Holtz made a motion to approve the Act 250 highway concerns document, with one small correction, for submission to the District #2 Environmental Commission. Sumner seconded the motion, which passed, 2-0.
Hearing of Visitors
Holtz said Holden Engineering had been in contact with him regarding their request for a written report from the Town on the completed #37 bridge project. As both his computer hard drives crashed recently Holtz has been unable to produce the letter, but he said hard drive replacements have arrived and he will get the report done soon. Sumner verified the final bridge payment had been tendered, and Holtz had sent a form to the bonding company confirming that final payment. A second request had come in from the bonding company, however, indicating the first request may have gone astray.
