Town of Pittsford Select Board Special Meeting 
January 24, 2007

Thomas "Hank" Pelkey, Chairman opened the meeting at 6:52PM.  Select Board members present were:  Thomas "Hank" Pelkey, Joseph Gagnon, Thomas Hooker, and David Markowski. Allen Hitchcock was absent.  Also present were Michael Balch and Tom Carrara.





To Approve the Warning for the Annual Town Meeting

M. Balch said that no substantive changes had been made in the Warning for the Annual Town Meeting since the draft that had been distributed at last week's meeting.  He pointed out the minor editing that had occurred.  Upon a motion by D. Markowski and seconded by T. Hooker, the Board voted to adopt the Warning for the March 5, 2007 Annual Town Meeting as presented.  The vote was in favor for all present; all present also signed the Warning to be presented to the Town Clerk.


H. Pelkey shared several emails from April Moulaert, of the Vermont Department of Forests, Parks & Recreation with the other Board members present.  Ms. Moulaert had requested prompt action by the Select Board on a request for a letter of support for a proposed real estate transaction between her State Agency and Mr. Robert Forrest.  The Board agreed to add the item to the agenda to accommodate Ms. Moulaert.  Upon a motion by H. Pelkey and seconded by D. Markowski, the Board adopted the following resolution:  While the Board supports Mr. Forrest's right to make use of and/or dispose of his property in any legal manner, it will not set a precedent of supporting proposed usages for properties where it has no way to determine if that use is in the best interests of the Town of Pittsford.  All of the Select Board members present voted in favor of the resolution.


Meeting adjourned at 7:05PM.


Respectfully submitted:                      

Michael Balch, Acting Recording Clerk                                   

Thomas "Hank" Pelkey, Chair
