Selectboard Minutes

Wednesday April 7th, 2021

Present at the meeting: Planning commission: Laura Black, Melissa Reichert; Selectboard members: Aaron Korzun, Francis Wyatt. Erin Lorentz, Town Administrative Asst.

 

Members of the public:  Angie Prozzo and Rocky Lucian.

 

Meeting called to order by A. Korzun at 6:59 p.m.

 

Agenda; Motion made by A. Korzun to follow the agenda with the addition of an excess weight permit for Wissell’s Moving Incorporated. F. Wyatt seconds. All in favor. Motion approved.

 

Roads Policy-Class four permits. Planning Commission presented a document stating that they don’t feel there is enough information in the current road policy to prevent current and future situations of concern. Policies are looked at more as guidance, not ordinance. Laura’s comments were read to public. Issues included Maintenance, liability, & water quality issues. Currently the town road commissioner approves individual cases to obtain permit . Korzun stated the policy is meant to be transparent on the current process the town has. Better definitions may be needed for the town to understand its meaning. Planning commission has reached out to VLCT with a few questions.

 

Lucian/Prozzo, local Shrewsbury property owners and residents, were present to follow up on the request for a permit to put in rock to enable better access to their residence. Discussion continued on reclassifying Gaynor road as part trails. Plowing would cause damage to the water bars, which makes house almost inaccessible. Environmental concerns were mentioned, as well as increased traffic by public. Gate installation was a solution presented to homeowners. Lucian/Prozzo were approved for a two-week permit for their Gaynor Road property-access from VT Route 103 with cost at owner’s expense.

 

Excess Weight Permits-A. Korzun made a motion to approve all permits which are Camp Precast, Casella, Normandin Transit, & Wissell’s Moving Incorp. Second by F. Wyatt. All in favor. Motion approved.

 

Church Property Purchase– A. Korzun made a motion to pay $21,138.10 to Corsones & Corsones for purchase of 22.6 acres church property.  $1,000 went directly to Corsones & Corsones, with total purchase being $22,138.10. F. Wyatt seconds. All in favor. Motion approved. At closing A. Korzun will sign for town of Shrewsbury. Closing planned for early April 2021.

 

Open Positions- Animal Control Officer, Lister, Constables.  Debbie Blecich submitted resignation papers for her board seat in advance of 3/17/2021 meeting and Elijah Lachance was appointed that same date, in her replacement. The animal control officer is vacant so residents are asked to contact a Selectboard member for assistance with animal control issues. The sheriffs Dept. or pound can then be paid and authorized by Selectboard member. No applicants for Lister or Constables so those positions remain vacant.

 

Town Building’s Maintenance. Nothing new to report at this time.

 

Traffic Ordinance Enforcement- Town is seeking a potential contract with the Rutland County Sheriff’s Dept. Lorentz to contact Sheriff Fox to discuss. Two four hour shifts a week to monitor and hopefully slow traffic. Goal is to change up the times and day.  Lorentz will share current traffic ordinance with sheriff’s dept. and follow-up with a report at next meeting.

 

Review 3/17/21 Minutes – A. Korzun made a motion to accept the minutes from the 3/17/21 meetings. Wyatt seconded. Minutes accepted.

 

Review Orders: Motion made by A. Korzun to accept Selectboard Order#4 for $3,236.53, Road Order#4 for $7,238. The town sold their dump truck and the $5,500 in income is to be allocated to reserve fund. F. Wyatt seconds. Orders approved.
