1. Select Board Meeting
The following items were discussed at the May 11 Select Board meeting:

• Cavendish Water
Due to rust spots on some of the pipes, the filtration system start up has been delayed until late Thursday or Friday of this week.

• VELCO Connector: Access Road Request
On May 5, the town received a petition from VELCO requesting that they sign off on an access road they would like to use to reach the power lines in Proctorsville. As part of the expansion project of the lines, VELCO wanted town approval by May 12. The proposed access point is Quarry Rd off of Twenty Mile Stream Rd. Three of the four landowners on Quarry Rd attended the meeting and explained their concerns-no information was provided on what equipment they want to bring in through the road; how often and for how long. Further, only a small portion of Quarry Road is town property, with the balance being a private dead end road maintained by the property owners. The proposed access road would go through wetlands and deeryards. It was agreed that eight days, along with lack of information, was not sufficient time to evaluate whether this was a viable option .

• Proctorsville Sidewalk Project
A contractor and Clerk of the Works have been hired for the Proctorsville sidewalk and curb project. The area to be renovated will be roughly from Singleton’s down to Maple St., with a little bit of work being done in front of the Pollard Block on Depot St. The approximate start date is in two weeks, with completion by the end of August.
