EEE Update, status of permit of spray for mosquito control
Mr. Gaydos informed that the state had developed an e=
permitting process; the Town had all the documentation necessary if the Bo=
so chooses to order a spraying. The
documentation includes and application for a grant of up to $2500. Mr. Gaydos said a document regard=
permitting process would be posted on the web site. He said an additional case of EEE=

Mr. Lynde said he wanted to know the pros/cons of spr= aying versus doing pellets. Mr. Ga= ydos said he had his quarterly meeting with other Town administrators and discu= ssed the topic of what the most effective use would be. He said there were two applicatio= ns and discussed what surrounding communities had done. He wanted the opportunity to disc= uss further with other towns and then come up with a plan for Pelham.
Mr. William Pultar, Sr. reviewed the Town policy rega= rding the citizen appeal process. = He indicated that he followed the process and wanted to know where to go from there. Mr. Danevich question= ed with what respect Mr. Pultar was referring to.= Mr. Pultar said he brought a matter forward for investigation regar= ding Mr. Gaydos deferring him from making an appeal. Mr. Danevich understood that Mr. = Pultar had sought legal relief in two cases in which the court ruled against him;= part of that dissertation was to implement a policy for all public employees and post the local appeals process. Mr. Pultar wanted to know how a complaint would be addressed. Mr. Gaydos explained when a compl= aint is brought forward, the Town tries to rectify the situation as soon as possible. Mr. Pultar didn= 217;t feel that had been done. Mr.= Gaydos disagreed. He said when Mr. = Pultar brought a series of complaints to the Town, the Town recognized that it ha= d an inadequate filing system in the Planning Office and it rectified that (all files were since placed in one location).= Mr. Pultar didn’t feel the Board was addressing the fact that= he couldn’t appeal when he wanted to.&= nbsp; Mr. Gaydos disagreed. He said Mr. Pultar knew when the appeal was due and when it had to be done an= d Mr. Pultar chose not to. He said= Mr. Pultar never handed the Planning Office an appeal and they never refused to take it. He said Mr. Pultar = was represented by counsel and heard by the Zoning Board of Adjustment. Mr. Danevich didn’t want to ‘rehash’ the two law suits brought against the Town and how th= ey were ruled. He felt they were adequately addressed by the court in both cases. He discussed the actions taken by= the Town as a result of the complaint that came against the Town. He said he didn’t believe t= he Board would take further action on the complaint and considered the matter closed. Mr. Pultar continued= his line of questioning as to what the Board would do with his complaint. Mr. Danevich said it was unclear = what Mr. Pultar wanted the Selectmen to do.&nb= sp; Mr. Pultar didn’t feel his allegations were being addressed.<= span style=3D'mso-spacerun:yes'> Mr. Danevich said it was handled = by the court who ruled against Mr. Pultar twice.= Mr. Pultar said he could offer proof because all the papers came to= him after he had been to court. = He wanted people to know that people reporting a malfeasance would get ‘= ;a fair shake’. Mr. Domen= ico said Mr. Pultar alleged that there was interference or non-cooperation fro= m Town officials relating to his appeal of the administrative decision. He said the Policy specifically prohibits Town employees from impeding any resident’s rights to appe= al; Mr. Pultar’s allegations were addressed in the Policy and no complai= nts had been received subsequent to Mr. Pultar’s. Mr. Pultar confirmed that anythin= g he alleged wouldn’t happen again. Mr. Domenico answered yes, to the extent of the Selectmen’s ability. Mr. Lynde questione= d if the Selectmen formally adopted the policy. Mr. Gleason said he believed the system worked, the Selectmen acted= on the complaint, did everything possible and had taken precautions so that it would never happen again. = p>

(5-0-0) The motion carr= ied.
Mr. Danevich then read aloud a portion of the Hillsbo= rough Southern District court order docket #06E622 (dated September 8, 2006), wh= ich in summary stated (upon due consideration) that Mr. Pultar had received al= l the documents he had requested, there were no undisclosed public documents bei= ng retained by the Town of Pelham accordingly a full and timely disclosure, o= f all the existing documents by the Town of Pelham within petition was dismissed.
Mr. Danevich suggested that Mr. Pultar seek professio= nal legal counsel to assist him. Mr. Pultar believed that was direction he would have to go because he wasnR= 17;t getting the satisfaction that it wouldn’t happen again.
