Selectmen's Meeting Minutes 11/24/2014
Town of Antrim – Board of Selectmen
Meeting Minutes
November 24, 2014

The meeting was called to order at 7:00 PM by Chairman Genest

Members Present:        Mr. Genest, Mr. Webber, Mr. Robertson
Staff present:          Donna Hanson (Town Administrator)

  • Mr. Genest read a paragraph from the November 10, 2014 BOS meeting minutes regarding the request from Antrim Wind Energy LLC (AWE) to amend section 2 of the PILOT agreement which would change  the date from December 31, 2016 to December 31, 2018. The BOS agreed to speak with  Attorney Upton  (who negotiated the contract between AWE and The Town of Antrim) in order to determine the necessity for a public hearing.
The BOS consulted with Attorney Upton who didn’t think that changing the date was substantial enough to warrant a public hearing. Chairman Genest read an email between Attorney Mayer, Town Counsel and the former town administrator stating that a public hearing was most likely needed. Chairman Genest felt that even though the agenda was posted that day at 3:00 p.m. on the town website for the meeting at 7:00 p.m. that there wasn’t enough time to inform the public of a decision on a subject that has split the town in the past. Mr. Genest stated that it could also be a good time to open the contract to make any changes that may be needed. Mr. Webber stated that the only thing they are amending is the date.
Mr. Webber moved to amend the current Pilot agreement date in Section 2 .Mr. Robertson seconded.  Passed 2/1
