...Barry said that after our last meeting he had reviewed the RSAs regarding Chip being appointed as a Member of the Board.
refers to RSA 91-A:2 which addresses "meetings" and when it is permissible or not permissible to have discussions, but does not specifically mention e-mails.The RSA states, in part: "For the purpose of this section, a "meeting" shall mean the convening of a quorum of the membership of a public body, as provided in RSA 91-A:1-a, to discuss or act upon a matter or matters over which the public body had supervision, control, jurisdiction or advisory power."Meeting" shall not include: (a) Any chance meeting or a social meeting neither planned nor intended for the purpose of discussing matters relating to official business and at which no decisions are made; however, no such chance or social meeting shall be used to circumvent the spirit of this chapter; (b) strategy or negotiations with respect to collective bargaining; and (c) consultation with legal counsel."Barry feels the Heritage Committee has over-stepped this RSA, specifically 4)c) (of the recently adopted E-mail policy): "Any Heritage Commission (HC) member who receives e-mail(s) which references the HC and/or HC business shall consider such as correspondence to the HC.
reiterated, the HC handout is more stringent than the RSA.
In an e-mail from Bob Moore to Barry Hantman
, dated July 14th, Bob states that the Town seems to be experiencing premature deterioration of some of our subdivision roads (Sweet Hill Estates, for example).
believes that either (1) our specifications are not correct or (2) inspections need to be more carefully monitored.Chris mentions that closer inspection should be paid to: (1) maximum compaction tests; (2) what materials are used for the road base; and (3) the type of gravel.He
also suggested that the Selectmen
review all road inspection reports before the Town accepts a road.
ended by saying that in his
commute to work, Danville's roads are the best cleared and maintained during the winter months.
...Barry said the Board cannot grant permission about their crossing Hersey Road, that is a Selectmen's issue and should be left to the Selectmen and attorneys to make a determination.Barry
did say that, assuming they could cross Hersey Road, there are several concerns he
has with the plans presented: (1) the cul-de-sac has to be in the shape of a number 9; we need the road length nearest to the point reached in two directions (corner Hersey Road and Route 111A); and (3) the road length may exceed the allowable limit and they would have to ask for a waiver.Regarding lot 3-155 that borders to the south of this proposed subdivision, what does the land look like at the southern side of the cul-de-sac for future connection?It was mentioned that setbacks might be a problem on their proposed lot 4 as regards wetlands (75').Barry
received an e-mail from Bob Moore regarding "penalties" suggesting the Board implement a fixed dollar value rather than a "not to exceed" penalties ($275/day, $550/day for subsequent violations).
The Board had reviewed these changes, written by Barry
, and had no comments.On motion made and seconded, the Board unanimously voted to put this article forward to our first public hearing on November 9th.
Add a new Article XVI, Noise Ordinance that will place restrictions on the noise levels permitted within the Town of Danville
and establish the methods for measuring sound levels and enforcement.This new article was also written by Barry
, taken, in part, from the Town of Hudson. Barry
had written this at the request of the Selectmen
who had received a number of complaints during the year, mostly having to do with vehicles (trucks, school buses idling for an extended period of time during the early morning hours).
After some discussion, Barry
took a vote to see if we should try to modify this proposed ordinance for the 2007 warrant.
felt that Joe's draft was a step forward, but not a big step.
