Chilmark Beach Committee
July 27th, 2010
Present: Clarissa Allen, Kristin Maloney, Martina Mastromonaco, S. Mcquiggan, W. Iacono, & Emily Day
Meeting called to order at 5:40pm
Voted to approve the minutes from June 29th, 2010.
Emily Day (Town Accountant) joined the meeting to explain some of the overages to the FY2010 budget. The Committee voted to approve $2,500.00 for an extra guard by the fallen cliff at LVB. (This should have come from the Finance Reserve Committee) the Assistant Superintendent salary line was already overspent by $2,728.68 at the end of FY2009.
Including FY2009 the Asst. Superintendent salary line was over spent by $7,022.27 at the end of June 2010.
The Superintendent’s salary line was over spent by $700.00 from hours worked in the winter 2009 and spring of 2010.
Payroll expense for clean-up in the spring and pre-registration of stickers $2,978.90
The work that was completed 2-3 weeks prior to the beaches opening was a major contributor to the budget overages.
Superintendent suggested that we create a position for clean-up & close-up of beach instead of paying Lifeguard wages to complete this type of work.
The Committee’s chairman stated that staff must be cut & parking guard’s staff cut back. LVB’s parking lot has only filled up once this summer the Superintendent and the Asst. Superintendent have to send employees home when the staff is not needed. The Supervisors must be very proactive. Suggestions: have only one parking guard at LVB and one parking guard at Squib. Cut the Lifeguard to one at Menemsha. Start cutting & let people leave when it’s raining or when rocky.
The committee continued to discuss the budget and how to bring FY2011 in line.
The Committee stated to check with Conservation Commission about meeting time & have board members present to discuss restoration plans.
Next meeting will be August 24th, 2010 @ 7:00 pm
Voted to adjourn: 6:50 pm
