The above resolution has passed by a quorum. The above resolution is hereby adopted on September 14, 2017.

Terry Hannigan stopped into our meeting to discuss with Judy and the board how the budget part of all this will work.

The board of fire commissioners will come in with the budget already done for them. By November 4th the fire budget will be sent to the municipalities.

The board has made a decision on their pick of who will represent Norway on the board of fire commissioners in Newport. William Wares was the pick.

Motion made by C. Snyder and seconded by C. Gillespie to accept William Wares to the board of fire commissioners in Newport.

Discussion took place on the board of fire commissioners for Poland Judy thought that because Norway only takes up a small portion that we could possible share a pick with Newport.

Legislator Fred Shaw was in our meeting tonight.

Our board has asked him to please contact the County Highway Department about the intersection of Elm Tree road and Hardscrabble to see if they could please do something by winter with the intersection as it would be very hard to plow.

Talk also took place on the shared service. Another meeting is set to take place on September 25th. Judy would like to see all towns and the county get together on health care plans. This would reduce rates for everyone involved. She also asked if maybe the towns could consolidate on health care and leave the County out if they don’t want to participate.

Janet Burt had some information for the board. The historical society will be having a harvest bake sale and their annual chili dinner will be in November.

Janet also stated that they will be starting a web site for the Historical society. Angela Gallombardo will be the web master for the site.

Janet also told the board about a ceremony at the four wars cemetery last Saturday to honor a WWII veteran. She gave us pictures of the ceremony to hang in our office.

Their calendar for 2018 is a day in the life of old Norway.

Pg. 3

Howard asked the board about going to an annual convention for the highway dept. He has gone every year and would like to go again this year. This is four days long. The per diem is $250.00 He was asked to bring back all receipts.

The Board approved this.

Motion made by C. Crossett and seconded by C. Snyder to accept financing on the new truck. Financing company yet to be determined.

The town of Salisbury sent a letter to our town about National grids price increase. Their board has sent this letter to National grid. They have asked all towns to do the same.

The board asked Lora to put this on town letter head and send to National grid.

Motion made by C. Gillespie and seconded by C. Snyder to send this letter to National Grid.

We will be getting rid of the two pink tables from the rec. hall as they are scratching the floor. We will replace them with other tables.

Motion made by C. Snyder and seconded C. Gillespie to adjourn meeting at 8:14 pm
