Board Agrees to Borrow $100,000 for New Loader

WALDEN – The Walden Select Board met on Monday, August 16. Present were Brenda Huntoon, Randolph Wilson and Bob Hatch

The board passed a motion to borrow $100,000 at 1.5% interest from Union Bank for the new loader, to be paid back in five years. The board is also looking for a contractor to do roof work on the firehouse. The board has contacted the Northeast Correctional Complex Work Camp in St. Johnsbury with the specifications necessary to paint and stain the firehouse and town clerk’s office.

The Internal Financial Controls checklist for municipalities from Vermont Cities and Towns and the contract for the upcoming reappraisal and bills were signed.

The board determined that the late fee will stay in place for unregistered dogs and the curb cut recommendations were again tabled until the next meeting.

The next meeting will be August 30, at 6:30 pm at the firehouse and via Zoom.
