The Milton Board of Selectmen (BOS) have posted their agenda for a BOS meeting to be held Tuesday, January 15.
The meeting is scheduled to be an entirely Non-Public session beginning at 4:00 PM. That agenda has two Non-Public items classed as 91-A:3 II (b) and 91-A:3 II (c).
91-A:3 II (b) The hiring of any person as a public employee.
Again, probably having to do with the truck driver posting. But, just possibly, something for the police or fire departments.
91-A:3 II (c). Matters which, if discussed in public, would likely affect adversely the reputation of any person, other than a member of the public body itself, unless such person requests an open meeting. This exemption shall extend to any application for assistance or tax abatement or waiver of a fee, fine, or other levy, if based on inability to pay or poverty of the applicant.
These (c) items are perennial favorites. There is only one of them planned this time.
The BOS have not posted any agenda items for a follow-on Public session on this occasion.
Ms. McDougall has called a fifth meeting of her Milton Advocates group. It will take place again in the Nute Library’s Community Room, on Saturday, January 19), at 10:00 AM to 11:30 AM. All town residents are invited. Bring your best manners. (Not her words).
