1.    Call to Order, Pledge of Allegiance.

2.    Discussion and decision regarding agenda items.
There were no changes to the agenda.

3.    Discussion and decision regarding approval of the Town Manager’s Performance Evaluation Summary from June 30, 2008 to June 30, 2009 and consideration of a merit increase not to exceed 4%. Town Manager
Bill Kohbarger announced that the Board rated him a 2.75%; including department heads the average was 2.95%.  Mr. Kohbarger graded himself at C+.  He said there is consideration of a merit increase not to exceed 4% and stated he would like to waive the increase at this time as the budget needs all that it can get.  Nicole Shupp verified that Mr. Kohbarger was going to waive his merit increase.  Bill Kohbarger replied yes.  

Mike Darby noted a previous discussion regarding a statement by Mr. Dolan that everyone had to make sacrifices.  Mr. Darby asked if a cut in wages be feasible at this time.  Nicole Shupp said that could be looked at.

Bill Dolan motioned to accept the numbers submitted through Human Resources on the evaluation of the Town Manager and seeing the Town Manager has waived the 4% merit increase and believing staff has already waived the COLA increase which is a sizeable cut that we accept his numbers and schedule a closed session for later on to deal with a possible action plan.  Frank Maurizio seconded the motion.  

Comments were heard from Don Rust, Dave Stevens, Fred Holm, J.D. Cox, Bruce Calley, Pat Kerby (written statement submitted for the record), Jeff Weiss, Bob Irving, Mark Forry, Bill Verbeck, Al Balloqui, John Corlly, Robin Lloyd, Larry Sanford, Charlie Gronda, and Donna Cox.

Mike Darby asked if the previous Board should be included in the evaluation as he has only worked with him for five months.  Nicole Shupp asked Mrs. Bostwick if this could be done.  Terry Bostwick replied it could.  It was decided that it was mute at this time since evaluations have already been turned in.  

Further comments were heard by Rosemary Garrity and Judith Holmgren.

Vote passed 5 – 0.
