Letter from Steven Borne:  Rye 2018 BOS Expectations S Borne

  1. There was extensive public comment on the defeat of Article 9 to tear down and rebuild Town Hall. Some urged the Select Board to start now supporting a tear down and new build, while others urged moving forward with painting and other Town Hall issues as the 45 percent vote is a long way from the required 60 percent.
  2. Selectman Jenness will be BOS Chairman, new Selectman Roman will serve as the representative on the Heritage Commission and the CIP Committee.
  3. Former Selectmen Mills spoke on a number of issues, demanding that the Town Hall ADA issues be addressed to accommodate him, while also arguing that the plan to tear down and rebuild Town Hall should proceed notwithstanding its defeat at the polls .
  4. The application by the Heritage and Historic District Commissions to participate in the Certified Local Government program was tabled after issues were raised regarding town employee time. One resident challenged the work that the Heritage Commission had done.
  5. A committee will be formed to look at the problem of dogs at large.
  6. Former Selectman Musselman’s firm will apparently be granted a no-bid contract to monitor Town landfills for one year.
  7. The Beach Committee charge was delayed until the next meeting after new Selectman Roman suggested expansion of the scope.
  8. Selectman Roman appeared to suggest deferring the budgeted Town Hall painting until after the 2019 election when she argued that full renovation or tear down/rebuild might pass.
  9. The Selectmen read a letter from Steven Borne. Click here for a full list of points.
  10. The Police Chief will warn Summer Sessions that the Select Board may not reissue their permit if they do not come up with a traffic safety plan.
