Chairman Grabowski called the meeting to order at 7:07 p.m.  The meeting was held in the Selectman’s Conference Room of the Bethany Town Hall.
Chip Dumay gave a presentation on proposed repairs to the Amity High School, and the Middle Schools.  The plan is to bond the $2,000,000 cost of the repairs.  They would repair the air handling system at the Amity High School and Bethany Junior High School, renovate to meet code requirements,  the science room, repairs to parking lot at Amity High School Phase I, tennis courts at Amity High School.  They plan to hold a referendum in September the date to be announced.  They would hold a Public Hearing, date to be announced.  The official statement would be ready in December and if all goes well the bond sale would be sometime in February.  It would be a ten year bond.
Superintendent Dumay introduced Terry Loomis as the new Amity School Finance Director filling the vacancy left by Jack Levine’s retirement.  Terry had been Jack’s assistant.
Chairman Grabowski had nothing to report as there has been no meeting of the Amity Finance Committee during the last month. 
Tom Broesler, Finance Director distributed an incomplete report on the Town’s finances for the expenditure’s for the end of the fiscal year.  He gave no bank account recommendations for the accounts he had suggested closing.  Board members questioned when he thought he would have a more complete report on year ending numbers, as they would like to know how the fiscal year was ending. 
Adjournment was called at 7:45 p.m. after a motion was moved by Chip Spear and seconded by Sharon Huxley.  The vote taken was unanimous.
