Public Comment:  T O’Connell, town resident, asked the board if a No Engine Braking sign could be placed on Twin Lane Road at the approach to the stop sign at Hwy 19. The loud noise from the large tankers that use this route is very annoying to them. The town does not have an engine breaking ordinance.  Before the board would discuss or adopt an ordinance, it was suggested that the resident contact Deputy Nelson to ask for increased patrol in the affected area if they felt excessive speed was a factor.  It was stated that the time of day and license plate number is necessary for officers to take any action.

Town Road Report: L Updike has been contacted by a Bailey Settlement resident, the heavy rains have eroded a gulley in the ditch and is undermining the culvert to the resident’s driveway.  D Farrell will check it out and make repairs.

Fire Advisory Board Report: L Updike went through the numbers in the Fire Department proposed budget. The board discussion was generalized and will wait for L Updike’s report from the Fire Protection Advisory Board meeting on Thursday, September 30, 2010.
