Zoning Board of Appeals — Meeting Minutes — December 3, 2009

A duly posted meeting of the Shelburne Zoning Board of Appeals was held at the Selectmen's Meeting Room at Town Hall, 51 Bridge Street, Shelburne, on December 3, 2009.

Members Present: Joseph Palmeri, John Taylor, William Sweeney, Ted Merrill
Administrative Assistant: Faye Whitney
Members Absent: Lowell Laporte, John Pollard, Catherine Smith

Chairman Joe Palmeri called the meeting to order at 7:25 p.m. when the meeting room became available following a Board of Health meeting.

Faye will mail a copy of the ethics training information to Ms. Smith, who has been absent for the past two meetings. The Town Clerk requires a receipt, prior to the end of the month, indicating that the information has been received.

At the November meeting the Board had discussed raising application fees from $45 to $85. It was questioned whether fee changes can be made by the ZBA or whether such changes need to be made by the Select Board. Faye will find the answer. The Select Board will also be reminded that the ZBA needs one more alternate member at this time and that one or two additional alternates may be needed in the near future.

A motion was made by Mr. Sweeney, seconded by Mr. Taylor, to approve the minutes of Nov. 10 with minor changes.
Voting in favor: Joseph Palmeri, John Taylor, William Sweeney
Opposed: None
Abstaining: Ted Merrill

The chair approved the Administrative Assistant's time sheet, which reflected two months' work.

The next meeting will be on January 7.

The Board then resumed discussion of the ZBA Rules and Regulations. The discussion had started earlier in the year. The Board reviewed what had already been done and continued through to the end of the document. Minor language changes and clarifications were made.

At 11:15 p.m. Mr. Sweeney moved that the meeting be adjourned. This was seconded by Mr. Merrill. The vote in favor was unanimous.

Respectfully submitted,

Faye Whitney, Administrative Assistant
