Commissioner’s Meeting called to order at 7:04 pm, September 24, 2019. 

Minutes of September 17, 2019, Motion by Com Colburn, Seconded by Com Kiniry to approve Minutes as written. Two in favor.




Chief presented invoices totaling $3,849.44, approved by motion from Com Colburn, seconded by Com Kiniry.  Two voted in favor.

Chief Crawford attended a meeting of the Upper Valley Mutual Aid and North Walpole Fire District was voted in as a member department.  Members have been invited to attend upcoming training sessions.

Chief noted that the “new” Truck committee met last Monday with the Sales Representative and reviewed options and costs.  Department is looking to purchase a combined Rescue/Engine unit, thus trading two vehicles for one.  The estimated cost for this unit is $ 550,548.  The second option would be a fire truck only, a smaller unit at an estimated cost of $527,429, which would mean retaining the old rescue truck which would have to be replaced in a couple of years.




It was noted that there are approximately 25 outstanding unpaid water invoices from the July 2019 billing.  It is anticipated that the water to residences will be shut off around October 19, if invoices remain unpaid.




Important Meeting October 3, 2019 – 6:00 pm Walpole Town Hall.

NHDOT Representative will discuss the repairs to the Arch Bridge (or as they are calling it the Church street Bridge) between North Walpole and Bellows Falls.

William H. Moses
