crosby & Neal Funeral Home (with facilities in Guilford, Dexter, Newport and Greenville) has asked if he could be named a Sub-Registrar for Filing Death Certificates.  By statute, a licensed funeral home director can serve in this capacity if his business has a location in the municipality.  If appointed, peter would not be taking the place of our Town Clerk in the filing of death certificates, but rather would be eligible to complete requests for death certificates on his own.  Recommend approval.
