RE: Administrator’s Weekly Report
DATE: May 10, 2018
CC: All Departments ______________________________________________________________________________ ANNUAL TOWN MEETING, SATURDAY, MAY 19, 2018, 9:00 A.M. @ NRSD GYM

Important Notice to All Departments 
Job Openings: Seasonal Laborer (DPW) & Laborer/Truck Driver (DPW), 

Business Meeting or Workshop: The following is intended to supplement agenda items where a full memorandum may not have been required or updates are needed.

6. b. This is to recognize the very positive contribution to our organization of the four interns we have working with us this semester.

6. d. As you now know, the auditorium normally used for Town Meeting is not available to us. After lengthy discussions and on-site review, the recommendation is to move it to the Gymnasium of the High School. While it is in the same building complex it - unfortunately - has a separate street address (#464 versus the warned #462 Baldwinville). We are advised such a move requires a joint decision of the BoS and Town Moderator. This is to hear the formal recommendation of the Moderator and Clerk and hear the steps that will be taken to advise the public and ensure an orderly carrying out of the move.

6. e. This is to adopt a meeting calendar for FY 2019. It includes an expanded and pre-set number of meetings for the budget process. As discussed previously it is based upon the recommendation to move your meeting nights to Wednesday. This has several advantages. It avoids the need to reschedule around any of the Monday holiday conflicts. In fact, I am told that there are no holiday reschedules in this calendar. It means you are here on Wednesday nights to sign warrants avoiding the need for you to make extra trips and avoiding the likelihood we are lacking a needed signature as we face any timelines to release checks. Finally, by moving to a fiscal year calendar each board gets to set its own schedule at its annual organizational meeting.
