NEW BUSINESS:

None

OLD BUSINESS:

Road repair.  Mayor met with County Engineers. They recommend scraping potholes, grading, then rolling and aggregate stone placement to crown.  Possible top dressing for aesthetic. No plan for ditches. County will perform work at no charge. Other options would be a private contractor at huge costs starting at $40,000 up to $400,000. Similar road repair was performed by the County at Botany Bay Plantation, which sees heavy traffic during peak season, and thus far has only required yearly box blading for maintenance.  Mayor visited Botany and took photos to show to community members for approval.

While awaiting to be put on the County schedule, Mayor proposes a temporary fix with the placement of dirt only if at low cost. Other possible Town expenses may be the completion of Rockland, where the County cannot work, top dressing SIYC RD and patching the easement road. Then hopefully just yearly maintenance.  Mayor to sort out details and nail down a scope of work with the County. 

Mayor motioned to have council approve temporary road repairs up to $3000.00. Zach Nelson seconded.  Unanimously approved.

BZA second reading to reduce from 5 to 3 members.  Mayor moves to have Ordinance 8212019 adopted. 

BZA needs a third member as Bruce Strouk (sp?) has resigned. Keith Luckie has volunteered.  Mayor council nominates Keith to BZA.  Zach Nelson seconded.  Voting to take place at next Town Council meeting.

Planning needs 2 spots filled. State Law requires 5.

Mayor motioned to move forward reducing DRB from 5 to 3.  Seconded by Zach Nelson.  Unanimously approved.

East Coast Seafood is still reviewing proposed Easement.

Bittngham Group has completed the Audit.  $4500 is due for their services.

SCHEDULING ORDER:

  1. Mayor to move forward on road maintenance with County.
  2. Temporary road fix in the interim with agreed upon $3000.00 limit.
  3. Two people needed for Planning.

Motion to adjourn 8:08. Seconded by Zach Nelson.
