Solid waste contract and snowmobile trails on Greenville agenda

Staff Report

    GREENVILLE — The Greenville Board of Selectmen meets Wednesday, Nov. 19 at 6:30 p.m. where the new solid waste contract is the first item on the agenda.

    Sean Bolen, the owner-operator of Moosehead Rubbish, and Town Manager John Simko have met to review the draft contracts which were circulated at a previous selectmen’s meeting. Simko said that Bolen has suggested several changes to the contracts which will be presented at the Wednesday night session.
    If an agreement can be reached, the board may be ready to sign and execute the contracts for trash collection, trash hauling and recycling center services.
    Moosehead Riders Snowmobile Club President John Cobb will update the board on the ongoing efforts to secure a northbound snowmobile trail on the east side of the lake. Simko will also brief selectmen on legal options for securing permanent access for a trail in different locations.
    Also, the 2014-15 snowmobile trail grooming contract between the club and the town has been drafted and is ready for consideration by the Board of Selectmen.
    Cobb will also present the keys to a used snowmobile to Greenville Fire Chief Matt St. Laurent. The club is updating a machine and is donating the old one to the fire department for response to snowmobile accidents.
    St. Laurent plans to update the board on operations at the fire department and has scheduled a walk-through of the fire station with town officials.
    Selectmen and the Greenville School Committee met earlier this fall to discuss how to better work together. At that meeting, both groups agreed to scheduled another joint session in December. So the board of selectmen may schedule a meeting date for another workshop.
    Finally, Simko has suggested an adjustment for the town office hours of operation around Christmas this year, which falls on a Thursday. The staff would prefer to work a full day on Christmas Eve and have the Friday after Christmas off. Simko recommends this as compensatory time for extra duties this summer and fall, and will have details for the selectmen’s consideration.
