      more bike racks being installed in town with the Planning Board and mentioned that
      because of a heavy traffic flow it may not be a good idea.

      Mr. Alimonti of 321 Hemlock Avenue asked the students what improvements could
      be made in town. Council President Murphy responded a Community Center would
      be nice to have for the kids so there would be a place for kids to go instead of
      hanging out in the streets.

      Mr. Conlin of 349 Hemlock Avenue asked how the students felt about having the
      Council meetings televised. Councilman Palmer responded he felt it would be
      better to not televise the meetings and stated it would be better to have people come
      to the meetings with concerns because the town is very small.
