Mr. Cavadini states that there has been a lot of harassment going on since the gate has been put up and that there has even been gun shots fired. Chairman Sheats wants to verify signatures on the petition and make sure they are all registered voters. Selectmen Nadeau states that he thinks the harassment at the gate is a criminal problem and should be handled by the police department. Selectmen Matson thinks that a sign should be put up at the gate stating “any gate issues call police department”. Chairman Sheats told Mr. Cavadini that the people who have been harassed need to file a complaint with the police department. Chairman Sheats wants Louis Piskolti to come to the August 10, 2015 Selectmen’s meeting and discuss the harassment that has occurred at the gate. Mr. Cavadini states that Mr. Piskolti has no livestock so there is no need for a gate. The Select Board told Mr. Cavadini that they would be in touch in a few weeks.
Selectmen Matson proposes that Chief Ellis put the game cam up at the gate for a few weeks and to also call Eric at Fish and Game and have him do more patrolling up there. The Select Board agrees that this is a good idea.

156 Marlboro Rd Complaint – The Selectmen visited the site and met with Norm Whitney. The complaint is that there is no intent to cut and also that they have no permits for any of the digging that they are doing on the property. Selectmen Nadeau states that the big machines running over the water/sewer line that has an easement on that property is a possible problem and that the other issue is that they are digging right up to the river line and there is no sill cloth in place. Chairman Sheats is concerned that there is no intent to cut. Chairman Sheats looked up the laws for an intent to cut and it states that if the cut is under 10,000 board feet and is used for their own personal use then no intent to cut is needed. Selectmen Matson thinks that there should be a wetlands permit in place. Chairman Sheats would like Alissa Fox to call LGC and ask if the town has an easement to the property for the water/sewer line if the town has authority to restrict the use of the easement. Selectmen Nadeau would like Mrs. Fox to call the NH DES and find out since they are clearing up to the waterline if the town can give them a cease and desist till someone from the State can take a look at it.
6:25 pm Kathy & Barbara, Historical Society – Barbara spoke with Chief Ellis about having an inmate come and paint the gazebo floor. The paint is chipping and peeling off. The Historical Society will buy the paint. Kathy told the Selectmen that she would like to find some volunteers to replace the steps on the gazebo because they are not deep enough. The Historical Society is willing to pay for the lumber to replace the steps. The Selectmen have no problem with the stairs being replaced and having a volunteer do it, all that needs to be done is a signed sheet saying that they are
volunteering to replace the stairs. Selectmen Matson suggested asking Jerry Callahan about the stairs since he was the one who designed the gazebo.
6:35 pm Ted Fellows, Silica Pond Dam – Mr. Fellows told the Select Board that there is really nothing that we need to do at this time to the dam beside clear the brush that has grown up. If the brush is cleared and the town keeps doing the maintenance on the dam then the state should see no reason to get rid of it. Mr. Fellows says that he thinks that the rail trail is the real problem with the dam and that the state should help with the issue since it is their property. Mr. Fellows said that he would call Steve Doreen at the State and talk with him on behalf of the Town of Troy.
