  1.  Call to Order:

Mr. Benson called the meeting to order at 7:00 p. m.

2.  Adjustments to the Agenda:

Mr. Benson moved item #5, Town Auditors letter concerning the reported budget to the next order of business.

3.  New Business:

Mrs. Brees wanted to know how the budget amounts are incorporated into the Town Report. She felt there should be a 5th column showing the previous year budget to make a comparison to what was actually spent.  The titles above the columns should be made clear so the tax payers could understand what each column represents.  The Selectboard will be receiving an exported copy of the budget from Teresa Godfrey, Treasurer, from the NEMRC system to create the report.

4.  Old Business:

On motion by Mr. Haggett, seconded by Mr. Kimmel, the Board voted to approve the minutes of January 25, 2016 as written. Mr. Benson abstained because he wasn’t able to make that meeting. Vote 2-0-1

The Board received the contract from Fothergill Segale & Valley for auditing the 2014-2015 tax year. After reviewing the contract, the Board tabled signing until Mr. Kimmel had a chance to contact them with a few questions.

On motion by Mr. Benson, seconded by Mr. Haggett, the Board voted to sign the Intermunicipal Agreement with Randolph, Northfield, and Braintree for the Mountain Alliance. Vote 3-0-0

5.  Accounts Payable:
