Road Report: This years paving is complete. The work on School Road, paid for by the Better Back Roads Grant, should be completed this week.
We discussed the offer made by Cathy and Tim Wilson for the building lot that borders their property and use to be part of their farm. We asked Carlton if the Wilsons would have any problem converting the building lot to bulk acreage if they bought the land. He said that since the Wilson’s property surrounds the building lot, and their bulk land is not in current use, then it shouldn’t be any problem changing the lot from building to farmland status. We decided, by a 3:1 vote, to put a note in the Fletcher Newsletter and St. Albans Messenger to see if there is any other interest in purchasing the property. Annette will write the article and tell Cathy and Tim of our decision.
Maurice asked us for an assistant zoning administrator to train as his back up. We will list the position in the newsletter.
