2. Minutes – On a motion made by L. Titus, seconded by R. Browne, the Board voted unanimously to accept the minutes of the 5/5/16 meeting as written.

3. MMA’s LPC Committee nominations – The Board had no suggestions of any candidates to nominate to serve on the Maine Municipal Association’s Legislative Policy Committee, so no action was taken on this item.

4. Cemetery Committee appointments – Sabins stated that she had contacted David Jenney as suggested at the last Selectmen’s meeting. David said that he would reluctantly serve on the Cemetery Committee as long as he was not the only member. Tom Richards stated at the last meeting that Tim Giroux had indicated a willingness to serve. On a motion made by L. Titus, seconded by R. Browne, the Board voted unanimously to appoint David Jenney and Tim Giroux to the Cemetery Committee. Sabins indicated she would have appointment papers ready for the Board to sign at the next meeting, along with the other many annual appointments that need to be renewed.

5. Spirit of America Award – The Board pondered and could not come up with the name of a volunteer to recognize that had not already been recognized. Therefore, the Board decided to take no action on this item this year and will revisit it again next year.

6.
