Highway Department – SB affirms its policy of not plowing or maintaining the alley behind St. Denis’s Church, as referred to in the minutes of December 28, 2017. SB has considered the question of placing a sign at the entrance to the alley regarding road maintenance.

Recycling Center – With respect to the Recycling Center the SB received certain recommendations from Phyllis Tarr.  SB agrees that every effort should be made to prevent excessive speed of cars through the Recycling Center.

In addition, SB also approves sign to indicate that cardboard needs to be broken down before being deposited in container. Selectman Maneval will be in touch with Phyllis to discuss these points.
