1. Called to Order:
-The meeting was called to order by Chairman Chris Herrick at 7:00 pm.
2. New Business:
A. There was discussion about obtaining an appraisal for the Lavin property:
– It has come to the Board’s attention that an anonymous resident has offered to make a $500.00 donation toward the appraisal, providing other residents donate enough money to cover the whole appraisal and no Town money is spent. Any resident who wishes to donate may do so at Town Hall.
-Sandy Gregg of the LPWG has spoken to the Champlain Valley Appraisal Company (CVA Co.), a company that is familiar with properties in Grand Isle County. Other companies contacted do not work in Grand Isle County. CVA Co. have estimated an appraisal to be between $1500.00 and $2000.00 (which is below preliminary estimates). It was noted that this company has other appraisals pending and it would be advantageous to get on the schedule as soon as possible to meet the September 1st deadline. Also, it is noted that the appraisal should be done once the waste water capacity survey is complete.
-Anne Zolotas made a motion to pay up to $2000.00 for an appraisal using Town funds, but offset by any possible donations once the appraisal is complete. The motion was seconded and discussed, Jonathan Shaw voted no, the others in attendance voted yes, and the motion carried.
-Carol Tremble made a motion to adjourn 7:20 pm. The motion was seconded, all in attendance so voted, and the motion carried.
Respectfully submitted, Approved by,
Graham Brown Chris Herrick, Chair
