Selectmen discuss volunteers, road race, appointments, grant

SHARON — The Board of Selectmen met Wednesday, March 14 (a day later than usual), and disposed of some routine matters:

• Ducky Bancroft, Janet Williams and Joyce Sciepura were re-appointed to the Transfer Station Advisory Committee.

• The selectmen approved the annual request from Sharon Day Care for use of the Town Green and certain roadways for the Road Race, scheduled for May 5.

• Tom Alden, new captain of the amubulance squad, was appointed to the local Emergency Protection Committee.

• First Selectman Malcolm Brown signed off on an application from the Sewer and Water Commission for a grant to help defray the costs of a sewer system upgrade.

• Brown reported that the town has 20 bids out for an outside company to do the scheduled revaluation of taxable property in town. He mentioned that the town of Goshen recently accepted a bid of $70 per parcel; Sharon has roughly 2,500 parcels.

• He also said he has been attending interviews with officials and contractors in Amenia, N.Y., as that town gets closer to the beginning of the remediation of the old Amenia landfill. Sharon’s interest is considerable, as the town will be responsible for testing and maintenance for 30 years.

• Monday morning Brown was knee-deep in papers pertaining to the budget. That process is well along, he said. The budget goes to the Board of Finance next week and then to a public hearing.
