4. Old Business
a. Swan Brook Outfall Repairs Update
Todd Machnik reported that he had not heard if any grants had been approved for this project to date. He will ask Keith Rosenfeld (Zoning Enforcement Officer) for an update.
b. Sheffield Brook Update
Ellie Czarnowski presented some photos of Sheffield Brook. The first stage of the project is complete and the second stage has begun. Todd Machnik reviewed the process of what has been done so far.
5. New Business
Todd Machnik discussed with members his thoughts on developing some sort of a process where the Board would be able to review plans for repairs or changes to any drainage structures in Town. He did not think that at this time the Town had a policy or a permitting process for these types of projects. Todd will begin by talking with John Flower (Building Official) to find out just what is in place at this time and as to how this could be improved.
