  1. There was a moment of silence for Father Mo, who had passed away the prior Saturday.
  2. The Heritage Commission Fall Cruise on October 2 was announced. Proceeds will be used for the painting of Town Hall.
  3. The town-wide revaluation was approved, with approximately 600 properties having changed in value from the previously-proposed revaluation following meetings with property owners. The total town valuation is up approximately 13 percent over the pre-revaluation figure, to over $2.2 billion (including non-taxable parcels and exemptions).
  4. Preliminary design of a salt storage facility is proceeding. It is expected that bids will be obtained prior to the Deliberative Session, and that there will be a bond warrant article in 2018 to pay for a building with double the existing capacity.
  5. State Senator Dan Innis was present to talk about issues facing Rye. Chief among those, from his perspective, were the Coakley Landfill, PFCs and Aquarion water quality issues.
  6. A request for a utility pole license was tabled until Eversource has provided a schedule for the elimination of 45 double poles remaining.
  7. It was agreed that Rye needs to improve its cell phone service. It appears that a consultant will be retained to look into the issue and possible cell tower sites.
