Sub Committee Reports:
Review Project Charter update-
1. P. Kenyon updated the committee on the financial requests made of the Select Board at their last meeting by the MSVFD. The Select Board would like to meet with stakeholders for municipal facilities.
2. The SB approved the cost of hiring Christine Graham and her team for a listening tour and feasibility study for the municipal building. BC Sub Committee will meet with Christine Graham and her team on Oct 4th to begin that process.
3. Grants- Committee members had found some grant opportunities that we might like to apply for. One for monies around an EV charging station (power connection, signage NOT capital improvements)- the application deadline that make sense for this project is April 30 2019. Another grant was for municipal planning which SB members thought might be able to defray the cost of the fundraising consultant- deadline Oct 1 2018. A third was through the VT Arts Council to partner with artists. K. Bushnell will attend the info session on Oct 25th.
Next meeting Wed Oct 3rd 2018 7 pm at the Library
Kristal Hier, sub clerk