Fire Chief Michael Walker regarding Engine 3 Discussion & U= pdate
Fire Chief Michael Walker reviewed the three bids rec=
in connection with acquiring a new pumper truck. He said the Apparatus Selection
Committee selected Alexis Manufacturing (who bid $333,973) because one bid=
too high and another didn’t meet specifications. He said they inquired from the ma=
what the cost would be April 1, 2007 since the decision would go to Town v=
what a loaner cost would be; and if they could get a lease/purchase. Chief Walker said on
Chief Walker thanked the Apparatus Committee for their
work. He discussed the impor=
of having the equipment. Mr.
Danevich asked if the purchase was considered an emergency expenditure.
Mr. Bergeron agreed that it was emergency situation.<= span style=3D'mso-spacerun:yes'> He had a couple questions about t= he make of the chassis and engine. H= e asked if the Chief had the 2006 specifications as well as the specifications put together by the review committee. Chief Walker said he could provide the information to the Selectmen. He clarified that= Alexis would custom build the fire engine, the only thing that would be a 2006 wo= uld be the engine (Alexis has a diesel engine that was not allocated to a truc= k and would save the Town $5000). = Mr. Bergeron wanted to know the difference of a 2007 truck versus a 2006 was t= he emissions. Chief Walker said= there were new emission standards in 2007and there was a new engine available th= at could be held until the Town could put a vehicle together. Mr. Bergeron felt it was importan= t to review the specifications and get a vehicle that was needed. He felt it was an emergency to re= place Engine 3 and hoped that voters would support the replacement of such.
Mr. Gaydos reviewed the proposed timeline and questio= ned if Alexis could wait two weeks to provide the opportunity to review the specifications and ask questions. Chief Walker believed they could wait two weeks.
Mr. Danevich believed everyone was in agreement that = this would be put before the voters for their support. He confirmed with Mr. Gaydos if t= he policy had been completed regarding requesting bids. He adamantly supported the fact t= hat the equipment was critical to the Fire Department and action needed to be taken sooner, rather than later. <= /p>
Mr. Gleason confirmed that the Chief was seeking appr=
tell Alexis to move forward with a loaner, pending the warrant article at =
Meeting. Chief Walker answer=
ed yes. Mr. Gleason asked if Chief Walker=
his staff were satisfied that the vehicle being proposed would be satisfac=
for their purposes over the next fifteen years. Chief Walker answered yes. Mr. Gleason wanted to make sure i=
commitment was made to Alexis (for April, 2007) if the warrant was success=
that no RSA’s would be violated and no Town assets would be committed
prior to the vote on the Warrant.
Mr. Gaydos answered no; the agreement was explicit if the Town vote=
the loaner truck would go back. He
said they were not committing the Town Meeting to an affirmative vote. Mr. Gleason confirmed that any ma=
for the vehicle would be taken out of the regular budget. Mr. Gaydos answered yes. Mr. Gleason asked if there would =
written commitment given to the Town indicating they would provide a unit =
There was further discussion regarding how the Select=
wanted to proceed; there was a consensus to accept a conditional motion.
Mr. Lynde made a motion to accept=
bid from Alexis
(Lynde/Gleason) To accept the proposal (pending rev= iew by legal counsel and the Board of Selectmen of the specific terms) from Ale= xis Manufacturing to enter into an agreement with them to acquire a pumper, = at a cost not to exceed $345,000 as the base price, with the stipulation that there is no obligation by the Town to follow through with such if Town approval is not achieved; further, to accept their offer to loan the Tow= n (at no cost to Alexis) a fire truck in the interim with a projected delivery= date of October 31, 2006.
(5-0-0) The motion carr= ied.
Mr. Danevich said the Selectmen wanted a one week rev= iew period at which point they should be able to execute an agreement.
New Hamps= hire Fish and Game, Mike Matson, Conservation Officer & Pelham Park & Recrea= tion Director, Darren McCarthy regarding Hunting in Raymond Park=
Mr. Danevich informed that the Selectmen had discusse=
topic of hunting at the Town parks approximately one year ago and promised=
progress after the summer and discussions with
Mr. Danevich said on
New Hampshire Fish and Game Officer Mike Matson said =
Park and Pelham Veteran Memorial Park were no longer ‘on the table=
for discussion for hunting purposes.
He agreed they were not appropriate places for people to hunt. However, Officer Matson felt Raym=
Park (which was in excess of 250 acres) would be safe for all persons to h=
bow and arrow hunting and trapping.
He noted that Pelham was currently paying a trouble trapper to trap=
beaver out of the park. He s=
trapping was specifically not allowed in the Town ordinance and if it were=
be allowed, the Town would no longer have to pay for the trouble trapper
(beaver season began November 1st). He noted there was no history in =
Mr. Bergeron wanted the Selectmen to have the opportu= nity to review a maintenance program for trapping and asked what the cost would be= for such. Officer Matson said the trapper was good, but didn’t know the associated fees. Mr. Bergeron wanted to find out w= hat it would take to have a maintenance program.
