Of Interest From The Selectboard Minutes

FINANCE COMMITTEE
The Selectboard would like to have a Finance Committee for the upcoming budget season. Anyone wishing to serve on the Finance Committee should contact a Selectboard member. The committee members from last year will be contacted to see if they would like to serve again.

DINNER TO HONOR STAMFORD WAR VETERANS
Dan Potvin would like to organize a potluck dinner to honor the town’s veterans. The Selectboard supported the idea and thought this Veterans Day would be a good time. Nancy Bushika suggested the Historical Society could bring out some of their civil war memorabilia for viewing that night.

DOG BITE INCIDENT
The Selectboard received a report from a local veterinarian about a dog bitten and treated over the weekend. Luke McKay advised that two loose pit bull mix dogs ran out in the road and attacked another dog being walked on a lead. The two dogs are not licensed with the town and there is no information as to whether they have had their rabies shots. Both dog owners are related and the injured dog owner does not want to file a complaint. Kurt Gamari as Health Officer viewed the dog and said he has a nasty bite that required several stitches. He has been unable to reach the owner of the dogs that caused the incident. The Selectboard discussed scheduling a potentially vicious dog hearing. A letter will be sent requesting that the dogs be licensed with the town within one week, that the owners follow the town’s dog ordinance, and the dogs be quarantined at home for ten days from the date of the attack.
