Selectmen Meeting Minutes - Emergency Meeting

November 2, 2017

Present: Carl Newton, Donald T. O'Brien, Linda Paris - Selectmen

Bob Greenwood, EMD; Tim Keenan, Road Agent; Tom Keenan, Contractor

Meeting called to order at 5:06 PM by Mr. Newton

This emergency meeting was called under RSA 91-A:2 II to assess the damage from the 10/29/17-10/30/17 storm and prepare a preliminary damage assessment for HSEM which is due 11/3/17.  This meeting was posted on the Town of Sharon website, at the Sharon Meeting House, and an email sent via "googlegroups".  

Discussion about the damage at the McCoy Rd. bridge, at least 150' of ditch is gone.   Tom Keenan gave an estimate of $6,500.00 to repair this area.  Materials needed would be at least 140 yards of bank run gravel, 50 cubic yards of crushed gravel, pug mill mix for temporary paving and a final paving in the spring.  It was noted that an engineer may be needed to assess if there is damage to the bridge.  Discussion about adding a second culvert at the McCoy Rd. bridge to try to mitigate this type of washout in the future.

Discussion and review of the following:

  • Damage to other roads: Mountain Road, Cross Road, and Swamp Road.

  • Clean up necessary by the Road Agent to remove downed trees and limbs.

  • Tracking the administrative costs of this event.

Completion and electronic submission to HSEM of the preliminary damage assessment form.

Motion to adjourn (Newton/O'Brien). All in favor, motion carried. Meeting adjourned at 6:00 PM.

Minutes taken by Debra Harling.  Approved on 11/7/17.
