JUNE 8, 2016


Selectboard Present:     Steven Dalessio (Chair); Peggy Pschirrer; Joseph Aldrich

Call To Order:  Mr. Dalessio called this Non-Public Selectboard Session to order at 8:10 PM.

Reputations:  The Selectboard had received copies of the Engineer’s report on the Vilas Bridge that was done in March 2016.  Mrs. Downing was asked to send a copy to Ms. Cheryl Mayberry.  After Mr. Dalessio read the report he talked to Mr. Mark Houghton about it as he had concerns.  He asked Mr. Houghton if he felt the Town of Rockingham Selectboard and Village of Bellows Falls Trustees would panic after they read the report and Mr. Houghton said he did too.  The bridge is deteriorating a lot faster than they anticipated.  Mr. Houghton is reviewing the emergency plan.  If something would happen they would immediately shut down the sewer flow and transport with trucks to Bellows Falls and/or the second plan is to trench to Green Street where there is a manhole they could connect to and it would go across the Arch Bridge.  He will contact the DES and keep the Selectboard informed.  FairPoint also has cables underneath the bridge.  Mr. Dalessio does not feel they will see much activity on their agreement in the near future.  They do not plan on attending the Rockingham/Bellows Falls Joint Meeting on June 14, 2016.

The Zoning Board of Adjustment will be meeting on Wednesday, June 15th.  The Walpole Leadership Academy students will be attending this meeting.  Mr. Dalessio will email the Fink letter to Mrs. Pschirrer for delivery to Mrs. Mansouri.


Mrs. Pschirrer moved to adjourn this Non-Public Selectboard Session. Mr. Aldrich seconded the motion, on a roll call vote with all in favor, the meeting was adjourned at 8:20 PM.


Respectfully submitted,

Regina Borden, Recording Secretary