Mr. Domenico didn’t believe hunting should be a= llowed and the compromise position he had would be to allow a focused altered hun= ting season for one or two weeks in the parcel per year. He didn’t feel there was an= y other option due to the use of the park. =
Mr. Gleason felt there were adequate facilities avail= able in Town to satisfy the hunting community.&nb= sp; He was in favor of maintaining the current policy.
Mr. Lynde asked what dates bow and arrow season was open. Officer Matson said bo= w and arrow season ran typically from September 15 – December 15. Mr. Lynde discussed trapping and = the possible problems with domestic animals getting caught; he wanted to know = how this was addressed. Officer = Matson said one dog (not on a leash) had been caught, but didn’t know the specifics. He said he typica= lly received very few complaints of like incidents. He addressed trapping again and i= ts important to maintain population. Mr. Gaydos explained that the reason the dog was caught in the foot trap. He said the trap was s= et in deep water (at the time it was set), unfortunately with recent heavy rain, water breached a dam and the foothold was near a walkway. He said the incident was at no fa= ult of the trapper, it was just a bad incident.&= nbsp;
Mr. Danevich asked if any grants, applications, or do= nations would be affected by the policy. = span>Mr. McCarthy said he did some informal research of the soccer coaches using the facility; each were leery of allowing any type of hunting. He provided a map showing the loc= ation of the proposed soccer fields. He didn’t feel that the donors would be interested in making a contribu= tion if hunting were allowed on the parcel.&nb= sp;
Mr. Roger Kriegl, Eagle Scout and Cubmaster of Pack 2=
he reviewed the proposed plans for the park and saw there was a rifle
range. Mr. Danevich said tha=
not accurate; there was many years ago, but the plan has since been
updated. Mr. Kriegl said he =
interested in knowing the long-term plans for the park (and the scouts).
He wanted a clear understanding o=
the Selectmen saw the park contributing to the scouting movement. Mr. Lynde said the intent was for=
park to be a passive recreation/multi-use area. He said the open areas would be
converted into soccer fields. He
said it was also hoped to have a retention pond down near the lodge. Mr. Kriegl said he was looking to
Raymond Park as being a great opportunity for scouts to experience all typ=
things in nature. He was aga=
the use of shot guns in the park, but showing children how to use muzzle
loaders and bringing them back into the tradition of hunting. He believed the scout lot would p=
children (between the ages 10-17) of the opportunity of hunting. Mr. Danevich (being a member of P=
Fish and Game) pointed out that annually the archery range, camping ranges,
fishing in the pond were open to the scouts and was a property designated,
posted/signed location for those types of activities within the Town. He said Pelham Fish and Game had =
strong working relationship with the scouts and wasn’t aware of a
deterioration in that relationship that would force the scouts to seek a p=
place where many other individuals were.&=
Mr. Kriegl said having an area for (children) learning without the
pressures of experienced hunter being in the area might be a good opportun=
for the children to experience. He
felt bringing hunting to children was one of the things the scouting movem=
represented by bringing the traditions our forefathers to children of
Mr. Danevich said the Selectmen had to decide whether=
reaffirm the existing ordinance adopted
(Gleason/Domenico) To reaffirm the Policy (Prohibiting Hunting and Discharge o=
Arms in Town Parks) enacted

Mr. Danevich-Yes; Mr. Domenico-Yes; Mr. Bergeron-No; Mr. Gleason-Yes; Mr. Lynde-Abstained.
PUBLIC INPUT SESSION re: possible usage of Mills property <=
Discussion a= nd possible vote to: 1) prioritize the new Central Fire Station; 2) utilize M= ills property for a new Central Fire Station; 3) Central Fire Station construct= ion approach; and 4) usage of Impact Fees for Central Fire Station.=
Mr. Danevich said two meetings ago the Fire Chief sta= rted a conversation/first formal presentation about the findings of a committee to propose a central fire station. He said the Board had made the presentation available for public review and s= olicited public input. He said the in= tent of the meeting was to focus on the usage on the Mills property.
