Presentation on Proposed Northern Forest Canoe Trail / General Information Kiosk at Katahdin Parking Lot: Jen Lamphere of the Northern Forest Canoe Trail (NFCT) project and Susan Crippen and Linda Koski of the Natural Resource Education Center will be present to discuss a proposal to install a new sign at the end of the Boardwalk on a small piece of lawn space next to the Katahdin which would provide information about the NFCT and also space for events in Greenville.

7. Fire Department Grant Award: Last week, the Town was notified that we have been awarded a $74,187 grant from the U.S. Fire Administration for basic firefighting equipment, including new turnout gear, air packs, air compressor and cascade air system, and a new thermal imaging camera. I have invited Fire Chief Mike Drinkwater to attend the meeting to update the Board on what this request will do for the fire department and the Town.

8. Property Tax Abatement Requests and Supplemental Tax Commitment for Tree Growth Penalty: There are a series of abatement requests recommended by the agent for the Board of Assessors, the Town Clerk and I due to errors made in the calculation of property value. One error in particular points to the need to upgrade our tax records through revaluation and our computer system to receive this information. There is also a supplemental tax commitment for the Board to sign for a tree growth tax penalty which has been triggered. Town Clerk Roxanne Lizotte and I will explain more at the meeting.

9. Computer Upgrade for Revaluation: To expedite the revaluation process and to give the Town the capacity to fix the system, I recommend that the Board authorize funds to be used from the current revaluation reserve to upgrade the hardware within our computer system. This will allow us to receive the windows version of the TRIO components which we have which are currently running in DOS format. The upgrade will also allow for new data to be entered into our system for expeditiously from this point forward. The software upgrades can come next summer as part of the new budget (if approved). But data can begin to be entered soon by our staff or that of the assessors: such inputting will be accomplished easier and with less likelihood of the system crashing if we implement these upgrades. There are sufficient funds in the reserve to pay for this computer hardware upgrade for the revaluation process.
