I. Call to Order Meeting called to order at 2:35 pm.

II. Discussion Items:
● Question whether or not to proceed with submitting an article to the warrant for town meeting as originally planned. If so, what amount do we want to amend the article to.
● Barbara stated if we are to submit the article, the amount would need to be raised $50,000 to reflect the new items the Fire Marshal’s inspection found to be deficient in the library.
● Whether or not the board had sufficient information to proceed with the article at this time.
● Whether or not to have a breakdown of repairs and what they will cost.
● Should an official policy be made prior to town meeting and what should that consist of?
● Should policy issue and construction issue be separate items?
● Should there be numbers available of what it would cost to run two schools simultaneously.

III. Action Items:
● Barbara moved to amend the figure we are requesting the selectmen to borrow to
$610,000. Kelly seconded. All in favor. Approved.

IV. Budget.
● Discussed any changes that would need to be made. Question whether money could be
added on the floor at town meeting to keep the library open should the lending option be voted down and the $120,000 approved to complete ABS.

V. Adjournment.
● Barbara made a motion to adjourn the meeting at 3:36 pm. Katelyn seconded.
All in favor. Meeting adjourned.

Respectfully submitted,

Kelly Sanborn, Secretary
