Meeting Minutes
Bethlehem Selectmen Office

Cliff Crosby came before the Board to discuss the softball league he has been running for 22 years. He
wants to plan on who will oversee it when he no longer can. Mr. Crosby discussed with the Board the option of Rhienna Miscio being involved as the Recreation Director. The Board all agreed that Rhienna just doesn’t have the time to oversee that and it was suggested he tries to find someone within the league to take over.

James World came before the Board to discuss the steel he wants from a property that is Town owned and up for sale. He purchased the steel from the former owner of the lot and the Board wanted to get legal advice on this. He is back tonight to discuss the legal advice the Board got. The Board explained to
Mr. World that he could have the items he purchased if he makes the lot safer than it was. They explained that he needs to do something for the Town and instead of payment he could have the items. They discussed different holes that he could cover. The Board also explained to Mr. World that he would need to provide an insurance certificate to cover him while he is on the property and that he needs to sign a waiver that he doesn’t expect any of the money back that he paid to Mr. Kendall if they Town should recoup any. Mr. World said he would supply the insurance certificate and said he doesn’t expect to get any money back. The Board told Mr. World that the property is due to be sold by sealed bid on April 14th so he would need to be finished by then. Mr. World said he doesn’t have a problem with that. There was discussion about the Board and Dave Wiley going to inspect the site so they can then inspect it after to make sure the mitigation work was done. This will be arranged.
