1. School addition was discussed; it needs to be done ASAP as Schavi will be bringing in the addition on July 19 2004. With little time to get going it was decided to use local contractors without going out to bid, Poirier Excavating, Dayton Sand and Gravel for concrete and Dave Hill for trucking and gravel materials. Motion by Ed Leblanc to go with these contractors and 2nd By Jim Trask to skip the bid process and use the above noted contractors.

2. discussion was held as to if we should go with frost walls, full foundation or just pillars, It was brought to everyone’s attention that Schavi says this building was not designed for frost walls due to where the underneath supports are located, It was discussed that the Frost walls will just need to be relocated to the support area’s underneath, and that these supports should be able to support a full structure in the future if the Town decides to go that way. Dana Robinson expressed concern that we should worry about now and not 10 to 20 years down the line, all were in agreement with that statement. Discussion was made to go with a slab and cement tubes to hold the building. Septic was discussed to have it pumped to the existing septic tank. Skip mentioned that the most important thing at this time is to get the slab going ASAP so there is no deadline, Skip Cushman is the main contact person for all contractors and Ed LeBlanc is going to be his assistant.


1. Nancy Harriman came in to see if the Selectmen have had any complaints about gun shooting on River Ridge Dr. Ed LeBlanc informed Nancy that it was the Selectman that forwarded the letter to the Planning Board. Nancy said she would inform them that the Town of Dayton doesn’t have a noise ordinance at this time and there is nothing we can do at this time, Selectmen were in agreement.

2. Road committee was in to discuss with the Selectmen on the agenda of what is going to be done this summer.

a. Most of last year’s monies are air marked for Hight Road improvements. This is going to be started at any time. Mike Souliere has removed the trees in the area of the blasting. Jim Trask has the final estimate of $4,300 to replace the four culverts that need to be replaced on the Hight Road, Motion by Keith Harris 2nd by Ed LeBlanc to accept the bid and have him have them done July 5, 2004 or we will find someone else. Passed 3/0, Blasting should be done this week or next. Dana will schedule grinding and paving as soon as the above is done.

b. Hollis Road work, Dana informed the Board that most of Hollis Road is to far gone to just shim, Ed LeBlanc informed everyone that Dearborn is suppose to have $10,000 air marked to the help the town improve that Road. It was discussed that since we now have a new Road Commissioner he can get started on looking at the culverts and ditching on that road and do as much as we can for a total budget of $110,000. All were in agreement.

3. Nancy Harriman brought to the Selectmen’s attention that there have been complaints against the amount of truck traffic from Dearborn’s pit and they believe it may be against the condition use permit. It was Motioned by Jim Trask and 2nd by Keith Harris that since it is in the conditional use permit it needs to be check, Jim Roberts was assigned to do this and report back to use. Passed 2/0/1 unstained.
