Wellarkes Appeal Update:
Julie reported the Zoning Board did not have the authority to appoint David Atherton to speak on behalf of the Town because the Zoning Board cannot make decisions on behalf of the Town; only the Selectboard can.
The Selectboard had a special meeting on Sunday to appoint David Atherton to speak on behalf of the Town at the recommendation of the Zoning Board.
David was here for the telephone conference which was postponed until November. The Judge let David know that he could only be the spokesperson for the initial phone call; not for any pretrial or trial. For the trial it has to be the town’s legal counsel.
David suggested, after it was postponed, that they just contact legal counsel to do the call in November and all future action.
Julie will ask the Selectboard next Monday to authorize Jim Carroll to represent the town if that is ok with the Board. The Board agreed.
Other Business:None
Public Comment: None
Motion by Jeff and second by Bill to adjourn ZBA meeting at 6:12 p.m. All in favor. So approved.
Respectfully submitted,
Sandra L. Trombley, Secretary
