Special Town Meeting: Monday, November 27 @ 7:30 PM: Chuck H. informed the Committee that the Selectmen have scheduled a Special Town Meeting for Monday, November 27 @ 7:30 PM. One of the warrant articles will be a request of the Community Preservation Committee to appropriate an additional $100,000 of CPA Park & Recreation funds for the town’s portion of the Squibnocket construction.
The August 25, 2017 meeting minutes were reviewed and approved as presented by consensus.
Chuck H. read a letter from Captain Jimmy Morgan dated 9/1/17 asking if the Town decides to remove the Chilmark sign on the front of the fishing shack he recently donated to the Town on Lot 1A to please let his family know. They would want to keep it if the Town does not wish to have it. He also asked the Park & Recreation committee to pass this information to the new tenants. Mr. Goldman said he would make sure the tenants are aware of this request.
Mr. Goldman approved the $160 invoice for the 160 Park & Recreation patches that were produced for the Committee to proudly wear with distinction.
Chuck H. informed the Committee that he will need to end his “on loan” status for the most rewarding assignment and work with the Committee. He will stay on until the 2018 lot leases are completed. He explained with construction under way at Squibnocket and his other assignments time has become a scarce commodity.
With no further business to discuss, the meeting adjourned at 8:55 AM.
The next meeting will be November 9, 2017 @ 8:00 AM.
Respectfully submitted, Chuck Hodgkinson, CAS
