Mr. Burson called the meeting to order at 5:30pm.  A roll call was done to confirm what members were in attendance via teleconferencing.


  • Update on scope of work funded by Better Back Roads grant for Peth Rd project
  • Pratt and Mr. Burson reported that, due to an administrative oversight, the tree cutting work required to be conducted as part of the Peth Rd project will not be reimbursable under the grant. The board discussed whether and how to proceed with funding this work, given that it is not eligible for grant reimbursement.


On motion of Ms. O’Toole, seconded by Mr. Burson, the Board unanimously voted to continue with the planned tree work, at the cost of $5,000, which will be funded with available funds from the highway operations budget. 



On motion of Ms. O’Toole, seconded by Mr. Burson, the Board unanimously adjourned the meeting at 5:58 p.m. 


Respectfully submitted,


Megan O’Toole

Selectboard Chairperson
