Ed Wheeler expressed his concern regarding the dusty road conditions and requested the Board to contact the town to find out whether something could be done to reduce the dust. Bill Jackson said he would call the Town Manager.
Arnie Wile mentioned the new family of ducks on the pond and whether it might become a problem if they increased in large numbers. It was brought out that the state recommends they not be fed, since there is plenty of natural food available.

The meeting was adjourned at 11:40 a.m. for luncheon at the Monadnock Inn.
Respectfully submitted, Ginny Wile, Secretary/Treasurer
