The Town would maintain utility easements. The motion passed. Don Flook requested approval for the Greentown Main Street Association to hire Jane Ann Howey to assist the Association in steps required to plan and implement a program.

Upon a motion by Roger Wolfe and second by Frank Robertson, the Council approved hiring of Howey.
