John and Anne Cucchi met with the SB to discuss the lawsuit against the town; he stated he will drop the lawsuit. John and Anne expressed concern for how their subdivision is being scrutinized and feel that they are being unfairly targeted with getting approval for their subdivision. They voiced concern that the HCC has overstepped its bounds and mishandled public information. Mr Maneval stated he feels the files being brought to HCC meeting okay, but that the files left the building is where the problem lies. There is a public file in the building at all times and it is available either with the selectmen’s office or the Town Clerk depending on open hours to the public. Winston (member of the public) stated he took the file home to review it for completeness acknowledging he should not have and that Sherry dropped it off Thursday morning.

John and Anne asked for reimbursement of property appraisal, subdivision fees and legal fees totaling $6600.00, with the reimbursement being deducted from the “current use” tax bill and then wanting the money to come from the HCC. Winston stated he was not in agreement to do so, but would bring it to the board for a vote. The meeting rapidly drifted off topic and touched on the past and the previous nights HCC meeting with exchanges occurring between Mr. Cucchi, Mr. Wolhandler and Mr. Sims, and Mr Maneval called the meeting back to order with civility is a basic level of respect and with that said does not give up any rights. SB took the Cucchi’s request under consideration.

Winston Simms requested a meeting with the board in executive session. It will be considered based on whether it met the merits for an executive session meeting.

Curtis Taylor came in to ask about how to go about fixing the deck on his parents cottage at 16 Dion Grove. We directed him to get an application, to see Angela and she could connect him with Mike Wilder, the building inspector to measure and advise.
