Update on Fly-In, Airport Projects – Airport Advisory Committee Chairman Telford Allen II: I have asked Telford to come and speak on the success of the 31st Annual International Seaplane Fly-In (for which Telford is currently serving as Chairman); the arrival’s building project; the runway reconstruction project; and the hangar development project. All of these projects I have worked on with Telford; things are moving forward and have gone well on all accounts, in great part due to Telford’s leadership. I will assist in updating the Board on all of these items.

7. Resolution for Meaningful Tax Reform and Against the Proposed Tax Cap: The Board of Selectmen voted at their last meeting to adopt a resolution which would both oppose the tax cap as proposed by citizen initiative but also call upon the legislature to effect more reasonable tax reform to benefit property tax payers statewide. Such a resolution will be presented to the Board for consideration at the meeting.

9. Moorings in Greenville Portion of Moosehead Lake: The number of moorings placed win both west and east cove of Moosehead Lake this summer has been unprecedented. I have received various comments about this increase in number of moorings, ranging from satisfaction that they are there to concern that their presence will result in boats coming loose and crashing into other secured boats or planes, as well as the moorings hindering navigation in certain locations. State law governs moorings in the lake: the question is whether or not the Board would like to further regulate such moorings, which I believe could be done by ordinance. If the Board were so inclined, it may wish to hold a public hearing on the matter to further guage public concerns about said moorings prior to taking any more drastic actions.

10. Maine Municipal Association Convention 2004: This year’s convention will again be held at the Augusta Civic Center between October 6-8. Considering the issues facing our community and that of all communities through the proposed 1% tax cap, as well as fact that we have some new staff members as well as new Board members, I suggest the town office staff and the Board each make concerted efforts to attend. I have attached the registration information to this agenda for the Board’s review. I believe it would be in the Town’s best interest to send a complement of the front office staff to the convention, even if it means closing the office for a day. Also, Greenville has been selected as a case study for discussion on Wednesday night, October 6: I recommend the Board move up its regularly scheduled meeting to either Wednesday, September 29 or Tuesday, October 5.

Also, the Board should consider signing the convention voting credentials for the Town’s appointed representative, which typically is the Town Manager.
