(Town Common) are:
Interestingly enough - not all the Select Board were privy to the big meeting with Mr. Marsh, Jill, and Shareen. I met several months ago with the new head of the Board of Directors of the COA. At that time she told me she did not like that location for a COA and she definitely did not want a two story building. I left that meeting feeling pretty good. She really liked the layout of the Orleans COA . These discussions have been going on for months with other people behind everyone's back. I find it absolutely despicable that these individuals would go this route again. One of my friends said they act like spoiled children that will just not accept "NO" from Town Meeting and keep trying until they get their way. I agree. I urge anyone that reads this Chatroom to drive by the current COA and see the number of cars there on different days. Until they can increase their membership and include younger seniors they will never get my vote along with many of my friends. What figure do you think the previous 8 million will rise to now? I hope this is voted down again at Town Meeting. These folks work for us - not against us. I also believe Mr Dykens needs to recuse himself from any discussion since Mr Marsh is a landlord to his wife's business.

Looks like we have gone full circle back to West Chatham for the senior center. Good grief, as they want to raise property taxes almost 3x 2/12.

Bill, Apparently it drained as of 7:00 p.m. last night I was told. The huge puddle will be on the agenda for the Select Board on February 7th .

Judy, I went through today and there is no water. The lake on the other side is always there.

I tried to go through Commerce Park yesterday to get to Body Strong. Now there is a puddle on the other side with a BMW stuck in the middle of it right before Kent Landscaping. The businesses from that point around the corner to the other puddle are inaccessible . I've been told it's a private road - yet no one will do anything about this. The Guest Column in the Chronicle last week was spot on. In addition it's an issue for the Board of Health with the fish processing business there. I hope an elderly person doesn't try to drive through there, get stuck, and get out and potentially drown. This is an awful situation with no resolution in sight . The Select Board had this ad a "tentative agenda item" for tonight but it was removed. Like this and the airport mess they sit back and choose not to get involved.
