Payroll policy to be strictly enforced in West Newbury

(Continued)

Police Chief Lisa Holmes, fire Chief Scott Berkenbush and police officer Michael Dwyer, who also serves on the Board of Fire Engineers, indicated there is no room for additional antennae on the tower, which already houses four antennae used for public safety operations.

There is also no room on the safety complex’s existing interior or exterior footprint to house an equipment shed, Dwyer said, adding that on-site parking is already at a premium. But selectmen did not rule out the idea and asked Dwyer to work with the representative to further vet it.

A new agreement with the town of Newburyport for shared animal control officer services was approved; a draft of a request for qualifications for a solar panel installation on Pipestave Hill was reviewed; and the International Lilac Society received an OK to use the Town Annex on Sept. 28 for a meeting. The use of facility fee was waived with the stipulation that society would donate some lilacs to the garden club.

Selectmen approved a street opening permit for installation of gas service at 7 Merrill St.

Kemper requested that Chairman Bert Knowles Jr. add an executive session to an upcoming meeting agenda for the purpose of discussing contracts.
