- Role of the Land Use Assistant
A discussion ensued as to if the Land Use Assistant (Megan Osgood) should be in charge of taking the meeting minutes.
It was decided that she would continue to take the meeting minutes on a temporary basis and then it will be revisited after the election.
A planning secretary needs to be revisited.
Mr. Webber stated that the RSA states people, subjects and the vote is what needs to be included. The meeting minutes do not have to be a transcript but a brief discussion on the topics at hand and then the board’s vote. He stated it was important to list each member and how the board voted.
They asked Ms. Osgood’s opinion and she conveyed that she was new at taking minutes and would need a lot of help.
Chair Condon spoke on the SEC meeting that he attended. He said that it was short in content but very beneficial.
Gordon Webber made a motion to the Board encouraging the SEC to take jurisdiction over the Antrim Wind Project.
Ms. Cahoon seconded.
The board discussed the impact this would have and if the town would feel like they were not doing their job.
Further discussion ensued.
