Town Attorney: (Becky Goddard)

The former Molden property is now the Town’s.

Becky left a message for Mike Rieck. He has not gotten back to Becky.

The Bilbrey building at 206 E. State St. is taking a little longer. The judge has asked Becky to do a few extra steps. The property won’t be ready by October 1, 2019. Dustin is serving her papers. She attended the meeting and Becky gave her copies of everything. She is taking them to her attorney to loo over

The Kennedy property is still moving forward.

Bob asked Becky to look into the property on the south side of State and move forward with a lawsuit.

New Business:

Dan and Bill Blaney came in to talk about the Lion’s Club. Dan said the Lions Club would be interested in deeding that building over to the Town. The board will table that for now and get back to Dan.

Bob made a motion not to pay any trees or 50/50 sidewalks bills unless the resident comes and gives the Town a written estimate first. Duke seconded. Motion passed 3-0.

The Board welcomed Brian Vanderwall. He is starting tomorrow. He is our new Street Superintendent.
