Aaron moved and Steven seconded to approve the agenda. Approved without modifications
Road Commissioner’s Report:
Jamie requested that the Selectboard approve the 2017 Annual Financial Plan, developed in conjunction with District 3 of VT AOT.
Bert moved and Aaron seconded to approve the 2017 AOT Financial Plan. Within the Financial Plan is $250k for FEMA Flood work, this expense reflects the outstanding monies associated with the FEMA reimbursement for the Upper Cold River Road slide project. Approved
Bert moved and Steven seconded to authorize compliance with the Road and Bridge Standards and Network Inventory. Approved
Steven moved and Bert seconded to approve the contract with VT AOT for the High Risk Rural Roads (HRRR) contract. This is a grant that was awarded in 2014and is planned to implemented this coming construction season. It included, signage and guardrails for the Cold River Rd from the Clarendon boarder to just about Mountain School Road. Approved
Jamie reported that the Town vehicles are doing OK. The 2010 truck is starting to show wear in so far as it is requiring much more maintenance and part replacements than is routine.
Laura Black, Chair of the Shrewsbury Planning Commission formally presented the Unified Zoning and Sub-Division Regulations to the Selectbaord for their review and scheduling of a Public Hearing pursuant to 24 V.S.A. §4442.
Included is a summary letter indicating those particular sections of the Zoning document that have changed as a result of merging what was two distinct regulatory documents. In that there were no substantive changes or modifications from the Planning Commission’s Public Hearing on March 20th.
Bert inquired as to the status of “Certificate of Compliance”. Members of the Planning Commission indicated that the term and paragraph in which it was utilized were removed from the draft document prior to the initial Public Hearing. It was removed in so far as the Zoning Administrator found it difficult to authorize such a document because Shrewsbury only requires a “Building Permit” if the “footprint” of the existing dwelling is changing or a separate accessory structure is being built that is over 64sqft. Steven had forwarded to the Planning Commission a number of written questions this evening. The Planning Commission will return on May 3rd to review and discuss those questions once they are able to examine them and consider them within the context of the Unified Regulations.
Bert moved and Aaron seconded to hold a Selectboard Public Hearing on May 17th at 6:30 PM at the Town Office. Approved
Jonathan Gibson inquired as to the process after the Selectbaord Public Hearing. It was explained that statutorily the Selectboard has 120 days in which to approve the By-Law. Otherwise the modification processes will commence from the beginning with the Planning Commission holding a Public Hearing.
Bert apprised the Selectbaord of the ACT 148 July 1, 2017 mandate in regards to food scrap diversion for generators of 1/3 ton per week. Bert indicated that currently the plan will be for two metal containers with lids will be utilized for food scrape collection. One containing the food scraps and one for sawdust to be used as a layer and “dry” carbon addition to the “we” nitrogen rich food scraps. Bert is still attempting to determine the schedule for pick-up of the food scraps or what the logistics with either a local user of the material or Hubbard’s will be for removing from the Transfer Station.
