Police Department:  Police Chief Paquette had handed in a proposed policy on False Alarms.  Ms. Mayberry asked if these fines should go into the Police Department Revolving Fund because the Town is paying the officers and gas used to respond to these calls.  Mr. Dalessio will call a few towns with Revolving Funds to ask how they deal with this.  He will also talk to Chief Paquette again.  Mrs. Pschirrer suggested it be broken down by a percentage.

Ticket Ordinances:  Mr. Dalessio talked with Lt. Sanctuary about the existing Ticket Policies/ Ordinances.  There is a “gap” on exactly what has to be done to enforce and collect the fines that will remain in the town.  This is a project to be worked on in the next couple of months.
