First Selectwoman Gorski called the meeting of the Board of Selectmen to order at 8:20 p.m.  The meeting was held in the Selectmen’s Conference Room of the Bethany Town Hall.


First Selectwoman Gorski called for a motion of approval for the minutes of the meeting of January 11, 2016.  The motion was moved by Selectman Hurlburt and seconded by Selectman Shea.  The minutes were approved on a unanimous vote.


Selectman Shea moved to refund to Kyle Bramley the sum of $52.56, to SFM Storage, LLC the sum of $30.00 and to Timothy S. MacRae the sum of $15.21, all for overpayment of taxes.  The motion was seconded by Selectman Hurlburt.  The vote taken was unanimous.


Mathew Kirschbaum was present to review with the Selectmen the Eagle Scout project he would like to do at Veterans Memorial Park.  Near the playground at the park he would like to build a structure 12 x 16 for shelter from the sun for individuals who are watching children at the playground.  Mathew had a picture of what the shelter would look like.  The Selectmen all agreed this would be a good project.  They referred him to the Building and Land Use Departments for proper authorization.


Bruce Loomis forwarded to First Selectwoman Gorski details about a new program to dispose of mattresses for the Recycling Center at no cost to the Town.  Bruce will have more information for the next meeting of the Board of Selectmen.

Trash Master has notified First Selectwoman Gorski of their offer to extend the present contract until June 30, 2017 at the current price. 


Adjournment was called at 8:35 p.m. after a motion was moved by Selectman Shea and seconded by Selectman Hurlburt.  The vote taken was unanimous.
