Field—Ball Field Committee is seeking to have $7,500.00 budgeted for the
fiscal year 2001. Several thoughts
were talked about 1) having Frye Island Inc. fund it through the sale of land 2)
having the town raise $7,500.00 through taxes.
However the ball field committee would like to have selectmen add this in
the budget for 2001.
Kuiken made a motion for the Town Manager to research different programs for an
employee retirement plan. This
retirement program would begin in 2002. Joseph
Potts second the motion. Unanimous
Owner Blue Ferry Tickets—Discussion about blue ferry tickets by contractors.
The feelings of several people were that this gives some contractors
unfair advantage over others. Some
of the selectmen felt that the blue tickets were supposed to be used by
residents for going to and from the island.
It was concluded that contractors doing business on the island would use
the red tickets and pay the $16.00 per trip.
Thomas made a motion that contractors must pay $16.00 (red tickets) when working
on the island. However, if he or
she is returning to residence for personal business or pleasure then the
contractor may use blue tickets. Six
voted in favor and one opposed. Motion
selectmen’s meetings were discussed. Joseph
Potts made a motion to accept the following meeting schedule.
