At its regular meeting on Monday evening, the Brandon Selectboard worked through its agenda, which included appointments to several town committees, the awarding of bids for paving of Arnold District Road, and the funding of the Union Street sidewalk project, among other topics.
The meeting was designed as a “workshop,” in which ideas were exchanged and debated in a conversational style rather than as formal proposals and motions.
The meeting began with the Board of Sewer Commissioners—one of the several hats that the Selectboard wears—and a vote to spend “not more than $51,000” on a pre-owned sewer line jetter to replace the town’s current model.
In a special meeting on Monday evening, before their regular meeting at 7:00, the Brandon Selectboard appointed Heather Fjeld Nelson to fill the vacancy left by Seth Hopkins when he left the board to become Brandon’s town manager.
