Approve Minutes of Prior Meeting – Moved by V Pogue, second by D Yelk to approve minutes from the July 28, 2014 board meeting as written.

Public Comment: G Jimarg & G Morauske came before the board to discuss the purchase and property zoning of the Norton Rd property previously owned by K Miller. They are interested in purchasing the parcel with the large pole building structure on it. They would like to use it to store seasonal vehicles. The current zoning does not permit this use, they would like the zoning changed. After a detailed discussion the board instructed them to canvas the neighbors informing them of their plans to find out if there are any objections to the proposal. The area is primarily residential. The rezone would be for commercial.

Consider/take action:  Award Curbside Collection Contract Jan 1, 2015-Dec 31, 2019: L Updike announced that there were four companies that responded to our RFP – Advanced Disposal, John’s Disposal, Pellitteri, and Waste Management. John’s Disposal sent a letter declining interest to serve our community, their radius for service is 50 miles. The remaining 3 RFP’s were very detailed and require some study by the board. The award was delayed until August 25, 2014. The board asked the company representatives to come back and the board will go over a comparison spreadsheet during the meeting.

Consider/take action:  Adjustment to Fee Schedule:  Moved by D Yelk second by V Pogue to approve changes to Resolution 8-11-2014 to reflect Hall Rental and Permit to Construct, Maintain or Repair Utilities within Hwy Right-of-way. The change in the Hall Rental is for frequent users and the Permit to Construct, Maintain or Repair Utilities within Hwy Right-of-way reflects the cost of repair for affected area.
