3. NEW BUSINESS

Transfer Station - Mr. Barrett presented the Board with a contract/estimate for the
overhead Door at the Transfer Station. Mr. Barrett explained that one of the
hauling contractors pulled out and damaged the door. The estimate is in the
amount of $1590.00 for purchasing materials and the installation. Mr. Companion
said the estimate needs to be signed by one of the Board members and faxed to the
overhead door company so that the materials can be ordered. There are 20 slats
that need to be replaced and the materials will take approximately three weeks to
come in. Mr. Companion said there could be more damage that they have not
discovered but the overhead door company won’t do anything until the Town signs
the contract. Mr. Companion said Waste Management will be paying for the
damages. Selectman Wallace asked if it is in writing that Waste Management will
repair it. Mr. Companion said no but said he can get it in writing. Selectman Cook

the insurance company would step in if it wasn’t paid for. Mr. Barrett said the
Town is covered. Mr. Companion said the insurance company has contacted Waste
Management . Selectman Cook moved to authorize the Chairman of the Board to

Atty. Donald Gardner from Devine, Millimet met with the Board to outline the
firms background. Packets had previously been sent to the Board for their review.
Atty. Gardner said he would like to answer questions the Board may have.
Chairman Slattum said there are a variety of problems that a town deals with
ranging from right to know issues to gravel issues, etc. and asked who would be the
main contact. Atty. Gardner said it is a matter of what the best fit with the Town
would be - depending on the problem. Atty. Gardner explained that there is an
account manager for each client and then they let nature take it’s course. This was
briefly discussed. They try not to bounce people around but over the course of time
you may find yourself dealing with someone else. The firm does a lot of work for
Manchester, Nashua, NHMA and is bond counsel to a lot of cities and towns.
Selectman Wallace asked if they have any experience in Cable Contracts. Atty.
Fred Coubla has worked with phone companies and regulated attorneys. Conflict of
interest was briefly discussed. Selectman Cook asked if they are familiar with SB2
town and was told that they represent other communities that are also SB2.

certain route, would Devine, Millimet tell the Board if it was not the best route.

Planning Board/Cable Committee - Chairman Slattum said the Town is in need of
members on the Planning Board. Selectman Cook said he had received volunteer
sheets from both Steve Sarette and Richard Butt to serve on the Planning Board.
Richard Butt would also like to volunteer for the Cable Committee. Other volunteer
sheets which Selectman Cook had were from Timothy Dorgan and Thomas Ravagno
who would both like to be appointed to the Cable Committee.

Cable Committee Appointments - Selectman Wallace Jon moved to appoint Timothy
Dorgan, Richard Butt and Thomas Ravagno to the Cable Committee. Seconded by
Selectman Cook. Chairman Slattum said he doesn’t have a problem appointing
these individuals but wanted to make sure there were enough open spaces on the
Committee. Mr. Dorgan and Richard Butt will fill the unexpired terms of Will and

taken. Motion passed unanimously.

Police Department - Chief Rigney spoke with the Board regarding sewerage which
is coming up from locker room. Chief Rigney said he had spoken with Everett
Stone who looked at it along with the plumber and said the repair won’t be cheap.
Selectman Cook said he had discussed it with Carl Knapp and when they had done
the drainage project, they found that the sewer pipe from the bathroom was not
connected to anything. The pipe now goes to the sewerage but they assume it was
going into the ground all those years and now that the water is high - it’s pushing
everything up. The floor will probably have to be ripped up. Chief Rigney said it
appears to be a health hazard and would like to know what the Board wants to do.
Chief Rigney said the plumber mentioned that the layout may have to be changed.
This was discussed. Chairman Slattum suggested Chief Rigney get together with
Carl Knapp and Everett Stone and discuss how to address the problem. Selectman
Wallace said if it can’t be fixed by normal plumbing procedures then they need to
come to the Board with other solutions. Chief Rigney will have documentation to
the Board for them to review at the next meeting. Chief Rigney also said if the

problem continues, they won’t be able to process criminals there until it is taken
care of.