Mr. John Costa (son of Hilda Pennelli owner of
2 Timber Lane) said
he received a letter and didn’t understand what information the Sele=
wanted. Mr. Danevich said the
Selectmen were seeking public input regarding the usage of the Mills
property. Mr. Costa felt it =
great place to develop for something needed for the Town. He didn’t feel his mother w=
have issue either. He simply =
to know where the entrances would be located. Mr. Danevich said the
preliminary/conceptual plan showed access through
Mr. Don Hornbeck speaking for himself and his wife El= aine Hornbeck said they had no opposition to the proposal and were in full agre= ement with it.
Mr. Bergeron said with the current fire station vehic=
could easily turn in any direction and was concerned that vehicles would h=
difficult time accessing areas during certain times of day with (the curre=
traffic) backup to the Town center.
He asked the Fire Chief for his opinion regarding access from the
current station versus the Mills property.
Fire Chief Michael Walker said it was somewhat dangerous for the
vehicles to pull out now and also dangerous for the call fire fighters to
access now. The traffic flow=
reviewed for the properties and it was determined that the Mills property =
be the ‘best bet’. He
said it was safer to exit onto
Mr. Gaydos informed the Selectmen that the first impa= ct fee was accepted March 22, 2002 and had a six-year duration expiring March 22,= 2008 at which time the Town would be responsible for returning such if the fund= s had not been encumbered or otherwise bound the funds. He said in order to enter into a = larger contract some type of Town Meeting approval would be needed; in the opinio= n of two attorneys, this didn’t prohibit the Board from spending funds as= long as the amount in the impact fee account wasn’t over expended on items such as architectural design, testing etc. He said if nothing was done $114,676 would have expired (December 3= 1, 2008) from that period and would have to be returned.
Mr. Danevich asked if impact fees could be used to re= place Engine 3. Mr. Gaydos answere= d no and went on to review the document outlining what the impact fees could be= used for. Using impact fees in ma= nners other than described in the impact fee document would violate the Town Ordinance and state law. Mr.= Gaydos said the architect has received no money; there is no contract or agreement. He said the archi= tect had worked with the committee because he was interested in the project and would like to see it move forward. Mr. Gaydos discussed the next steps that happen to obtain prelimina= ry pricing. He said to get to t= hat point the cost would be approximately $125,000 - $150,000.
Mr. Danevich said there had been a question if any mo= ney had already been spent from the impact fees collected and wanted to know the status. Mr. Gaydos said comm= ents had been made and believed they were misunderstood; no impact fees have be= en spent for the fire station or the substation. The remaining balance totaled $53= 9,635 (including interest). Mr. Da= nevich asked what costs had been incurred from the architectural firm. Mr. Gaydos said no costs had been incurred; the architect indicated if a value was placed on the services he= had provided, the cost would have been approximately $76,000. There is no agreement with the architect.
Mr. Bergeron said he attended a meeting where a state= ment was made that impacts fees had been spent on the fire station and that tur= ned out not to be true. He then = read aloud from the minutes of the previous meeting (September 19, 2006) regard= ing the creation of a rendition (with the footprint) being put together, which= he was told would mean nothing based on the work that had been done. He was interested to know if the taxpayers wanted it, because they say no and the impact fees ($509,000) we= re already spent it would be on something that was worthless. Mr. Gaydos said the last piece th= at had to be done was to take all the aspects and put them together to determine = the shape of the building, traffic flow etc.&= nbsp; Chief Walker believed that the question was if the impact fees were going to be used. He said the intent was to get to the point of having a set of prints/drawing to be abl= e to obtain an accurate number for a bond warrant article. He was concerned money would be w= asted by putting money into a fire station when the general idea was to build a = new one.
CIP and Planning Board Chairman Bill Scanzani wanted = the Selectmen to understand that spending some of the impact fee money had no downside. He said even thoug= h the impact fees were currently in a reserve account in the Town it wasn’= t the Town’s money and would have to be returned to developers if it wasn’t spent on the items for which it was collected. He said to take some of the money= today to design the future use of the central fire station so voters could be presented with a detail that made sense had no downside. Mr. Danevich explained that the m= oney was owned/controlled by Pelham and was not raised through taxes. He said if the Town ended up movi= ng forward after the expiration of the impact fee schedule, the money would have to be raised through taxes. He sai= d more research still needed to be done. <= /span>
Mr. Gleason asked if Mr. Scanzani agreed that if the = money was spent and the voters rejected any proposal for three or five subsequent years that the money would have to be repaid with taxpayer’s money w= ith interest. Mr. Scanzani said not the money s= pent in order to do the engineering drawings.&nbs= p; Mr. Gleason’s point was if the money had to be returned after having spent it, they would return taxpayers money with interest. Mr. Scanzani said money spent on engineering would not have to be returned. Mr. Gleason said an interesting article was presented by a resident= that indicated if a commitment wasn’t made by a municipality to proceed w= ith their share, then that money would have to go back. Mr. Danevich said more research w= as needed, they had three legal opinions that were conflicting regarding how = the money could be spent. Mr. Ga= ydos said the statute was clear about returning money; it states clearly that i= f it had not been spent, or encumbered or otherwise bound it wouldn’t hav= e to be returned. Mr. Gleason wan= ted legal opinion regarding appropriating the municipality’s share. Mr. Gaydos agreed.
