Carolyn Locke, Library Trustee – Received a letter requesting work to be done at the Library; Interior Paint, Furnace replacement and Floor Reinforcement. The interior painting has been completed. A verbal report from John Panaia, Highway Superintendent stated that the furnace does not need to be replaced. Eric stated that the Board of Selectmen will need to request that the basement be cleaned out in order for the beams to be looked at properly. When the replacement doors are installed they will try to look at the beams for a valuation. Eric stated that increasing the floor beams will not increase the capacity that is allowed at the Library that the number is based on square footage.
