  • Public Information; The Board decided to announce at the annual town meeting that anyone interested in funding a project through the CPC should contact the committee through the town’s website, and follow up by attending a CPC meeting, where they will receive information regarding funding criteria and procedures. This information will also be available on the towns’ website.
  • Neil will make contact with the town treasurer for a meeting with the CPC and town administrator (current and future) to discuss accounting procedures and DOR CP3 filing.