Mr. Domenico asked to be allowed to make a motion to =
some issues to rest and gain a consensus from the Board. Mr. Bergeron said he was told tha=
Board wouldn’t take any motions.&nb=
It was noted that the agenda states there may be a possible vote.
Mr. Domenico read his motion alou=
follows: To accept the Fire Chief’s and Fire Station Subcommittee=
recommendation that for both life safety and asset preservation reasons, t=
the central fire station is the highest priority capital expenditure for t=
he Town. Further, to accept the Fire
Chief’s and Fire Station Subcommittee’s recommendation that the
Mills property is the best possible location for such a facility. Further, to endorse the construct=
management form of project delivery as the method preferable to the Board.=
Mr. Lynde seconded the motion.
(Domenico/Lynde) To accept the Fire Chief’s= and Fire Station Subcommittee’s recommendation that for both life safe= ty and asset preservation reasons, that the central fire station is the hig= hest priority capital expenditure for the Town. Further, to accept the Fire Chief’s and Fire Station Subcommittee’s recommendation that = the Mills property is the best possible location for such a facility. Further, to endorse the constru= ction management form of project delivery as the method preferable to the Boar= d.
ROLL CALL = VOTE:
Mr. Danevich-Yes; Mr. Domenico-Yes; Mr. Bergeron-No; Mr. Gleason-Yes; Mr. Lynde-Yes.
Mr. Lynde responded to the comment that the Board was rushing. He said project had= been studied for two years; alternates had been reviewed to modify the current building. He said substation= s had been also discussed. He felt= it was known that the Mills property had been looked at. Mr. Bergeron said in the past (2 = years) he had supported the extra four fire fighters, which he believed was a priority. He also felt fixin= g the roof on the existing building and other issues were a priority. He said the only way to deal with= issues was to have the Chief bring them to the Selectmen’s attention. He wanted to extend the process s= ince there were things that needed to be corrected now.
Mr. Danevich said the Selectmen recognized (4-1 vote)= that a central fire station, from a planning standpoint, the Fire Chief and the committee could continue to plan on the Mills property with the proposed construction. The Selectmen accepted the group’s recommendation of a central fire station versus= a sub-station. Mr. Danevich reiterated the wording of the motion and said there would be further discu= ssion regarding how the project would be paid and brought before the voters.
Mr. Lynde said the more information given to the vote= rs regarding the project and the costs was important. He understood there were questions regarding the usage of impact fees, but felt there was a need to get the process going so those impact fees weren’t jeopardized. He said it was known that the bui= lding was needed.
Mr. Scanzani said it wasn’t just the issue retu= rning of impact fees, but in the past four years fire stations had been studied.= He said the impact fees were desi= gned to collect 3.8 million dollars which at that time would have been the cost of= a central station and one sub-station. He said at this point a central station only would cost 7 million dollars and if the Town waits another year there would be an approximate 6% increase ($400,000). He said= the waste in the money was not only delaying a new central station but was als= o in fixing an old building that had to be torn down.
Mr. Bergeron was glad to hear what the station may co=
had heard all kinds of numbers. He
said he attended a meeting with the Fire Chief in
Mr. Gleason said in recent years, there had been a ha= rd time with the voters. He said the= re were two elements necessary for a successful vote, one being Budget Committee approval and the other being the confidence of the voters. He endorsed the concept and plan,= but not the timing. He believed a package had to be put together and put to the voters requesting usage of t= he impact fees. He felt there w= ould be a backlash from voters if the Selectmen made the determination to pursue a= fire station and committed the resources. Mr. Danevich believed it was recognized more research had to be don= e and there was time given the information regarding the impact fees. He anticipated further discussion= during the upcoming meetings.
Mr. Domenico left the m= eeting.
Darren McCarthy re: RecTrac Update
Mr. Danevich said the Selectmen had tasked the Recrea= tion Department to seek out software to assist the department with the growing complexity of registration, field scheduling etc. He said this was the last departm= ent to have assistance through technology or automation. He said RecTrac seemed to come to= the top and asked Mr. McCarthy for an update.