9. ELDON TOWNES

Gravel Permit Discussion - Rick Townes and Mike Dahlberg came before the Board
to present the gravel plans previously discussed with the necessary revisions made
as requested by the Board at the last meeting. Test Pit data was distributed to the
Board and a copy of the bond was given to the Chairman. Mr. Dahlberg said there
are 4.9 acres open with three test pits. Mr. Dahlberg reviewed the fact that the
Board had waived the 2 foot contour requirement, locust scale and the test pits at
the March 27th meeting. The Bond presented is in the amount of $13,900 but should
be $22,500. This was discussed. Mr. Townes will have that Bond amount adjusted
to the $22,500. Mr. Dahlberg said they had originally asked to have the final
topography waived but they included that on the plans. Volume to be taken out
was briefly discussed. Mr. Townes said the volume is provided to the Town every
year but it is not listed on the plan. Selectman Wallace asked if they can put the
estimate on the plan. Mr. Townes said they can put 20,000 per year on the plan.
The check off list was discussed. Selectman Wallace said if there is a check off list
then they should go by it. Selectman Wallace said he isn’t sure if they have
required this information from everyone. Mr. Dahlberg explained that it’s an
estimate - it’s not hard and fast but said they can come up with an estimate. Mr.
Dahlberg said due to the size and scope of the plan they didn’t feel it was necessary.
Mr. Barrett pointed out that the volume is on the application. Selectman Wallace
asked if it has been on other plans in any other case. Mr. Barrett said yes - once.
Selectman Cook said anything on the checklist can be waived. Mr. Dahlberg said
the last project it was required on was a 43 acre pit and said he understands the
purpose of that section is for taxation. Selectman Wallace said he doesn’t know the
purpose but it should be required for all. Selectman Wallace was told the other pit
was also an expansion. Selectman Wallace said it isn’t stated on the checklist that
it only pertains to certain ones. Selectman Cook said if the applicant can justify the
purpose of waiving an item, then the Board can waive anything. Selectman Cook
said every operation is different and depending on the scope of the project then the
Board has the flexibility of waiving certain things. Selectman Wallace said he
doesn’t have a problem waiving things but is trying to see how consistent they are.
Mr. Dahlberg said they can come up with an estimate for the cubic yardage but
would like to do so without coming up with a cross section analysis. Chairman
Slattum suggested giving a conditional approval and have Mr. Townes come up
with the estimate. Annual vs. total excavation amount was briefly discussed.
Chairman Slattum moved to approve the plan conditionally providing they get the
adequate bond and a documented total amount of gravel to be removed. Seconded
by Selectman Cook. Selectman Wallace asked what is open on the checklist. Mr.

Dahlberg said only the items they requested a waiver on. A vote was taken.
Motion passed unanimously. Note 13 will reflect the cubic yards of the project.

Selectman Wallace asked Mr. Dahlberg if under 485A, they have to send these
plans to Concord to be approved. Mr. Dahlberg said no since it’s an existing
operation - if it was a new application they would. Selectman Wallace asked why
they are presenting all of these plans now then? Chairman Slattum said the Board
has been trying to make all the pits as consistent as possible. Selectman Wallace
asked if there is something on the permit application regarding 485A. Mr. Townes
said no. This was briefly discussed. Selectman Wallace asked Mr. Dahlberg why
he doesn’t feel they have to send these plans to Concord. Mr. Dahlberg said the
area was already disturbed prior to 485A and said if they had come in with a new or
expansion plan then they would have to send those plans to Concord. This was
briefly discussed. Selectman Wallace asked, if for some reason the Board found they
had to comply with 485A would they agree. Mr. Dahlberg said if they had to they
would and said all that has to deal with is erosion control.

10. PUBLIC PARTICIPATION

Leon Methot - Mr. Methot said he has been reading the newspapers and said it is
very disturbing what is being printed. Mr. Methot told Selectman Wallace that the
only way he can combine the Tax Collector/Town Clerk position is through a town
vote and cannot be done in any other way. Selectman Wallace said he will research
it. Selectman Cook told Mr. Methot that he for one should know not to believe
everything he reads.

