Jonathan Gibson

 

Call to Order:

The meeting was called to order at 7:02 PM by Selectman Nicholson

 

Approval of Agenda:

2019 Selectboard Appointments Review:

A review of those Town Officer appointments whose terms expire in 2019 were reviewed so that a delegated member of the Selectboard can contact the Chair of the respective Board or Commission or the individual themselves to gage interest in continuing to serve the Town

 

Open to the Public:

                Jonathan Gibson thanked the Selectboard for the letter sent in response to the 2018 Vermont Telecommunications Plan. As a follow up he requested that the Selectboard contact the recipients of the letter in order to solicit their individual feedback and what action they might be taking in response. In addition, Mr. Gibson requested that the original letter also be sent to the Senate Committee on Finance under whose jurisdiction is the Public Service Department. The Clerk was asked to forward the letter to the Senate Committee on Finance.

Steven suggested that individual citizens should request from VTel, the Public Service Department or now members of the Senate Finance Committee a reasoned response to the fact of the short battery life for telecommunication services, especially within the E-911 system, the Selectboard will not be making specific follow up contacts.

A document was received from Martha Sirjane regarding the process that requires the E-911 Board to log as a matter of public record those times that the E-911 system is out of service. However, Martha pointed out that VTel is not required to report E-911 outages if the cause of the outage is due to electrical grid outages. Consequently, it was pointed out, that when there is extended periods of time in which there is electrical power failures and the subsequent loss of phone service for E-911 is experienced, those instances are not logged as times when E-911 is non-functioning.

Steven moved and Aaron seconded to approve:

Mark Goodwin, Town Clerk
