Road Commissioner’s Report
Jamie notified the Selectboard that he had turned over the recently received notification of insurance modification for Carrara’s Oil Rustproofing for municipal vehicles to Barry Griffith, Town Agent in an attempt to understand what position the Town would be in if Town continued to utilize the service. It was not clear to the Selectboard, Road Commissioner or Town Agent what liability relief Carrara’s Rustproofing was seeking. In so far as the letter was addressed to the Selectboard, Jamie indicated that he would contact Russ Carrara and attempt to get a better understanding as to the rationale for the notification letter.
Contract FM0314 – VT Agency of Transportation
The Town Agent was asked to examine the proposed contract from the VT AOT concerning signage for the Town Hill RR Crossing. The Contract indicates that the regulatory signs that have already been installed, as a remedy for the safety hazard created by the poorly designed paving project completed in the fall of 2017 by an AOT Contractor are now the responsibility of the Town and will need to be maintained and or replaced as needed during their respective life cycle.
Steven will again be taking the Town’s concerns regarding the Town Hill RR ROW issues to the Agency of Transportation management in Montpelier in the form of the non-executed contract and a request for the reexamination of the work done in the ROW.
According to the Road Commissioner, Shrewsbury is not an isolated incident. Various RR crossing throughout District 3 apparently had similar issues.
Bert moved and Aaron seconded to approve the following appointments:
Debbie Blecich; Library Board
