7:30 p.m.  The scheduled Public Hearing of a Notice of Intent for Leslie and Gerald Germaine to repair a septic system at 56 Mashapaug Rd. was held.  Present were the Petitioners.  No abutters came.  Mark Farrell of Green Hill Engineering reviewed the plot plan.  He added to the plot plan “the proposed cut line and extended the silt fence”.  Following discussion, Nathan Gumlaw made a motion to accept the project, seconded by Mary Lovett and all were in favor of closing the Hearing at 7:45 p.m.

7:45 p.m.  The scheduled Public Hearing of a Notice of Intent for Ronald and Barbara LaPierre to repair a septic system at 28 Leno Rd. was held.  No abutters came.  Mark Farrell of Green Hill Engineering reviewed the plot plan.  Following discussion, Marianne Martone made a motion to accept the project, seconded by Nathan Gumlaw and all were in favor of closing the Hearing at 7:55 p.m.

8:05 p.m.  The continued scheduled Public Hearing of a Notice of Intent for Lynn Dailey to repair a septic system at 2 Sandy Beach Rd. was held.  No abutters came.  Mark Farrell of Green Hill Engineering reviewed the plot plan.  Following discussion, James Wettlaufer made a motion to deny the project since we do not have the authority to give permission to cross or dig up a private road which would affect many home owners along Stony Hill Rd., where he plans to install the leach field system.  Also, we believe that all viable alternatives have not been explored regarding the proposed 2 compartment septic tank and pump chamber that are 20 feet from the lake on Sandy Beach Rd. Motion was seconded by Nathan Gumlaw and all were in favor of closing the Hearing at 8:45 p.m.
8:45 p.m.  The scheduled Public Hearing for a Request for Determination of Applicability for Frances Rourke to repair a septic system at 215 Stafford Rd., Map 20-8, parcel 1 was held.
