Update: Despite unequivocally stating that all four of the 2015 "applicants" had been contacted for continued interest, Kowzic now admits they were not. More to follow.


Highlights of the meeting include a motion to accept the minutes of a prior meeting from a member who was not at that meeting.  The committee's clerk Cathy Anderson does not seem to be up on the Prudential Committee's plan to contact former "applicants." Today district Clerk Treasurer Mary McCoy stated there was no actual application but letters were submitted. Anderson was surprised that the letters presented to them were from 2015.  Chairman Kowzic stated that the four "applicants" had been contacted and wanted to continue to be applicants.

From what can be discerned, the applicants were David Evans, Mr. Lerner, Ed Ransom and a Peter DePass (?) The names were not read into the record. One member stated of the new member "he's going to get on where we are now" and not try to "save $5,000.00 by starting over." Chair Kowzic appears to discount Mr. Learner since his letter said, "I love this town, this is why it's important to keep the fire station where it is."

The Building Committee voted to recommend Mr. Ed Ransom to the Prudential Committee for the vacancy.  He was in attendance.
