The Bennington Board of Selectmen (Steven Osienski, Jeffrey Rose & James Cleary), Town Administrator Dee French and Police Chief Steve Campbell asked if the Town of Antrim was willing to discuss the possibility of combining the two town’s Police Departments. The Bennington Selectmen stated that they believe that a combined department would save them money. Mr. Genest stated that he did not believe that there would be any significant cost savings as Antrim would have to add three officers to be able to efficiently cover both towns with the level of service that we currently supply. Bennington Selectmen requested that a selectman and police chief form each town meet to discuss the possibility of combining the departments and what the potential cost would be.
Mr. Webber will represent Antrim and Mr. Cleary will represent Bennington.
Mr. Stearns presented the board with the paperwork for the new ambulance for signatures.
Mr. Stearns presented the board with a request from Matthew Garabrant to purchase a piece of land that the town owns that abuts his property (map 219, lot 010). The board requested that Mr. Stearns research how the Town acquired the land and to send the request to the Planning Board and Conservation Commission for comments.
