    7. Discussed Old Business

    • Review of Forms of List -- (tabled to later date)
    • David Patrick would like a letter confirming that our maps currently show less land than is in the Patten Hill Farm Trust -- number of acres needs to be increased per his Forest Plan, but a Forest Plan is not a legal survey
      Fire District Lot 4 might only be 8 acres per old deed -- we might have to adjust lot size from 28.5 acres to 8.0 acres (old deed only has one measurement)
      Board will send the deed to Cartographic for next year's map updates in order to see if they can re-plot lot 4 on map 31 for a more accurate acreage
    • Land of Low Value -- The Board decided that we should not manipulate property values in order to reduce tax title properties. The town needs to go through Land Court if they want to foreclose on them
