EXECUTIVE SESSION

In accordance with 1VSA 312(b) where premature general public knowledge would clearly place the Municipality or person involved at a substantial disadvantage, the Board unanimously agreed to go into executive session for Personnel at 3:35 P.M.  The Board came out of executive session at 4:00 P.M.  The Board took no action at this time.

 

NEW BUSINESS

VT Department of Health Form

The Select Board reviewed a form received from the VT Department of Health for the Town Health Officer appointment from April 30, 2005 through April 30, 2006.  The Select Board appointed Bruce Babcock as Health Officer at their March 2, 2005 meeting.  The Select Board unanimously approved H. Pelkey to sign the form.

 

Pension Plan

Town employees working a minimum of 24 hours a week are entitled to participate in the Vermont Municipal Employee Retirement System.  Records indicate Mike Warfle, Constable often works in excess of 24 hours a week and had not become a member of VMERS.  Gordon DeLong researched VT Statutes and found that an employee covered through another pension plan could be exempt from the pension plan if they so requested such an exemption.  M. Warfle requested in writing to be exempt from the Town pension plan and enclosed a letter form the City of Rutland stating he is covered by their pension plan.  The Select Board agreed to have M. Balch draft a letter to VMERS requesting M. Warfle obtain exemption status from participating in the VMERS plan

 

Planning Commission

A request from the Planning Commission to appoint an interim Planning Commission member for the finalization of the new Zoning Ordinances until such time as the vacancy is permanently filled was reviewed.  This matter was tabled for further discussion in Executive Session.

 

RCSWD

The Rutland County Solid Waste District has faxed to the Town the meeting minutes of the last RCSWD meeting.  The minutes are in the Select Board reading file.  RCSWD will continue to fax minutes in the future for the Select Board to review.

 

AOT Annual Financial Plan

M. Balch presented the AOT Annual Financial Plan for Town Highways for the Select Board’s approval and signature.  The form is prepared annually by Dave Lathrop, VTRANS and the Town Manager and is used to qualify for Class 2 and Class 3 money and VTRANS road grant money.
