Chairperson called the meeting to order. The minutes of the May 11, 2010 meeting were read and accepted and will be distributed.
Mary vandenBerg reports:
1) She and Jim Wettlaufer’s terms are due to expire on 6-30-2010 and both are considering accepting another 3-year term. Their consideration and approval by the Board of Selectmen is to be requested on the forthcoming Selectboard meeting.
2) Various documents need to be entered into the computer. Howard Fife has agreed to train an individual (yet to be named) to do this work. Mary vandenBerg proposed that a $10.00 per hour wage be paid from the Wetlands Protection Fund. All were in favor.
7:40 p.m. Brent Mazelli and Mark Boiteau of Heritage Dr. spoke of their concerns regarding the plugging of a drainage pipe with rocks and other debris by a neighbor. The dammed pipe raises the depth of the Helen Kreiger/ Balderelli pond and with heavy rains causes flooding onto Mazelli and Boiteau’s properties. They requested that a letter be sent to the abutters. A site visit by the Commission is scheduled for June 12, 2010 at 9:00 a.m. We will also visit the property of Patricia J. Scungio at 83 Sturbridge Rd.
8:10 p.m. Debra and Steven Grimaldi of 5 Linder Rd. spoke to us regarding their purchase of Lot #8 on Vinton Rd. They presented their plot plan drawn by Jalbert Engineering and questioned how to proceed. They were informed that a Notice of Intent would be required since their property abuts the wetlands.
8:40 p.m. For our files, we received from the Lake Oversight Committee a copy of a packet sent to Jane Peirce, 319 DRD Coordinator regarding the Hamilton Reservoir, Holland, MA FFY11 319 Grant Application, which is to complete the Sturbridge Rd. Storm Water Management Project.
We received an email from Kristin LaPlante requesting that an All Boards Meeting be held on July 13, 2010 at 6:00 p.m. to discuss the “Green Communities Program”.
The meeting was adjourned at 9:00 PM.
