M. Balch distributed information in packet regarding the present operations at the sewer plant.  He noted that Simon’s Operation Services, Inc. contract with the Town, they must give notice in July if they want to extend the contract and we have not received notice. L. Pomainville asked if this discussion should be in executive session. A motion was made by A. Hitchcock, seconded by D. Markowski to enter Executive Session for the purposes of personnel discussion at 7:12 p.m.  The vote was unanimous.  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 Contractual Matters and Personnel.  M. Balch was invited to stay.  All others were excused.  The Board came out of Executive Session at 7:30 p.m.  A motion was made by D. Markowski, seconded by J. Gagnon to direct the Town Manager to proceed with the proposed sewer operations contract and not renew the current one, and to advertise for employees to staff the plant, and pursue the inter municipal agreement with Otter Valley.  The vote was unanimous.

With no further business the Sewer Board adjourned at 7:34 p.m. and convened as the Liquor Board

Respectfully submitted:
