Staff Present:  Neal Cass (Town Administrator)

Media Present:  Michael Pon-The Villager.

1.  Acceptance of the minutes of previous Board of Selectmen meeting.
VOTE:    Selectman Webber moved that the minutes of the July 20, 2009 Board
                of Selectmen meeting be accepted as printed.  Selectman Genest
                seconded the motion.  There being no further discussion, Chairman
                Schacht called for the vote.  All members voted in favor and the
                Chairman declared the motion carried.

VOTE:    Selectman Genest moved that the minutes of the July 20, 2009 Board of Selectmen Non-public Session I be accepted as printed.  Selectman Webber seconded the motion.  There being no further discussion, Chairman Schacht called for the vote.  All members voted in favor and the Chairman declared the motion carried.

VOTE:    Selectman Genest moved that the minutes of the July 20, 2009 Board of Selectmen Non-public Session II be accepted as printed.  Selectman Webber seconded the motion.  There being no further discussion, Chairman Schacht called for the vote.  All members voted in favor and the Chairman declared the motion carried.

2.  Memorial Gymnasium Agreement Review
        Selectmen reviewed the draft of the Memorial Gymnasium Agreement between the Town and the ConVal School District.  They found it satisfactory and requested the Town Administrator to have Town Counsel review it.  It was noted that an agreement for the use of Shea Field needs to be completed.

3.  Review of revenue and expenditure reports through July 2009
        The Town Administrator reviewed both the revenue and expenditure reports with the Board.  Revenues are running slightly behind with a projection of a $79,000 shortfall by the end of the year.  $30,000 is from the elimination of Shared Revenue and the remainder is from motor vehicle registration.  With the new Cash for Clunkers program registrations are increasing dramatically so the hope is to make up most of the difference.  Expenditures are running below budget in all departments with the exception of Police, which has been discussed previously, and Welfare.  Not only are all other expenditures below budget, but a below what was spent in the same period last year.  The savings in the expenditure offsets the estimated shortfall in revenues.

4.  Discussion of process for reviewing Road Agent applications.
        The three Selectmen and the Town Administrator will each individually review each application and rate each candidate on the criteria as listed in the job description.  The results will be used to determine which candidates will be interviewed.

5.  Discussion of citizen raised issues.
        The Board will visit the Bishops on White Birch Point Road to review their concern over the drainage.

        Selectmen reviewed a request from the Wards on North Main Street concerning their water line which broke during the construction.  It was noted that the line was not originally installed correctly.  Selectmen felt some responsibility and will review the bill to determine what was an upgrade and what was actually just fixing the leak.

        Selectmen determined that the entire intersection at North Main Street and Goodell Road as it now stands is in the Town right-of-way and wish to leave it the way it is.

6.  Member Updates.
        Selectman Webber is writing the article for the Limerick due on August 10.  It will be reviewed by the entire Board before it is submitted.

        Selectman Schacht will schedule a meeting with the Barsanti to review the solutions to their drainage issues.  The Town Administrator will also attend the meeting.

7.  Town Administrator Updates
        The Police Station Advisory Committee will holds its public information meeting tomorrow night and will present their report to the Board at its next meeting.

8. Non-public Session – RSA 91-A:3 II (e) Legal