11. NEW BUSINESS

Hazardous Waste Collection - Mr. Barrett presented the Board with a Grant
Agreement from DES for the Hazardous Waste Collection. Mr. Barrett said DES
has scheduled it for June 10th but the Town had requested July 29th. Mr. Barrett
requested the Board accept the Grant as is and they will find out the exact date.
The grant requires approval of the Board and a signature. Selectman Cook moved
to authorize the Chairman to sign the DES matching grant for the Transfer
Station. Seconded by Selectman Wallace. A vote was taken. Motion passed
unanimously.

Communications - Bob Richards spoke with the Board and said he met with Carl
Knapp and Myles Rigney the other day to discuss radio communication. Mr.
Richards said an equal concern was the Fire and Police portables. The Highway
Department was the next concern as far as not being able to communicate with Fire
and Police on their base station. Mr. Richards said there is a radio downstairs that
Board of Selectmen
April 17, 2000
Page 7


can be brought over to the Highway Department along with a proposal from R&R
Communications to convert the current system. Mr. Richards said the Saturday
that they had trees down it would have come in handy if they could have
communicated with the Highway Department. Mr. Barrett said the contract has
gone back to Chief Rigney as of today. Mr. Richards said they are moving forward
and want to get this going as soon as possible. Mr. Richards said they cannot find
the contract where the Police Department is under contract.                R & R
Communications wants to make an offer to have all the radios in Town under
contract. Mr. Richards said apparently the CEO car and the Town Administrator
car is also under that contract. Mr. Richards said Everett Stone has also been
included in this. Mr. Richards said they have picked out a radio to do both
departments and will be going out to bid for those. They would like to purchase 16-
17 portable radios. Chairman Slattum asked if they are looking to do that this
year. Mr. Richards said yes with the money in capital reserve and said Chief
Rigney has money also. Mr. Knapp said they would use the money in their radio
contract line. Chief Rigney said another problem with the equipment downstairs is
that there is only three hand held units working. This was briefly discussed.

12. OLD BUSINESS

Meeting Minutes - Meeting Minutes of March 20, 2000 were reviewed with the
following changes:

Page 2 … Dick Butt …Replace “Mr. Butt would like the Town Reports from each
committee to be reviewed and edited for accuracy prior to the report going to print”
with “Mr. Butt asked if information is reviewed by the Board prior to printing the
town Report. Chairman Slattum stated yes, they review drafts from Department
Heads. Selectman Cook stated he did not believe it was reviewed. Selectman Cook
stated they need to pay more attention to this in future Town Reports”.

Selectman Wallace brought up the meeting minutes of April 3, 2000 and March 27,
2000 and said there are still areas that he would like the other Board members to
listen to on the tapes. This was discussed. Chairman Slattum and Selectman Cook
will listen to the tapes.

Approval of meeting minutes of March 27th, April 3rd, and April 17th was postponed
until April 24, 2000.

Motion Directory - There were no changes to the Motion Directory.

Meeting Minutes - Selectman Cook brought up a conversation he had with Ms.
Petrain in regards to what would help in getting the minutes done. Selectman

Page 8


Cook said Ms. Petrain mentioned that flexibility in the scheduling of time would
help. This was briefly discussed. Ms. Petrain stated that currently she is able to
work overtime during various times of the year and said it isn’t often that
additional time would be needed.

Fire Suppression Fee - Selectman Wallace said at some point the Board needs to get
back to the subject of the Fire Suppression Fees. Mr. Barrett said Town Counsel
has the information as of today and will be getting back to them.

