Appointment of At Large position to Town Administrator Search Committee.  George Mengel was the only applicant and had previously served when Chris was first hired.  He was unanimously appointed to the committee.



Otis Zoning Sign Bylaw 5.2:  The Planning Board chairman presented the final version of the revisions to the Otis Zoning Board Sign Bylaw 5.2 to the Select Board and formally requested it go onto a Town Meeting warrant.  The Board members agreed to do so.


St. Paul’s Episcopal Church:  Clark & Green have been notified they were granted the award and they recommended Sonia contact Chris to see if there was a contract with them yet.


Gingerbread House:  The volunteer to pick up supplies has not heard from the Rec. Center yet and was wondering if they still needed someone to get supplies.  They’ll need the list soon.  If Rec does not contact this person soon, they won’t have time to get the supplies.
