- Discussion of Tri-town excavation pit, Bennington stated that the three year mowing contract expires this year and asked if the towns wanted to go out to bid or to continue with the current firm. The consensus was that so long as there is no significant price increase to stay with the current firm.
- Each town’s intent to excavate will be filled out by the towns and submitted to Benningto for application to the State so there is only one intent filed with the State.
- Bennington Selectmen stated that the thought both Antrim and Bennington had warrant articles directing each Town to study the possibility of regionalizing services specifically the police department. After some discussion, the consensus was to form a committee to study and make recommendations. The committee would consist of both Town’s Police Chiefs and 2 members from each community.