13. TOWN ADMINISTRATOR DISCUSSION

Chairman Slattum said this discussion is in reference to Mr. Barrett and
addressing paragraph 4b in the employment contract between Mr. Barrett and the
Town. Chairman Slattum said this discussion will be in Nonpublic Session unless
Mr. Barrett requests otherwise. Mr. Barrett requested a public session. Chairman
Slattum said a couple of issues have come up in the past and this paragraph is in
Mr. Barrett’s contract about 3-4 years ago. Chairman Slattum interpreted this
paragraph so that either side could part ways providing there is the eight week
compensation as well as other accrued benefits. Chairman Slattum said a number
of things recently have disturbed him and said this Board can be guilty in some
aspects. Chairman Slattum said there is a great division in Town and said he
witnessed it again this evening. Chairman Slattum said he doesn’t know how to
stop this division and sees that getting worse right now. Chairman Slattum went on
to say that on one hand he thought they had to start over and said during his talks
with Mr. Barrett - he has had some issues with this Board. Chairman Slattum also
said that during brief conversations he has had with other Board members, there
was a little disrespect - different philosophies with this Board then there was 3-4
years ago and said the Town Administrator needs to bend with that Board.
Chairman Slattum said everyone goes through new bosses. Chairman Slattum said
that when Mr. Barrett gave his retirement notice he hoped it would be smooth.
There have been some memorandums that have gone out that Chairman Slattum
has found adversarial and said there were other instances - conversations that he
has not liked. Chairman Slattum said he has always enjoyed Mr. Barrett’s company
but they have to work on this riff. Chairman Slattum said sometimes we have to
bite our lips and feels Mr. Barrett has to bite his lip and asked Mr. Barrett if he can
bite his lip sometimes. Mr. Barrett said he could absolutely not compromise his
standards. Chairman Slattum said he isn’t asking him to compromise his
standards. Selectman Cook moved to exercise the Town’s options under paragraph
4b to terminate the Town Administrator’s contract. Seconded by Selectman
Wallace. Chairman Slattum asked for any discussion. Selectman Cook said he
feels it’s in the best interest of the Town. Chairman Slattum said that would be
with eight weeks severance pay and asked when this would be effective. Selectman
Board of Selectmen
April 17, 2000
Page 9


Cook said midnight tonight. Chairman Slattum said that would be with eight
weeks severance pay, vacation pay, bonus … Selectman Wallace said whatever the
contract states is what the Town should provide instead of listing them they should
just say whatever that section of the contract provides as well as required by
Federal Law. Chairman Slattum informed those in attendance that this is not a
hearing. Chairman Slattum turned to Mr. Barrett and said when he says he cannot
compromise his standards then he is saying that he cannot work with the Board.
Mr. Barrett said he is saying that he cannot compromise his standards. Mr.
Barrett said he cannot waiver in his determination to provide the Town of Weare
with the very best administration it deserves. Chairman Slattum said he thinks
that is not an issue. Mr. Barrett said he believes that is the issue. Chairman
Slattum said he feels Mr. Barrett can administer things extremely well. Mr.
Barrett went on to make a point. Mr. Barrett said tonight was a perfect example to
show the techniques of management which the Board has embraced since the last
election. Mr. Barrett said the Board indicated they would have to begin to relieve
him of duties and has been threatening all along and has not done it, yet tonight we
had a very clear situation where the Board members discussed directly with one of
his direct subordinates, that subordinates working time, the hours that would be
put in and the work that would be carried on. Mr. Barrett said if that isn’t an
attempt to interfere with a supervisor/employee relationship then he doesn’t know
what is. Mr. Barrett said you cannot do it - that’s poor management on the part of
the Board. Mr. Barrett said he would not be party to a poorly managed Town. Mr.
Barrett said he’s an administrator and a professional and he has to carry with him
the baggage of the good and the poor they do. Mr. Barrett said his job description
requires that he not only gives the Board the best service he can but he counsels
too. Mr. Barrett suggested they read the job description and stated that the last
time the Board began to discuss his job description, two of the Selectmen hadn’t
even read the job description. Mr. Barrett said they should read it and see what it
says. Mr. Barrett said his job description requires he do the very best that he is
capable of and said he doesn’t believe the Board will permit him to do the very best
he is capable of. Mr. Barrett went on to say that in fact, he knows the Board will
not permit him and has already served notice on him so he says he will not
compromise his standards - they should do what they have to do and he will do
what he has to do. Chairman Slattum asked for further discussion. There was
none. A vote was taken. Motion passed unanimously.

Chairman Slattum moved to adjourn but was reminded that there were other items
on the agenda. Chairman Slattum withdrew his motion.

Leon Methot asked the Board who is going to run the Town in the absence of a
Town Administrator. Chairman Slattum said the Board needs to address this. Mr.
Shields commented that the Board didn’t think of that before firing Mr. Barrett.

Bob Christianson asked if he could make a comment. Chairman Slattum said this
is not a public hearing. Selectman Cook said that he would like to say that this is
not a firing - they exercised their options in the Town of Weare’s contract with the
Town Administrator. It is a parting of ways which is the language that was
incorporated in that contract.
