Selectmen Minutes

April 2, 2019

Present: Carl Newton, Diane Callahan, Fred Woodhouse

Meeting called to order at 5:30 PM by Mr. Newton.

Motion to approve the 3/19/19 minutes (Newton/Callahan).  All in favor, motion carried

Review the revision of the Police contract.  It was suggested that the Town Administrator contact Rodney Bartlett, Peterborough Town Administrator, to determine if Peterborough would have a general contract covering all services provided to the Town of Sharon.  The Board would like the contract sent to both Mr. Bartlett and Police Chief Guinard for their review. Mr. Newton thought the last contract was when Pam Brenner was the Peterborough Town Administrator.

The minutes to the Town Meeting are completed, a letter, with copies of the town meeting minutes and Mr. Woodhouse's and Ms. Callahan's oath of office, will be written so that the Board will be able to get the signatories on the bank accounts changed to remove Linda Paris and add Mr. Woodhouse.

Tracy Craig has agreed to be on the Audit Committee.
