ASSESSOR: The council appointed Robert Rowe of Burke as assessor following the resignation of David Rotman, who took a different job.
Rowe is to submit a monthly report of activity and attend Town Council meetings.
CEMETERY: The town will make an inquiry to the State Department of State’s Division of Cemeteries for a clarification on whether Hillside Rest Cemetery on Franklin County Road 4 is officially abandoned.
Robert Bergeron, who has maintained the cemetery and says the upkeep is now the town’s responsibility, told the Town Council the state declared it abandoned in 2000 since there were no surviving plot holders and no lots could be sold.
BUDGET: The council scheduled an initial quarterly budget meeting for 7 p.m. Wednesday, Sept. 25, to go over the bills, bank statements and the budget.
Subsequent budget meetings will be held the fourth Wednesday of every third month.
SECURITY: The Town Council discussed hiring an information-technology specialist to monitor the new security system being installed at the Municipal Building and to update and maintain the town’s website.
VANDALISM: Highway Superintendent Jamie Durant said a window was broken on a town-owned pay loader. He filed a police report and said security tapes will be reviewed.
Durant also updated the council about pavement grinding to begin on Lantry Road and Cold Springs Road, paving at the Municipal Building parking lot and repairs to Kibble Road.
