• Several town streetlights are out. They are located one each at the end of North St., Water St., High St. and two on Market St. There are several different bulb varieties being tested. Town is going away from amber Na-Halide. Need to choose a bulb type and have all replaced with the same type.
• Budget concerns: Overages/underages are usually in the same area with overall changes remaining within the same category. In preparing the budget the previous five years are considered. The goal is to get the budget posted and available before the town meeting.
• Commissioners will work to get the agenda out a week in advance of the town meeting.

• Rentals: Spring continues to be good. Not much on the books for summer and fall yet but expect some graduation parties in June.
o Fire Alarm system: Andrea met with Bogan about new system. They are revising their proposal. Fixture counts off and need to look at annunciator panel to recommend options. The work will take 3 business days and the building will be off line during that time. Will try to schedule the work for a MW&Th. Drawings and permit submission are needed which should take 3 weeks. The contract will be signed in current FY.
o Exterior: Buck will get estimates.
Outside light: Waiting for recommendation from Sandy and Miche. Work will be done after or at the same time as the brick walk.
Walkway: Need price of brick and contractor. Don’t have enough information yet to get pricing. Buck and Andrea will contact Miche and Sandy for brick selection. Andrea will get pricing.
Any funds not spent will be rolled over into undesignated reserve.
