Meeting History

Jan 22, 2018 7:00 PM  Historic District Commission Regular Meeting

· Mr. Sweet corrected the amount of donations as being $190 and not $140.

· On Saturday, January 20 there was a sawmill volunteer meeting to discuss the future of the shingle mill and upcoming projects including the back gutter, outside battens, blacksmith shop roof, grate below the race and tree removal.

· Mr. Ganong was available to discuss any questions on the shingle mill. In an effort to improve the inside displays, he has offered to make up an informational board on the shingle mill as he had for the turbine. Still to be determined are what needs doing on the shingle mill and costs and safety issues.

· Since the turbine is the most important piece of necessary equipment, looking for a possible replacement for it and fundraising for it will be researched.

· It was suggested that our commission consider having our meetings at the Sawmill and Lester House and Center Schoolhouse from time to time.

· Mr. Godino asked about a planer in storage in the back shed at the Lester House and it was determined that it was too dangerous to use at the Sawmill.

· The Sawmill Park sign should be reinstalled before April after Public works digs the holes. Mr. Sweet will arrange.
